Hawaii Mom Blog: Visit Alaska- Ice Fishing

Visit Alaska- Ice Fishing

While planning our trip to Fairbanks, Alaska, I checked out viator for excursions and activities in the area. I came upon ice fishing which is something I knew my son would love. Better yet was that it was ice fishing in a heated cabin! Something I knew the rest of us would love.

Our excursion was provided by Rod's Alaskan Guide Service and it was excellent. We arrived at one of their two cabins and were paired with a couple for our 10am to 2pm time slot. Our guide Mike thoroughly explained everything to us including safety measures and also helped us with our fishing poles and bait. We were fishing right away and within the hour we caught a salmon! The kids caught two more which really made our day. The guide will grill whatever you catch so it was a good thing we had 3 between the 4 of us to share. If you don't catch anything, they will still feed you reindeer sausage. The sausage is a mix of reindeer with beef and pork so it tasted just like a hot dog.

Patiently waiting for a bite.

Lauren caught one!

It was a nice day so they even drilled some holes outside the cabin so we could try our luck outside. It was a great and memorable experience for us and I would highly recommend it!
