If you are looking for a personalized sportfishing experience in Alaska, you don’t need to look any further. Action Alaska Sportfishing is owned and operated by Capt. Cody Loomis and his wife Marlie. We are a small charter operation that owns and operates just one boat. Over 90% of our bookings every year are repeat customers, and they keep coming back because of our commitment to the highest standards available in the sportfishing industry.
Cody Loomis, and his wife, Marlie, have lived in Sitka since 2006. Cody was born and raised in Southeast Alaska, and is a 3rd generation life long Alaskan. He met Marlie in Elfin Cove when they were both working at a Sport Fishing lodge. Marlie was also born and raised in Southeast Alaska, and is a 3rd generation Alaskan. Cody has been a saltwater fishing guide since 1998, and started working on his fathers charter boat in 1988 as a deckhand. He started his own saltwater fishing guide business in 2001. He has over 25 years of saltwater fishing experience and it shows when you go fishing with him. Marlie is a kindergarten teacher in Sitka, and she takes the summers off to visit family and enjoy the natural beauty and bounty of Sitka with their two children, Grayson and Joy.
Action Alaska Sportfishing has one boat that we use for our fishing trips. If you book with us, you will fish with Cody on the “Kimshan”. The boat is a fully customized boat built from a 1972 Bertram 35. It is 35 feet long overall, and is 13 feet wide. The main fishing platform on the back deck is 16 feet by 13 feet. 6 anglers can fish comfortably with minimal tangles on this boat. It is powered by twin diesel Cummins engines that push the boat at a speedy 23 knot cruise, and provide a top speed of just over 30 knots. Cody purchased the boat out of Virginia, had it trucked to Seattle where it was loaded onto a barge and shipped to Sitka. The boat was then stripped completely to the bare hull, and rebuilt to Cody’s specifications. All structures were replaced with composite, fiberglass, aluminum, or stainless steel. It has a full walkaround flush deck, 6 feet 6 inches of headroom in the cabin, dual heat sources, a sit down electric flush head on deck, and many other custom features that make your fishing day more productive and comfortable. The boat also has a dry exhaust, meaning that the exhaust exits the boat roughly 13 feet above the waterline. When trolling or motor mooching you will never smell diesel exhaust. Cody also uses top of the line equipment. He has custom built hydraulic downriggers that enable him to effectively troll much deeper than any other charter boat in the state. The rods are either Seeker, G loomis, or TFO. You will also find that the reels are top notch with Accurate, Avet, and Shimano reels.
