August 6th Week
Weather is the top story this week. 70 + degrees for temperatures. Flat calm open ocean water all week!! Very possible that this has been the best weather week in all the years I have been in Alaska. The Fairweather Mountains have been visible all week, just unreal to see those every day!
Halibut fishing has been great this week. Our Chef Jake had some family visiting and he took them out in front of George Island and caught a 55 lb halibut. The biggest for the week was caught by Steve from Seattle. It weighed in at 209.2 lbs. Tara and Tom did really good also they came in with several over 100 lbs. Steve & Trudy got four over 100 lbs.
This is the year of the COHO! The Silvers are just amazing, and they are just now starting to get size to them. We had some really nice ones this past week. We have had limits caught in front of Three Hill, and also down at Yakobi. They do not seem to be deep above 40'. Still many pinks out there also. What a week!!
