We are Luke and Kayla Wilson.
As a lifelong Bristol Bay fisherman and wife of a lifelong Bristol Bay fisherman, participating together in the world’s largest salmon run is an integral part of our life. We met at Bemidji State University in Northern Minnesota back in 2011 and not long after, we started fishing together in Alaska- Luke teaching me the trade, just how his dad did when he was a young boy. We not only commercial fish the largest salmon fishery, but we also subsistence fish, as a means to put the freshest sockeye salmon on our family’s table. We can’t wait to pass down our love of the fishery to our children and future generations, as was done to us.
ABOUT HIGH TIDE FISHERIES
When we aren’t fishing side by side in Alaska, we spend the rest of the year in Minnesota. We started noticing our friends and family rarely incorporated salmon into their diet, and upon more observation we realized there was a lack of fresh Bristol Bay Sockeye on the market in Duluth and Northern Minnesota.
That is when we decided to create High Tide Fisheries, not only did we want to sell fresh, sustainable sockeye salmon, we wanted to sell our salmon. All of the salmon we sell is caught by us, hand delivered fresh to our small processor, and then flown to Minnesota. We know where our salmon is every step of the journey and we work with only the best processors and shippers, to ensure that when we hand deliver your fish to you, you are receiving the absolute highest quality salmon on the market. That is our promise, from our family to yours.
