what type of fishing package do you recommend for 1st timers and how many days. Would like to go en of June next year 2017.
First timers will love the 3 day package. You'll be impressed with the lodge, accomodations, efficiency of the entire staff, quality of food and service, and you'll be totally wiped out!! I have to start pumping iron months before I go to reel in those big halibut, but it is so worth it. The lodge flash freezes all fish after filleting them, and the heavy plastic vacuum seal keeps your fish fresh for a year! Bonus! They package fish in 45 lb. boxes for airline check-in, and all you have to do is be ready to store them in a freezer once you get home. Happy eating!!!
Good news/bad news. We have done the three day for the last two years. We like it and have a three day planned for 2017 but a four planned for 2018. So the good news is....first timers can get a great feel with the 3 day and plan for more if you like it another year. Bad news.....June 2017 looked completely booked (we are trying to add our 4th day). This place books up 2-4 years in advance.
We have gone for both 3 and 4 days and for our family we find 3 is better. It's a long day of fun and excitement, but it is tiring. Besides, you catch so many fish, you'll have to buy a new freezer after three days. Book soon so you're not disappointed. Great place and life-time trip.
Well, we were also 'first timers'. We went for 3 days of fishing (which allows you to limit-out on Kings: 2/day--no real reason to fish longer) we brought home about 100 lbs of salmon/halibut filets/person. I am also looking at going back end of next June, maybe will see you there!
