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.

We came ready to salmon fish. Focused only on salmon. Caleb gave us a straightforward assessment of the river from his morning trip. Talked us into fishing from the boat for both trout and salmon. Had a great four hour float. Caught over a dozen fish and even took some salmon home. Time of year and river conditions determined our day and Caleb maximized our time. Look forward to a full day trip earlier in the season next time.

Caleb was an amazing guide! He was very knowledgeable on where to get us on some trout! He was very helpful to me because I don’t fish very often. We hope to come back next year and plan to book another trip with them! Thanks so much for the top notch service!

Jason and his crew were fantastic! They took us to the perfect spot for our group of 14 to quickly catch our limit of Sockeye Salmon. When the weather changed our original plan, he quickly made alternate arrangements and we had a great time. I would definitely use him again!

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!
