Mother Shipping Sitka
This is a perfect service for anglers or hunters who want to go remote as possible and stay a while!! Going out in fishing grounds less fished is certainly the right idea! One of our local partners who rents small boats for self guided boat tours is Fish Baronof. Instead of returning your rental on same day, rendezvous with Bear Paw as your floating luxury accommodation awaits for your arrival. Throw your fish in the freezer (limited space) and have a hot shower prior to your chef prepared family style dinner. Help yourself to the bar to accommodate your cocktail creations and relax after dinner around the firepit or have a dip in our 4 man hot tub to rid of the aches of a hard day of fishing. An evening under the midnight sun will soon enough greet an early sun rise to head back out to the fishing fields in the morning. Hot breakfast, a sandwich to go and fresh ice for your cooler will be supplied. Go fish!!
This also works well for full service fishing charters doing day trips. Full service charters can drop you off and they take your fish back to Sitka for processing. We can return you to Sitka if with in 5 miles via tender or other advance arrangements. Float planes or the fishing charter boats are commonly used to swap out guests partnered with a lodge for back to back mother-shipping bookings with their guests.
