KETCHIKAN, ALASKA, UNITED STATES, June 16, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The 2021 sportfishing season at Waterfall Resort Alaska kicks off June 17. Its traditional, season-long King of Kings Salmon-Tournament opens with the first arriving guests. It’s one of the largest tournaments in Alaska for ocean sport fishing.
King of the Day (KOD) winners are announced each night at dinner for the tournament-registered guest who lands the largest king salmon of the day. In addition to onsite and social media recognition and a Waterfall Resort Alaska cap, every daily winner is entered into the season-end’s drawing for $10,000 or a Ford F-150 truck. Plus, the season’s biggest king salmon wins $10,000. First-time Guest and Youth (under 18) win return trips for season’s largest king salmon in that category. Weekly and monthly winners for both king salmon and silver salmon receive awards that include return trips, Cabela’s merchandise, and thousands of dollars in cash.
If you’re a golf fan, there’s a chance to win the Great Alaska Tee Off, July 12-16. It’s a 165-yard drive across the saltwater lagoon to win prizes from the General Store and Lagoon Saloon.
Next to the tee area, the Lagoon Saloon, with its great drinks and other entertainment, is a great place to celebrate winning the longest drive, the biggest king salmon or to simply just share the best “big fish” story.
“Some friendly competition adds that extra reward to the already memorable and jaw-dropping adventure that Alaska provides everyone,” Steve Cockrell, General Manager, shares. “Our combined competitions give away more than any other resort in Southeast Alaska. Plus, some boats enjoy their own private contests among the boat mates, between boats or within a family.”
A 90-minute flight from Seattle, Waterfall Resort guests are greeted at the Ketchikan airport and taken to the resort by float plane. Anglers of all skill levels embark on expertly guided sport-fishing excursions to land king salmon, silver salmon, halibut, lingcod, and more. Southeast Alaska’s breath-taking landscape is filled with awe-inspiring wildlife including humpback whales, orcas, bald eagles, otters, puffins, and more. As evening approaches, guests share fish tales at the Lagoon Saloon then feast on hearty Alaskan fare and fresh seafood in the Dining Room.
