This is our 12th year visiting Steele and the hardest part of the trip is leaving. We caught lots of halibut, some kings, spent time watching the weather change right outside the window, ate great food and generally unwound and rejuvenated. This year was a bit more laid back than in other years. The fishing was great as usual but we also spent a lot of time hanging out watching the whales and the eagles and the foxes. Next year we're going on a bear watch! This is the trip we look forward to every year and we won't miss it for anything. If you are looking for a unique adventure with a guide who truly works to make your trip memorable, I recommend Steele's hospitality at Spirit of Alaska! You won't be disappointed. Bring your rubber boots-you will need them!
