If there is truly a fisherman's heaven, it would be Kodiak Island Resort on Larsons Bay, Kodiak Island, Alaska. However, if you aren't interested in catching 100+ pound halibut, or, 40+ pound ling cod, or, 20+ pound yellow eye rockfish, or 5+ pound black sea bass, or, 10+ pound pacific cod, don't even think of going there. I took my two sons back to Kodiak Island Resort in July, 2014. This was my 2nd time at the fishing resort to top all fishing resorts. The beautiful lodge is owned by Allen Wallburn and his wonderful wife April. The great fishing boat is captained by his son Joe who has never failed to put the boat on a spot loaded with fish. During a 4-day fishing vacation, we caught halibut over 110 pound on two different days. On my last trip back in 2009, an individual fishing with us boated a 287 pound halibut and my son caught a 141 pound halibut. I never cease to be amazed by Joe's ability to put the boat on top of fish, even in 300 feet of water. If ever you want a salt water fishing experience of a lifetime, I strongly recommend that you sign up five nights lodging and 4 full days of fishing at Kodiak Island Resort. Can't wait to go back for my 3rd visit.
