Aug 9th Fall Storm
Our fall storm came early this year. 40 kt winds with heavy rain. We got into Juneau ok on Saturday, was a bit rough going in but we made it with no problems. Then the storm hit on Sunday and Sunday night. Allen Marine had a boat available on Monday the storm was still going early in the morning so we decided to push for an early afternoon departure. Lynn Canal was not great but we made it to Couverden and then Icy Strait was pretty good they sun even came out, Pt Adolphus to South Pass was really good water. The pass was ok cause we were on a flood tide. We got in around 4:00, did orientation and got ready to fish Tuesday morning. It is now 1:00pm, we have had one boat come back with almost a limit of Silvers, the Ocean is ok but still some very big swells. The forecast looks better for the rest of the week. Every once in a while Alaska reminds us that she is in charge and we just have to adapt and do the best we can.
