Jeff ,Nadra and the gals, Just wanted to thank you all for a great first-time ocean fishing experience for myself, my two sons and step-son. The fishing was phenomenal. The modern facilities were amazing. We all only traveled there with one carry on. That is all we needed. One stop on the way to your lodge at the Safeway in Ketchikan was all we needed for groceries and booze. About a half hour with Jeff was all we needed to learn where and how to fish. The new boats were top notch. Lots of room for the four of us (ave weight 230 lbs). The new boats are furnished with all the tackle you should need. We spent about $60 bucks a day on fuel. The marina (opens at 6 a.m.) is about 5 minutes away from the lodge for refueling and snacks. We caught lots of salmon within one mile of the lodge. One day (of four) we had 25 pinks and silvers before noon and had to come in and unload, put the fish on ice, and head back out for more. Feasted on crabs we caught (traps furnished) and took survivors home. We each flew home with 100 lbs of mostly salmon, some halibut and rock fish that were cleaned, frozen in 50 lb boxes. All of our fish arrived frozen at our respective airports from Midland Tx, Minot North Dakota, Calif and Colorado. Weather was great, seas relatively calm. Just a super trip. Jeff, Nadra and the girls did a great job making our trip a “once in a lifetime experience”, except that we will be coming back.
