Silver salmon fishing has improved slightly the past few days with huge minus tides sweeping some of these great fighting fish into the islands. We’ve had four boats running lately and it seems like at least one will hit the jackpot every day and grab an entire limit of silver salmon with the other three somewhere around a dozen or so fish for the day, while losing or missing at least that many. When a school of snappy silver salmon passes under the boat doubles, trips, and quad hookups can happen fast!

Debbie and Denny Adams from Athens, Georgia are pictured below with “Lady Lucks” 28 pound king salmon. Much of the better king salmon fishing has occurred on the ocean recently with some trophy class fish being taken at the usual haunts. There definitely aren’t great numbers of king salmon out there right now, but those that are willing to work the better king salmon areas have a shot at the fish of a lifetime.

Denny holds up the 50 pound halibut that Debbie hooked on a salmon rod after bagging her first king salmon.

John Morris from Virginia bagged this great ling cod after he and the gang aboard the Rover caught their limits of silver salmon. From the sounds of things they were having a ball…we could hear them a quarter mile away hooting and hollering. These guys get it!

After a mixed bag of silver salmon, king salmon, halibut, and yelloweye for the first two and a half days we decided to target some bigger halibut with the heavy gear the last afternoon. With one minute left on the halibut clock Dick’s rod doubled over with this 70 pound flattie. Dick calmly reeled this great halibut up to top off he and the rest of the crews fish boxes with some fish and chips. He and wife Nancy are pictured below.

Capt. Kim pulled in just as we were leaving and after several drifts Ryan Wieder from Vancouver, Washington slammed the hook home on this 156 pound to finish a great day of fishing. Ryan and rest of the crew on the Sea Hunt were also lucky enough to get a full limit of silver salmon first thing in the morning. Nice work guys and thank you again for the engagement card and gift!
