A bonus to guests who choose to stay at Quest Alaska Lodges is that Sitka is a major Alaskan airport. You can be checked into your cabin within 30 minutes of arriving.

The Cabins are comfortable and designed to help guests relax after a long day of fishing. Expect plush sofas and chairs, comfortable beds and private bathrooms. There are three cabins with two bedrooms that can accommodate up to four guests and four one-bedroom cabins with private bath. Total guest occupancy of the island is up to 16 people.

The Fishing at Quest Alaska Lodges

Quest Alaska Lodges is a saltwater fishing lodge, and why not, the waters around Sitka are a prime feeding oasis for huge Halibut, King Salmon and bottom fish. A good way to look at this is to examine the King Salmon. Before they head up river the salmon, my undergo a physiological change. Fishing for them in saltwater provides a sports fishing advantage. The salmon are gorging and full of energy, which means a better fight for fishermen. King Salmon around the Sitka Sound weighs upwards of 70 pounds. Some may even be larger. The Alaska record is 126 pounds for a trophy king.

While the king salmon might sound huge, they pale in comparison to the Pacific Halibut. Sitka Sound is prime halibut waters too. The state record for Halibut is 495 pounds. Halibut divide into two groups, the barn doors, those over 100 pounds, and the chickens which weigh under 100 pounds. Those are serious fish. Plus, they are good eating.

Other Delicious Fish and Monster Predators of Sitka

The bottom fish here are awesome. 20 pound Red Snapper, Sea Bass, and the king of lurkers, the Lingcod. Snapper and sea bass are fun to catch. They don't put up much of a fight, but they are two of the best eating fish you can find. If you are lucky, you might encounter the predatory Lingcod. Lingcod are long and slender fish that survives by eating other fish. It is a fighter. It is crafty and full of energy. The Lingcod is a blue flesh fish and they, like the snappers are amazing to eat.

If you choose to lodge at Quest Alaska Lodges, you will be treated to world-class fishing. The setting is not only amazing; it conveniently located. It is an easy to get to adventure that you will never forget.
