Operator of the Day, June 18, 2015: Fisherman’s Inn

native_OOTD_CTA_710x73_v1Head to a remote backcountry Alaskan island and take a guided fishing trip while staying at the Fisherman’s Inn, our Operator of the Day.

Want to head to the remote Alaskan backcountry but still have a homey experience? Then booking a stay at the Fisherman’s Inn in the Port Alexander, Alaska is for you.

This family-run homestead has been operating, quite successfully, for 16 years by Kevin and Karen Mulligan. When booking a stay at the Inn, you will be 65 miles south of Sitka, deep in the Alaskan wilderness.

Karen keeps a tight ship back at the lodge and always makes “guests feel at home with full bellies.” Kevin can take you on remote backcountry trips in his Cessna 185. He is the only person in the area who holds a U.S. Forest Service permit into the South Baranof Wilderness, making you and your group really the only living humans that deep in the backcountry.

Kevin can also arrange a saltwater trip with the local Chatham Strait Charters that will put you on a range of Alaskan saltwater fish.
