June 23rd Fishing Update
Wow what a week we just had! The word for the week is HOT! Very hot conditions! Calm in the mornings a bit windy in the afternoons. No rain!! And the next 10 days show no rain! One day there were 15 king salmon that were brought in! No limits of Silvers but many were caught, pinks were less than Silvers but still very greatful to get them. Flying over Lynn Canal right now looks like glassy water ski weather. When it is this warm in Juneau the open ocean is normally cooler so fog is the result. It will normally burn off but I expect lots of fog this week. We saw good Halibut fishing this week a few boats saw great halibut fishing! One boat landed three over 100 lbs! Also lots of rock fish and ling cod! This group had a high skill level! Very good fishermen this week! The yellow Stabi craft was fished this week by one of our guests Jerry. He seemed to like it. Said it was good in waves did not bang you to bad. The biggest problem he had was pulling an 80 lb halibut over the gunnel. Pretty good problem to have if you want my opinion! The staff deserve an atta boy!! They are working well as a team. And having fun while they work. I had many compliments about the staff today on our trip to Juneau. We had halibut caught on the inside this week! We’ve seen salmon jumping nearly everywhere. The sea lions are on the rock now in big numbers! The big July 1st King Salmon opener starts tomorrow with the troller fleet. Looking forward to next week!
