At Larsen Bay Lodge the adventure still remains! Here you can still experience the raw beauty and bountiful wildlife of Alaska - without the crowds. We offer saltwater AND freshwater fishing.

Larsen Bay Lodge's fleet includes a 65' aluminum fishing boat the Eagle One. With a broad 16' beam, heated cabin, kitchen, head, shower, flat screen TV and bunks, you can fish and relax in total comfort. Come let us spoil you.
Hunting adventures abound at Larsen Bay Lodge with a long season and liberal limits on Sitka Blacktail Deer and wonderful duck hunting for such exotic species as Harlequin and Barrow's Goldeneye as well as predator hunting for fox (red, silver and cross fox). We also offer a limited number of spring and fall hunts for Kodiak Bears in our exclusive guide use areas.
Your host at Larsen Bay Lodge: Mike Larson, Owner. Mike is a Registered Big Game Guide in the State of Alaska and like his father continues to give back to his community. He has served on the City Council and the Tribal Council for many years. He also supports the Elders by subsistence hunting for them. Mike is a Shareholder in the Koniag Native Corporation, which gives Larsen Bay Lodge access to native lands where outsiders are not permitted. He has also been involved in meetings with The Alaska Dept. of Fish & Game,, as well as the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge,, as those agencies administer invaluable management of the wildlife resources and habitat found on Kodiak Island.
Hunting and fishing experience at Larsen Bay Lodge: Mike Carlson's Kodiak Brown Bear hunts are an experience of a lifetime! Much of the hunting is done from a boat with a drop ramp and heated cabin. The advantage being you can cover significantly more ground than on foot and are not spreading scent. Accommodations are in a comfortable lodge with a five star chef, satellite TV and WiFi. Mike also has exclusive guide use areas, which means you are guaranteed a tag. These areas surround the famous Karluk Lake and Karluk River which have the largest salmon runs, which means the largest bear population, on Kodiak Island. Further, he is a member of the Koniag Tribe which means you are hunting on private native lands which no one else can access. Check him out on The History Channel's "The Hunt". Mike is featured on three of the episodes. We also offer deer and duck hunts to make your adventure more enjoyable. Click here for quick link country guide.
We have six different freshwater locations to target. All are 5-15 minute flights from the lodge. The lodge owns its own floatplane, allowing us unprecedented access and flexibility. Rivers are highly regulated on Kodiak, and we are lucky to have permits on all of the best locations. These regulations ensure a pristine wilderness experience, rather than the crowds of “combat fishing on the mainland. Be sure to request that your guide prepare a “shore lunch where your guide takes one of your freshly caught fish and prepares a delicious meal over a fire on right on the riverbank. Forget “Farm to Table. It does not get any fresher than “River to BBQ in ten minutes! The three highly prized salmon species are King (Chinook), Sockeye (red) and Silver (coho) Salmon. We have both early and late summer runs of sockeye, meaning that this delicious, rich, red fish is available all summer long. Kings tend to be earlier in the summer, and silvers later. Kings and silvers are also caught by trolling on the saltwater. We also provide saltwater fishing. Click here for quick link country guide.
