Fishing off the coast of Alaska is an exciting endeavor every serious angler should consider. One of the state’s most productive waters, the Cook Inlet, is teeming with a wide variety of saltwater targets. There’s nothing like trolling along the open ocean searching for halibut, salmon, and other desirable species with snowcapped mountains in the background. Very few places can illustrate Alaska’s beauty, like the Cook Inlet. And for those wishing to experience an angling adventure of a lifetime, Jimmy Jack’s Fishing invites you to The SeaScape Lodge, situated on the inlet’s bluffs. But before you start packing, we’ll share a few things you didn’t know about our beloved fishery.
