“Old Harbor is one of the top 5 destinations in the world for trophy class king salmon in the salt.” – ESPN Seattle

“I’ve fished and hunted with Kodiak Combos and would recommend Jeff Peterson to the serious outdoorsman. His knowledge of the area around Old Harbor is unparalleled. On a past trip with Jeff, while trolling in a nondescript location, he commented that the kings would be found in a tight pattern, roughly a circle over this particular spot. He also said that if we were to stray outside of the circle then we would hit rockfish. No sooner did he make the statement then we doubled on kings. After landing the twin 25-pounders, we set the gear again but drifted outside the circle and doubled on rockfish. It’s this kind of intimate knowledge of the aqueous terrain that makes Peterson deadly. While hunting the area for blacktail in September 2009, we were able to land seven species of fish in one day, which included several fat kings. Now that’s a Kodiak combo.” – Marcus Weiner, Publisher Fish Alaska magazine and Hunt Alaska magazine

“I’d be hard pressed to recommend any company other than Kodiak Combos if you’re interested in pursuing Sitka blacktail. Owner Jeff Peterson has the knowledge and experience to put you on the right track, while attending to the smallest details and preparations to ensure the trip is every bit as fulfilling as your dreams. Add his ability to hook up with Old Harbor’s thick population of king salmon, halibut and ling cod, and I can’t wait to return.” — Guy J. Sagi, Editor in Chief, NRA Free Hunters

“Kodiak Island is a place every angler and hunter should visit, and Old Harbor is the quintessential Alaska. The people are friendly, the fish and deer are plentiful, and the scenery is nothing less than breathtaking. Kodiak Combos is the ultimate cast and blast.” — Mark Nelson, Cabela’s Internet Communications Manager

“Native guide, local knowledge make for the best fishing I ever had” — Gregg PattersonESPN Outdoors<

“With Jeff Peterson as our guide, we killed a dandy Sitka Blacktail deer in the morning and caught salmon later that day. Jeff knows his way around Kodiak and helped us have a fantastic trip. — Gregg Gutchow,North American Hunter Magazine

“Of the hundreds of guides I’ve fished with, native guide Jeff Peterson knew his home waters better than anyone I’ve encountered…I highly recommend Peterson’s fishing operation for anyone who’s interested in world-class fishing for chinook, halibut and other Alaska saltwater species, especially if they are looking for a true Alaskan trip without any crowds. During my trip in 2001 Peterson’s knowledge of the area enabled me to earn four IGFA world records with a fly rod! Thanks Jeff!” — John L., N.W. editor of Western Outdoors, field editor for Alaska AnglerFish On Alaska & owner/operator of

“Unbelievable fishing with non-stop action. Old Harbor is a very special place for the serious sport fisherman.” — Josh Taves, former Oakland Raiders

“My first hunting and fishing experience with Kodiak Combos was incredible. I shot a nice buck by 9 am, reached my limit on Sea Ducks within a few hours, and then we headed out to catch Kings. Jeff’s knowledge of the local waters is unmatched in Kodiak, and I soon landed 2 beautiful Kings within a few hours. This was a triple combo in a single day!

I had no previous big game experience or fishing expertise. If you are looking for a unique and personalized hunting and fishing trip, regardless of your skill level, Kodiak Combos is your best possible choice.”
