Caring for Alaska Catch
Proper care of your catch is of the utmost importance at Fireweed Lodge. Ensuring the freshness of your Alaska fish starts with your captain, who will take the first steps in caring for your fish.
Upon returning to the dock we will photograph you with your day’s catch, then, fish will be portioned to your specifications and vacuum sealed. Fish portions are then moved into our Alaska resorts commercial grade blast freezers. Once frozen, fish filets are packed into our Southeast Alaska lodges wet-lock boxes which our guests take home as packed baggage.
Guests looking to take home a true Alaska delicacy can choose to use the services of Jody’s Seafood Specialties, an on-site fish smoker. Jody provides options for brining and smoking your catch according to your personal taste, and the same care is taken when packing the fish to ensure freshness, even after prolonged freezing.
Not only will you make new friends at the lodge, upon returning home with your fresh, wild Alaska fish you will have many new friends eager to share in the delicious prize.
