Shipping Fish

There is nothing as mouth watering as the smell of a wild caught salmon as it sits in a layer of sizzling oil. There’s nothing that gets the stomach rumbling like a big slab of wild caught salmon sitting over a bed of charcoal. It’s one of the main reasons anglers from all over the world come to Alaska. We have great salmon runs.

A question I get all the time is, how do I get my fresh Kenai River salmon home?

When you fish with Jason’s Guide Service we fillet any salmon you catch and keep.  After your day on the water we will direct you to a reputable fish processor who will vacuum pack your fish for you.  Once you have your fish packaged you have the option of paying the processor to freeze and store your fish, or you can bring them to where ever you are staying.

After you have packaged and frozen fish the best two options for transporting home is shipping through FedEx or bringing it home as luggage.  The FedEx option is great for people who are on the front end of their vacation and don’t want to travel with fish.  The luggage option is my favorite because it costs a lot less.

How much it costs exactly to ship salmon by Fed Ex, varies depending on weight.  The cost of bringing it home as luggage depends on what airline you fly and how many checked bags you have.  With a couple phone calls you should be able to come up with a ball park estimate of cost and budget it into your trip.

Once you get your fish home the only logistic left is making sure you don’t let the secret out that you have some Kenai River salmon on the menu or you may discover you have loads of close friends and neighbors who will just happen to arrive at your door around dinner time.

Caleb had us on the Trout even when they were a little hard to find! Always handy with a new lure or spot to try when things ran cold and we were right back on em. Great guide, great fishing. Don’t hesitate to book. Thanks so much!

Jason….the man, the myth, the legend. We did two days with Jason and one with Caleb. All spectacular. They put us on the fish, took care of all the details and told some great stories. We had some laughs, saw some beautiful country and took home 36lbs of fish! These guys are very knowledgeable of the area and will hone your fishing skills at whatever level you are at. Stop researching “the other guys” and just book em! You can thank me later….

We had the best time with Jason and his team on our fishing trip! We did a half day with Caleb and a full day with Jason and left with over 40 pounds of salmon. Both Jason and Caleb were friendly, knowledgeable about the best spots on the river, and were great teachers on fishing technique that made it easy for all skill levels. Highly recommend Jason and his team for your next Alaskan fishing adventure!!
