* Great Fishing and Great Weather!

The title of this post says it all. We’ve been blessed with some totally awesome fishing here this past week and the weather hasn’t let us down either. This summer is off to a great start!

Here’s a guy you’ve seen here quite a few times before. It’s Craig Kvam with yet another beautiful king salmon!

There’s been quite a few silvers around already, as well. This is a 17 pounder that Joe Williams caught fishing with Capt. Rafael a couple of days ago. Unreal to see a silver of this size this early in the season.

It’s always neat to see how far your king salmon will run on the line counter. This one burned off 460 feet of line before it ran out of gas.

Here’s Jeff “Buckethead” Bailey with his 44 1/2″ halibut that weighed 41 pounds. This one just made it under the 45″ slot.

The offshore bottomfishing has been awesome when we’ve gone out there. Here’s a huge ling cod that decided to hitch a ride to the surface on a sea bass. We already had our limit of lings and after some encouragement this big mamma drifted back into the depths.

Team “Slice and Dice” (Tim, Katie, and Maggie) with some nice kings from the other day. They do a great job of filleting and packaging our guests fish while they’re here in Craig.

Don’t forget Shannon…she’s also part of Team “Slice and Dice”!

The outlook for the weather looks great for another few days and we don’t see any reason why the great fishing won’t continue. There’s plenty of kings and silvers out there that are willing to chomp on a cut plug herring. Life is good!
