I have a question about lodge fees vs. day fishing and a B&B?
I've only been up to AK once. My wife and I stayed in Wasilla and fished the Little Su, and in Soldotna and fished the Kenai. Both times we stayed in a B&B (about $150 a night for the two of us) and fished with guides (about $100 to $200 per person, per day).
We're going back next year. When I looked into fly-in lodges, the going rate is about $1200 for 3 days of fishing and two nights lodging PER PERSON, not including round trip air from Lake Hood.
If three days of fishing would cost me $300 - $600 per person, what am I getting for my extra $600?
Since there's two of us, we're spending $1200 for three days food and two nights lodging? Does that seem like a lot to you?
For $1200 I can stay in a Five Star hotel for a few nights.
Am I missing something here?
