It’s that time of year to firm up your plans for next season in Wild Alaska. Although openings seldom exist, this is the time of year when changes to our schedule can occur. Drop Capt Larry a note or give him a call and see if anything has come available or get on the waiting list for your favorite week. After all, if you can’t be in Wild Alaska, talking about it is the next best thing! Aaaargh...we’ll be back on the water soon...THANK GOD... ... See MoreSee Less

With great relief, but deep concern I write this call to action. Capt Ricky Gonzales, a member of the Wild Alaska family and crew who many of you have fished with, needs our help. "Ricky was in a horrible accident in the early morning hours of November 6th; where he remained pinned in his truck for five hours before being both found and rescued. He was taken to the Legacy Emanuel Trauma Center in Portland where he was taken to surgery for six hours and placed on heart and lung bypass to repair the inside layers that had torn in his Aorta. He then went through another five hour surgery to repair his fractured right hip. He also suffered a fractured sternum, fractured all of his ribs, injured his spleen, and suffered a pneumothorax. He spent five days in the Cardiac ICU and then to the Cardiac floor. Ricky needs our help. His recovery will be long and painful. He won't be able to work for the foreseeable future and his mom will have to become his full time caregiver when he goes home. He won't be able to bare weight for the next eight weeks. If you can show Ricky some love it would be GREATLY appreciated by not only Ricky, but his family." I've taken the liberty to copy the above from Ricky's Gofundme page. Capt Ricky has some rough water ahead, as his "old" boss I know he can navigate this storm, but he'll need support from his friends. Although Ricky has taken a new career path of late, he remains an important member of the Wild Alaska family and if there's anything you can do, anything, from a card to a phone call to financial assistance, he'll appreciate your thinking of him. You can reach out to his gofundme ( gf.me/u/y9qzgg ) account or contact me and Ill see to it your thoughts, prayers or assistance in anyway make their way to him. Join me in wishing Capt Ricky a speedy return to health. Aaaargh.....we love ya Rick... ... See MoreSee Less
