    Cruising to Sitka, Ketchikan and Juneau in late September. Interested in shore fishing. Suggestion

    I think you’ll do great by the hatchery in July. You’ll be deep into the king salmon season.

    Cruising to Sitka, Ketchikan and Juneau in late September. Interested in shore fishing. Suggestion

    Fished Sitka and it was almost a silver salmon per cast. Used a black and gold mepps spinner with a salmon egg on the swivel. 5 fish in 30 minutes. Also caught several dolly Varden. Fish were jumping all along the coast in Juneau. Shore fishing was hot as I didn’t see a beach were someone...

    Need 1-2 people for a Friday 9/13 Tuna Trip

    Ketchikan for 3 days and Sitka for 2. Will also be in Juneau as our jumping off point but don’t expect to fish, though I hear the Dolly Varden are fun to catch just outside of town. Flight leaves today 2:45 pm for Seattle then to Juneau.

    Need 1-2 people for a Friday 9/13 Tuna Trip

    Would have loved to go as I only try to fish midweek. Leaving that day for a week of Alaska Salmon, Halibut and trout fishing. Let me know if you need someone end of the month or an early October trip. Freezer is still full but I don’t mind catching for someone else.

    Going out 9/2/19 from SD any intel would help!

    20lb. Fluorocarbon to mono to braid. Change your fluoro after each fish. Fluoro doesn’t return to original shape after being stretched. Kinked line won’t get bit. Size 4 hooks. Change your bait if it doesn’t swim hard. I wouldn’t leave it for more than 5 minutes. Less on a sport boat.

    Fished 8/28/19 on the Fortune

    Fished on Wednesday aboard the Fortune. Fishing was consistent as long as you used 20 pound test and a size 4 hook. We fished among what looked like the entire fleet. Found a kelp patty at first light and we’re on Yellowfin quickly. For some reason when we drifted away from the patty and...

    Personal Watercraft (Jetski) Recommendations?

    What do you think of the older 2 stroke Yamaha 1200 suv? It’s a 4 man watercraft and purportedly the largest watercraft ever made. I believe it’s almost 5 ft wide and 14ft long. I’ve seen them used offshore elsewhere.
