    Default 8th Annual Once in a Lifetime Fishing Trip to Kodiak

    The weather was off the charts beautiful, the fishing was slow, the company was great although two key members of the trip could not make it.
    All in all there are many worse ways to spend a week, but not too many that would be superior.



    St. Paul's Harbor, Kodiak



    Me, Margaret & our Halibut


    Chris with his Yellow Eye Rock Fish


    Me with my Ling Cod


    If there is anything I can answer for you or assist you with please let me know.
    Thanks and have a great day,

    It's a mutual friend with a private boat.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

    We fish out of St Paul's Harbor on our friends 36' Uniflite
    We fished using 12 oz lead heads with 11" grubtails (the blueglow were the most successful).
    The weather was like we were fishing in the Bahama's, 55-70* and sunny and no wind which made the drifts weak and the fishing slow.
    We fished 1 to 5 miles from the harbor, fishing rockpiles for rockfish & lincod, more open bottom for Halibut.
    When we fished Halibut by bouy 4, using Herring fillets & a diamond jig as a weight/bottom hook.
    Fishing mostly jgging setups, Andros 5's & 200g jigging rods, Mak10's with 400g jigging rods.
    I highly suggest a fishing trip to Kodiak, it's a blast and great way to spend a week.
