* Coho Chaos Well Underway Here in Craig!

Posted on August 15th, 2014 by . Filed under Uncategorized .

Even though there’s still a few king salmon around most of our attention lately has been on the oustanding silver salmon fishing that’s been going on. The coho have been on the move quite a bit, but once we land on them the action has been fast and the fish seem to be a little bigger than normal this year. We’ve already seen quite a few silvers in the 14 to 17 pound range and as the month of August ticks on we should start seeing some of those late summer bruisers that are so darn fun to catch.

Here’s Jim Farr from Phoenix, Arizona with a dandy he caught with us a few days ago.

There’s a few kings left out there and truth be told…I can’t help but drop into some of the king spots trying to pick up one last late-summer slab. It worked a few days ago and well…I just can’t get enough of that!

Thanks for stopping by and good fishing to you!

* Craig, Alaska Fishing Report

Posted on August 5th, 2014 by . Filed under Uncategorized .

It’s been a while since my last report but it’s not because fishing hasn’t been great. Fishing has been outstanding since my last report and we’ve had a lot of happy customers leave Craig since then.

The silver fishing has been excellent with myself and the rest of the boats we run with getting limits on a daily basis and there’s been plenty of kings around for the last month. Most days if you target kings you can put a limit of them in the boat. It’s August 4th today and both myself and our guests aboard the Makai had limits of kings, silvers, and halibut. Just when things seem to be getting a little on the scratchy side a new batch of fish washes in, which is a good thing!

We’ve mostly been fishing the outside of Noyes Island with a few forays to northern waters and some fishing inside the islands. Overall the fishing has been great this entire summer!

Here’s a few pics for you…

Pappa John Endsley with a nice 41 inch ling cod that hit one of his famous pipe jigs.

A shot of a halibut tornado at one of our halibut spots offshore. Kinda hard to miss when there’s that many fish down there!

Joe Raniero was just here and landed this nice 26 pound king salmon aboard the Makai with Capt. Troy.

Nancie Wilder caught this beautiful 43 pound king salmon with Capt. Rob on the Polar Bear. Nice fish Nancie!

Ron and Nancie Wilder with a couple of yelloweye rockfish that they caught while they were here.

Rob Dieda landed this great 43 1/2 inch halibut that just snuck under the 44 inch slot limit for halibut. We’ve had quite a few nice keepers right at the lower limit for halibut…and of course some over the limit that we’ve released. All in all halibut fishing has been excellent this summer in our waters!

The salmon and halibut fishing continues to be great here and I’ll post another report when we come back up for air again. Thanks for stopping by folks!
