This great group got to experience Alaska at its finest. Winds, rain, dodging debris field from a landslide . We prevailed and got limits of halibut. Fell short on cohos the last day but still put 17 in the box.
Hit the cohos pretty good first thing. Got 17 and ran for Hali. Got those and and swung into seine for the last king we needed. Got that first drift. Ran down to Haida and got 7 coho in no time at all to finish that limit. Then it was off to the rockfish pile for some bass and 2 lingcod. Productive day, back to dock at 1:30. All fish immediately cut by yours truly and vacuum packed and in the freezer by 4pm. At larger operations your fish will sit out for hours and hours before being processed.
Chased the wrong coho bite and came up short on them. Got a 100# GAF Hali. Let a 250+ go. Same spot we got great keepers in a few days ago. Now it’s full of big fish. Back at it tomorrow with this great group of guys.
