Thanks Erin for your posting--I found it helpful as well as I'm sure the original poster did. I'm looking for a good guide for salt water charters out of Kodiak, as well as a fishing lodge on the island. I've fished in Ketchikan, in Sitka and on the Kenai, some on my own, some at lodges with charter boats.
I'd like to put together a trip for my nephew and myself to combine roadside/stream fishing as well as salt water boat fishing. If there is a lodge that really concentrates on fishing (rather than hunting) and does a good job I'd love to know about it. I would also appreciate a place that serves as much local food as possible. Any strong recommendations about folks that provide good service, good guiding would be very welcome. I know Alaska's rough side and have had a few experiences I'd rather not repeat. thanks for any comments or direction.
