The boats have excellent electronics. Which include a Lowrance HDS-5 GPS fish finder/Chart plotter which also helps reveal underwater threats. It is also integrated with a Lowrance VHF radio that includes a "panic button" that broadcasts an SOS including GPS coordinates in case of emergency.
Port Frederick is fantastic body of water to find seafood. Unlike Icy Strait which rapidly goes from flat calm to scary, Port Frederick is relatively sheltered. It is generally a pretty calm body o water that contains all species of Salmon, Halibut, Spot Prawns, In many respects it is a lot "like a lake on the ocean"...
The Icy Strait Lodge rents 18.5' Smokercraft Phantom boats. We currently have 3 boats. All have Yamaha 4-stroke outboard motors with 2 having 70 hp and 1 a 90 hp motor. They are very efficient and effective for fishing our world class Salmon and Halibut grounds. They comfortably seat 4 adults and have all required safety gear.
