    What a catch: ling cod and red snapper.

    Returning guests Matt Moore and Jon Mayer added
    ling cod to their fishing repertoire this year.They
    landed these assisted by deck hand, Brittney
    Gaethle and Steve Moe, aka Captain Crusty.

    Matt caught the largest one. It weighed 67 pounds,
    which made it a trophy catch. A 55-pounder is the
    qualifying weight for the trophy class distinction.

    This year the lodge expanded its fishing portfolio to
    include ling cod. The season for ling cod opens on
    July first and continues through August.

    Largest Kenai King

    their catch.

    Caught on the Kenai River these kings weighed in at
    70 pounds and 55 pounds.

    Bob Black hosted this party, booking the entire lodge
    for the week. It was Bob’s 3rd trip to the Lodge.

    They fished the salt, the local rivers and went on a
    few fly-outs for an all-round Alaskan experience.

    Helicopter Fishing

    We made good use of the Robinson R44 Clipper II
    helicopter this season for fishing, flight seeing, glacier
    viewing and nature watching. Many guests upgraded
    to this deluxe experience.

    Pirate Night

    The best dressed pirates of the season

    Arrrrrgh, maties …

    We put on a great dinner every night, but Pirate
    Night always proves to be the most popular. This
    year Jerry Quinn and his party out did themselves.
    What great costumes! This was Jerry’s 10th year at
    the lodge.

    Ultimate Father-Daughter Trip

    Heli on Glacier

    Carrie Winsten returned to the lodge this year for her
    4th time and stayed 2 weeks. She shared the second
    week with her father for the ultimate father-daughter

    She booked the exclusive use of the Robinson
    Clipper R44 helicopter and had a dedicated guide for
    the entire week.

    Fresh water fishing for kings and rainbows on the
    Talachuitna was one of the highlights of the trip.
    Here they’ve stopped at a glacier en route to fishing.
