The Highlights of Jimmie Jack’s 2016 Summer Fishing Season

This summer was a great one at Jimmie Jack’s Alaska Lodges. We caught giant fish, had some wonderful guests, and purchased a 5-star property.

We are here on the banks of the world famous Kenai river at the end of the summer fishing season of 2016. We had a great summer and did a lot of exciting things that we’d like to share with you today.

We had the privilege to be featured again on Channel 2 KTUU, one of our local channels out here. They came out on the boat with us and caught some massive silver salmon, among other fish. NFL legend Larry Csonka and his former teammate Norm Evans joined us for a trip. They had a great time out there on the water.
Looking back, we had an incredible summer and now look forward to an exciting new future here at Jimmie Jack’s!
We caught a lot of Lingcod and Yelloweye Rockfish this summer, as well as the largest halibut caught out of Ninilchik. It was 345 pounds and caught by our Seascape guest John. The fight was impressive, but with the help of Captain Charlie Barberini and his deckhand, Cooper, they were able to wrangle it into the boat. Watch the exciting capture in the video above.
Outside of fishing, the biggest highlight of the season is that we acquired the Alaska Seascape Lodge, which allows our guests to experience the ruggedness of Alaska with the amenities of a 5-Star property.
The water level has been dropping, it’s getting cooler, and we are just getting in some last-minute fishing before the colder months come. If you have any questions for us or if you’re already looking ahead to plan your trip for next year, give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you.
