GENERAL INFORMATION FOR DOVE ISLAND LODGE, SITKA ALASKA
Located on its own private island just a five minute boat ride from the dock in Sitka Alaska, Dove Island is an absolute jewel of a Southeast Alaska fishing lodge. Duane and Tracie Lambeth have built a remote, pristine getaway that is close enough to town to be very convenient. Each day you'll be able to watch a hundred bald eagles gather on the island in hopes of snacking on the scraps of the day's catch of salmon and halibut tossed out by the captains and crew of the Dove Island fleet of boats. This is an amazing sight!
THE BEAVER - YOUR TICKET TO AN ALASKA FRESHWATER FISHING ADVENTURE
Owner, Duane Lambeth, is also PILOT Duane Lambeth. He owns and flies a DeHavilland Beaver - the perfect taxi to the vast remote freshwater destinations within a thirty minute radius of Sitka. If you have never landed on a lake in a float plane, you are in for a real treat.FISHING INFORMATION FOR DOVE ISLAND LODGE, SITKA ALASKA
KING SALMON - CHINOOK FISHING
Imagine the burn in your arms while tangling with the largest of the salmons amidst the unspoiled setting of America’s last frontier. Sitka Alaska has some of the best king salmon fishing on the planet, and one of the best catch rates in the world for both king salmon and halibut. This makes our Southeast Alaska fishing trips some of the most sought after by anglers. At Dove Island Lodge we offer Alaska fishing charters for king salmon in the bountiful waters surrounding our private island in Sitka.
Typical king salmon, also called Chinook, weigh between 15 and 40-pounds, but the kings caught on our Southeast Alaska fishing trips in Sitka Sound can weigh over 70-pounds!
OTHER ALASKA FISH SPECIES
Silver salmon, also known as Coho, are known for their fierce runs and aerobatic displays, and typically weigh between 12 and 18-pounds. Pound for pound, Coho are the best fighting of all the salmon species. We also target plentiful pink, chum, and sockeye salmon on our famous Alaska fishing charters.
Imagine experiencing the thrill of hooking a true Leviathan of the deep, an Alaska Halibut weighing as much as 450-pounds. These trophy halibut are called “barn doors” for a reason, and are lurking along much of the bottom in Southeast Alaska coastal waters. On our Alaska fishing charters at Dove Island Lodge we can make your dreams of challenging these remarkable fish a reality.
Unlike salmon, who spawn and die at the end of their life cycle, halibut spawn numerous times during their many years and grow to astonishing sizes. While 200 to 400-pound halibut are a great trophy and worthy of bragging rights, the smaller 25 to 75-pound fish are often more furious in battle and make the finest of table fare.
Our Southeast Alaska fishing trips depart daily on board our fully outfitted charter fishing vessels. We whisk you away to the hotspots and return each evening to the comfort and luxury of Dove Island Lodge. Our charter boats range from 28-foot SeaSports to a 40-foot motor-yacht. Only four anglers fish from our SeaSports to ensure the ultimate in fast action on our Alaska fishing charters. Our 40-foot yacht is used for special overnight excursions or daily eco-tours.
In 2005, a 34-1/2-foot Coldwater vessel with an 11-foot beam, boasting a full walk-around, was purchased. This boat easily cruises at 30-knots and can comfortably accommodate up to six anglers while still providing 15-feet of space between each fisherman. It also offers spacious cabin seating and a full stand-up private head.
