The last couple of days have all about the variety for us. We even made a few drops on some rocky structure yesterday in search of a vermillion rockfish for one of our guests, Bob DeLong.

Here’s Jim Coe with the nice 33 pound king salmon he caught with us a couple days ago. There’s been a few larger Chinook showing up in our waters the last few days and we even got word of a 63 pounder being caught by another one of the lodge operations near Craig. Yowza! We ran into a couple of big schools of kings yesterday that tore us up before moving on. Fun stuff!

Chuck, Bob, Jeff, and Jim with a Tyee and some nice bottomfish to round out the day. Bob’s ling cod was about as close to the 45″ slot limit as you can get…what a hawg! We also caught plenty of silver salmon on this particular day.

This is the red Irish lord sculpin that will sometimes latch onto a cut plug herring. They have spectacular colors for a lowly old bullhead. Very cool fish!

Fishing remains excellent here in Craig, Alaska. We’ve got great numbers of silver salmon around and the king numbers are starting to rebuild again.

Thanks again for stopping by!
