Halibut galore and a whole lot more are available only a short ride from the dock.
Our “Hooker Fleet” consists of the Happy Hookers III, IV and Madam Hooker—the expert fish-catching fleet of Yakutat Lodge. It’s quite possible to land halibut over 100 pounds. Shallow water, mild currents and short boat rides to the fish make Yakutat a halibut dream fishery. Lingcod, rockfish, salmon and halibut are all targeted in the saltwater.
The ocean boats are equipped with new fishing equipment and led by our top-notch professional skippers to ensure your safety as well as an opportunity to experience the highest quality saltwater fishing available. Upon your return, your catch is filleted, packaged and vacuum packed, and frozen for you right at the Yakutat Lodge dock and commercial fish-cleaning facility.
The ocean fishing here is simply among the best in Alaska. Yakutat Bay and surrounding waters, complemented by spectacular mountains and the world’s largest glaciers, provide a stage of incredible beauty where mere words cannot do it justice. Come visit Yakutat Lodge to take in the scenery, excellent hospitality and world-class fishing.
