Aug 7 Weather Update

August 8, 2018

   Weather is a huge factor in fishing in Alaska.  2 weeks ago we had the flattest calmest water ever.  The past two days have been really the opposite.  30 kt winds with heavy rain.  https://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lat=58.03207999999995&lon=-136.1755504245076#.W2o6pC2ZOcZ

 

We have not been able to get out to Yakobi this week yet.  Fishing has mainly been around Three Hill and George Island, and on the other side of South Pass Shaw Islands and Dundas Bay.
