Getting to Sure-Strike Lodge
Getting to Sure-Strike Lodge: Upon arrival at Ketchikan International Airport, your party will need to check in at the Pacific Air OR Island Air Express counter. There, you will be greeted by a representative and shown where and when to embark on your flight to Prince of Wales Island, and SURE-STRIKE LODGE.
Please make sure that we have your itinerary and names of the other people in your party by early April at the latest so that we can make the necessary float plane reservations.
What to bring
Warm layered clothing, sunglasses, rubber soled shoes (we do have raingear and boots available at the lodge), and a camera. We also recommend that you bring a carry on bag because of the added baggage going home (fish boxes) and also to avoid the possibility of lost baggage in route to Alaska. If you like to check your e-mails daily, bring your lap top, we do have wireless internet at the lodge now.
Medical History & Diet
Please advise us of any medical problems or allergies that you might have, and of any special diet you may be on so our chef can prepare meals suitable to your needs.
(The dinners at Sure-Strike always include a meat and fish option- freshly caught of course. We have crab at least one night the guests are here. Quality meals are a big expectation at the lodge.)

GearDownstairs in the lodge we have rain gear and boots to use for your trip. Just leave used rain gear on the bench seat at the end of your trip so it can be washed. If you need help finding your size, just ask.
There is also a display cabinet downstairs with garments that are available for purchase including hoodies, jackets, T-shirts, hats etc. Ask the hostess at any time during your stay if you are interested in looking at or purchasing any new gear.
MealsBreafast is served at 5:30am, head down to the dock afterward to meet up with your guide.
Lunch is available on the boats consisting of sandwiches, water, soda, and other snacks.
Dinner is served between 6:00 – 6:30 pm. Often appetizers will be ready by the time you arrive after fishing.
The hostess is available to make store runs during your trip to get anything else you might need from the liqour or grocery stores.
FishThe fish from each boat will be filleted, vacuum sealed, frozen, and split only among your group. The fishcutters will box for each person, so it will be ready to go when you are.
RelaxingDownstairs in the main lodge there is a pool table, shuffleboard, refridgerator, ice machine, and a variety of board games that you are welcome to use during your stay. Upstairs you are free to watch DirecTV or put in a movie. There is also a fire pit and chairs down near the water, let us know if you want help getting a fire going!
Last DayOn your last day of fishing you will find packets containing the times each group will be leaving the next day and gratuity information.
If you have any questions about any aspect of your stay please don’t hesitate to ask.
