What To Bring

First and foremost, Alaska weather is unpredictable everyday. With that being said, we want to make sure you are fully prepared for your fishing adventure with us! As a priority, we recommend you bring/ or dress warm and bring additional layers so you are comfortable throughout the day, as weather may change. With that being said, having proper wind resistant and waterproof layers are highly recommended.

In addition to warm layers, we recommend the following:

  • Packed lunch and drinks (no hard alcohol allowed on-board)
  • Waterproof/ Non-slip footwear
  • Additional raingear
  • Hats/ Sunglasses
  • Coolers- (review here)
  • Camera’s – Of Course!
  • Any motion sickness remedy for those who are prone to sea sickness- Always consult with your physician prior to use
  • Valid Alaska Fishing License- You can buy online at Alaska Fish and Game website, or purchase while in town at a local store
Now that we have you prepared, there’s one thing you must know prior to loading our boats- NO BANANAS!!

As quirky as this sounds, they are bad luck and taken very seriously in the fishing world! 🙂  Back in the good ole’ days when pirates roamed and sailing ships sailed, sailors would feast on fruit to prevent the sickly/deathly disease of scurvy! Since bananas would ripen and lead to spoiling faster than most fruits, larvae from the bananas skin would begin to hatch and the infestation began! The bugs infected the rest of the fruit and the crew on board, causing serious sickness/- even death. Due to this, bananas became known as bad luck on boats as well as any mention of them!

Prevent misfortune on your fishing day and leave the bananas behind- or they’ll walk the plank!

See you on the water!

~Cheers!
