Thinking about a fishing trip in Alaska is never too early, especially when there are so many considerations to do so. The length of the trip, lodging and meals, boat size, crew and experience, and many other things come into play when deciding where to go. Sitka has the highest unit of angler success per unit of effort for anywhere in SE Alaska! 40% of all the salmon and halibut sport caught in SE Alaska are landed out of this one port alone! Now that you are dialed into to Sitka as your Alaska fishing destination, the next question to ask yourself is what company I want to book my trip with? Alaska Premier Charters, Inc. and Wild Strawberry Lodge have been in business for over 23 years. With this length of fishing lodge experience over the years, we make sure your saltwater fishing vacation is hassle free while you enjoy fishing for King Salmon, Halibut, Lingcod, Rockfish and Silver Salmon in scenic Sitka, Alaska.
We provide all your transportation beginning from airport pickup, to visiting Sitka’s many natural beautiful areas. There are several historic areas, wildlife viewing centers, and shops to get souvenirs for the family back home. You don’t have to worry about driving anywhere, because we provide transportation anywhere you need to go to do shopping or sightseeing on the Sitka road system.
All of your meals except your arrival night dinner are taken care of in-house. A full hot breakfast is prepared by our skilled breakfast cooks before you embark on your fishing adventure each morning. Boat lunches consist of deluxe deli combo sandwiches (ham, turkey, and roast beef) along with fruit, chips, drinks and lots of homemade cookies. Our wonderful staff makes fresh home baked cookies every day for your enjoyment. For dinner, our professional chef prepares a scrumptious appetizer, a gourmet meal, and top notch dessert for all guests.
