Let's cover the weather first. Last Friday we had a big storm it rolled in on Friday night and was here all day Saturday. On Saturday morning on our way back to Juneau we rounded Point Adolphus and we ran into some good size waves, maybe 6-7 foot. One of them rocked the big 78’ boat so hard that the fish boxes shifted off the pallets, I thought the inside passage was supposed to be calm all the time? Our summer is officially over! We are now into a shower every hour or s
We had much cooler temps this week. Was very nice to have it a bit cooler. The water was not flat calm like the last two weeks, but it was not to rough to go where we wanted. The big story this week was the lack of Silver Salmon. Not sure what happened but this week was much slower than last week. Still tons of Pink Salmon. This week was good and bad for halibut. We had a couple of boats that had a hard time finding good halibut and several boats that hit the jack pot.

The Pinks are really starting to pour thru the pass. I was in the laundry chute the other day and the Sea Lions were in a
This week the open ocean was very calm, we had several reports of total glass like water from Cape Spencer to Yakobi. Very little rain. Friday was supposed to be windy and rain, but it was not to bad. The Kings are still slower than normal. I was hoping this week would be the big change from last week. We had 5 on one day, the biggest one was caught by Jerry and Theresa. It weighed in at 18 lbs, Jerry always guts and ices his Kings so I am guessing it was over 21 lbs. I
