This coming August will be my 5th trip up to the inlet. It will also be my 4th year in a row to Sportsman's Club. From the moment you step off the plane you are greeted by Simon and the entire staff...you immediately feel at home and amongst friends.
There are so many different ways the staff will go out of their way to make you feel welcome...from Simon waking everyone up early in the morning with his bugle, the Hardy breakfast that await you in the dinning room to get your day started, the option of coming in for a hot lunch or having sandwiches packed for you along with a hot thermos of coffee. My highlight is the dinners from Rack of Lamb to Prime Rib with lots of sea food in between and who can resist the fresh baked cookies at the end of the evening!
The scenery is un-.parallel ! We have see hundred's of Dolphins racing along the shore line, Orca's swimming in pods, Whales breeching meter's from your boat and too many Bald Eagles to count.
The fishing is world class! The staff will orientate you on all the different types of fishing from mooching , using the down riggers to bottom fishing for Halibut. Your gear is top notch, ready to go. All you have to do is head out on the water , drop your line and take in the scenery. Most everyone limits out and with all the boxes of packaged fish on the dock at the end of the trip you'll think they will need to bring in another plane just to fly the fish out!
August can't come fast enough. I have met so many wonderful people from all over the world up at Sportsman's. Every one comes up as fishermen, by the end of the trip they all leave as friends. I have been fortunate to be able to bring my son on one of the trips. I can't wait to take my daughter up next year so she too can experience my version of "Heaven on Earth"
