Catch it. Keep it.

One of the best parts of your fishing trip is that after your day is through and you are relaxing in the Alaska Room by a roaring fire, we process your catch for you, so you can take it home. At Twin Islands Retreat, we clean, fillet, vacuum seal, freeze and pack your catch in an insulated waxed fish box that can be checked as luggage on the plane.
