Fishing inside a warm cabin with a FUN guide who cleans and cooks your fish. What could be better???
Nov 2021
This was great! Cody was an excellent host. He was kind, funny, so very helpful and entertaining. He was attentive to all the guests- obvious he likes what he does, is good at it. and wants us to have a great experience.
After getting a pole, a place to sit, and hanging up our coats, our lines were baited for us, and we received a few hints about depth and technique. It was fun interacting with the other guests while listening to great classic rock music - sometimes with the lights off. Cody was always busy (but not too busy to chat): he kept the wood stove stoked, and while it never got hot inside considering it was colder than negative 25 degrees that evening, it was pretty warm and only my toes got cold. Many of the guests were from Los Angelas and even they seemed comfortable:)

We were offered hot chocolate and cold water throughout the time. The Reindeer (caribou) sausages were grilled on the wood stove after a couple hours and were pretty yummy. There were seven small king salmon caught by the 12 of us in the group ( with my husband and I each catching 2). I'm sure it was more fun catching than not, but it appeared all enjoyed our time. Cody then cleaned all the fish and then cooked them with butter and seasoning in foil packets on the wood stove. Even a non-fish lover like myself found them to be flaky, mild, and tasty. Although it was a really cold night, the rising moon was gorgeous and worth the trips outside. The four hours flew by and it was definitely a highlight of the trip!

Great time ice fishing
Nov 2021 • Family
The ice fishing was a great experience. We were warm and cozy inside catching rainbow trout. Our guide, Andrew worked hard making sure everyone was having a good time, catching fish and eating well. We ate reindeer hot dogs and ended the day with fresh trout cooked right in the fishing hut. Delicious. We fished with 13 people, some had never even fished before so I have to say I was a bit disappointed in that many people, but it turned out to be a great time cheering each other on and having interesting conversations. Andrew was all over the place cooking, baiting hooks, taking fish off, serving hot chocolate. He was excellent. It was well worth it and we had a fantastic time and would certainly do it again. Remember to tip your guide, they so deserve it.

Ice fishing is extremely easy. A lot of our guests have never fished before and typically catch multiple fish. Thank you for the review.

Ice fishing is a great way to spend a morning or afternoon. I move ice fishing locations often--to stay on fish. I send a reminder email 24hrs prior to your fishing adventure. In the email is a google pin drop and turn by turn driving directions. Thank you for the review.

This was excellent!! We had Clarence as our guide and he was very knowledgeable and good spirited. I didn’t catch any fish but my dad caught 11 and most of the rest of our group caught at least 1. The cabin was also generally cozy. My only regret is not bringing whiskey, this is definitely a BYOB situation.

Amazing
Nov 2021 • Couples
Even though the fish weren’t biting too much this afternoon we had a great time with our group and tour guide Clarance. I caught a rainbow trout which he immediately cooked up with some butter, lemon, and pepper which was quite amazing. Better than any fish you can get at a restaurant if you ask me. Everyone in our group was able to snag a fish outta the ice fishing hole except for my unlucky wife but she still had a good time conversations with our group and Clarence. It was too early in the season to bring the cabins out on the lake so we were set up in a tent but it was just fine. Clarence had a couple portable heaters in there he had on and the tent did a great job trapping the heat inside. I unfortunately didn’t have any reception out there but I had a portable speaker Clarence connected to and he had some great music to share with all of us and keep the vibe going strong in the tent. 11/10 would recommend to anyone visiting Fairbanks Alaska. And to Clarence: thank you again brother. We had an amazing time. Definitely a highlight of our visit here:)

Great Experience
Apr 2021
Rods ice fishing trip is great!! Clarence was our guide and he was fantastic. No request was too much for him. Everyone in the group caught at one fish. The building that you fish from was warm from the stove and was comfortable. They had reindeer sausages cooking on the wood burning stove when we came in and it was delicious. When we were finished fishing Clarence cooked our fish for us. The whole experience was great! Tony drives for Rods sometimes and he picked us up at our hotel took us to the fishing. He is a great driver.

Andrew was a wonderful tour guide, very down to earth, fun, very accommodating and has some awesome stories! The experience itself was very neat, as I had never done it before. I was happy to be able to fish both inside and outside for a different experience with both....the reindeer sausage and fish were wonderful as well! The time surprisingly went quick too!

Just before the ice fishing we did a mushing tour and a very nice man (can't remember his name 🥺) drove us to Santa clause house to pass time in between the mushing tour and the ice fishing. He then picked us up from Santa clause house and got us over to ice fishing...then picked us up at 5pm to take us back to our hotel!!! He knows so much and I truly enjoyed learning from him so we thank you!
Now for the ice fishing we had Clarence as our guide and he was very nice and helpful. Me and my boyfriend caught 4 fish together and we ate the reindeer fogsy. The rainbow trout tasted the best in my opinion. Nothing better than super fresh caught fish! We also got to throw the eagle our fish heads!!!
We stayed mostly outside the cabin as it wasn't toocold and wanted to experience the full ice fishing effect. It was sprinkling snow and it was very magical. 100% would do again and would recommend! Thank you

Now that temps have increased (20+F) we offer our guests to fish outside of the heated cabin for a bit cooler experience. The cabin is always warm if you are chilled fishing outside. Thank you for the review.
