Port Lions Lodge Team
Captain James Stegall
Captain James grew up fishing and hunting in Texas with his dad and brother. He moved to Alaska in 1981 where he began fishing the Kenai Peninsula both in the rivers and the salt water. In 1995 James purchased his first salt water vessel and within a few years was running a very busy charter business out of Seward Alaska. James also owned an X-ray sales and service business in Anchorage. James found the Port Lions Lodge was for sale when he was there looking at the Armstrong Catamaran “Lara Beth” and within about six months he sold his X-ray business and Seward Charter business and was the new owners of Port Lions Lodge. James holds a US Coast Guard Master of 100 Tons license, serves on the Alaska Charter Association Board of Directors, and spends his non fishing and hunting time fighting the allocation battle for halibut. James is also a Transporter licensed under the Alaska Big Game Board as well as an Assistant Hunting Guide.
