Before You Get Here

Arriving in Ketchikan

After your plane touches down at Ketchikan International Airport, one of our friendly shuttle drivers will greet you on the curb outside of baggage claim. Hop in the van, where you will be whisked away to the lodge of your choice.

Alaska Fish Regulations  – As a leader in our industry, ASE Resorts insists that its guests adhere to all State and Federal fishing regulations. Although we are happy to provide current regulation information, full Southeast Alaska fishing regulations can be found online. If you have any additional questions please give us a call.  If we don’t know the answer we are happy to make a call to local law enforcement officers who are always willing to give us an accurate explanation.

Fish Processing – Our staff will fillet, vacuum pack, freeze, and box your catch according to your directions and specifications. Our system is designed with multiple backups in place to ensure that you get the fish you caught makes it's to your dinner table.

Shipping – Due to the rising costs of excess baggage and the hassle of handling boxes on the way home from a fishing trip, many of our customers have opted to have their catch shipped home via FedEx. Although expensive, FedEx Overnight Delivery serves some added benefits including an overnight delivery guarantee, and the ability to choose a delivery date and location that is convenient for you. FedEx rates run in the $6 to $7 per pound range, depending on the quantity shipped delivery location.

Gratuities – As many of our customers complete their trip and prepare to return home it is not uncommon for customers to request information on gratuities. Being part of the service and travel industry, gratuities are a common way of expressing appreciation for exceptional service. That being said, we strongly believe that gratuities are earned, not expected. Nothing short of a great experience should be worthy of a gratuity! Unless you stipulate otherwise, all gratuities are pooled and split among all staff members. Skippers must be tipped separately. We offer the following suggestions based on your experience at our resorts:

Guide Tips
