Our fishing vessels are equipped with top of the line fishing gear including Shimano Trevala halibut rods, with Shimano Torium reels. Custom made nimble and light salmon rods made by Charlie Bunch out of Anchorage, Alaska with Shimano line counter reels. Each vessel has two deep drop electric rod and reel combo setups for Sable fishing.
Plenty of leads, hooks, spare fishing lines, and bait is stocked on each vessel for a productive day on the water.
We pride ourselves on our fishing abilities. Captain Ryan Martin has been the Laughing Raven's fish master since 1999. Capt. Martin's boats, Cirrus and Corvus can quickly get you to the fishing grounds where you can have your lines in the water within minutes of leaving the dock. Both vessels provide a roomy, safe and stable fishing platforms. Their warm and cozy cabins are equipped with multifunction navigation devices, stereo, heaters, and full heads as well as comfy V-berths to stretch out and take a break from the fishing action.
Proper care of your catch is important to us. Each fish is bled, cleaned and placed on ice to ensure it stays as fresh as possible. Upon returning to Port Alexander our captains pull out all the fish, pictures are taken if desired, then each fish is filleted and portioned in preparation for the trip to the vacuum sealer and blast freezer at the lodge.
