Once again I was fortunate enough to spend a couple of days at Baranof Wilderness Lodge. Mike, Sally and their entire staff are in a word, great. The lodge's location is spectacular and only a short trip from Sitka. The food is fantastic, actually better than fantastic. The "Fun Board" allows guests each night to select the next days activity. The fishing is unreal and the guides are extremely knowledgeable and fun to fish with. You fish in relatively calm shallow waters which makes the days much more enjoyable than fishing in high seas at depths of 400 feet. Can't wait to come back!
