* Hot Silver Fishing Continues in Craig, Alaska

It seems as though just about everywhere we go lately there’s at least a few silvers to be caught and some of the better spots have been really hot. Mooching cut plug herring in a swarm of silver salmon is a thrill that you’ll never forget. One second they’re going this way, the next you think you lost it, and seconds later they are jumping on the other side of the boat. Such is silver fishing in Craig, Alaska!

Here’s the Lynden boys after a great day of fishing in Craig, Alaska with Prince of Wales Sportfishing.

Bob Reed caught this 44 3/4 inch ling cod aboard the Polar Bear the other day. Multiple measurements confirmed that this was indeed a keeper within the 30 to 45 inch slot limit. Nice one Bob!

And then lucky Bob followed it up with an awesome 36 pound king salmon that went totally berserk…thrashing all over the surface before falling to the net. There’s still a few of these big dudes around to keep things interesting!

Bob Tessier with a chunky silver salmon that he caught on a morning bite off Noyes Island.

Outdoor writer Dave Vedder caught a ton of fish while he was here. The one that bit this herring eluded him however : )

We’ve had some windy conditions off and on for the last week which have prevented us from spending a ton of time on the ocean. Nothing major…just a little sloppy on the ocean. Luckily there’s plenty of cohos in the islands and we’ve found some halibut in protected waters. Halibut fishing just off the coast has been decent, however, and on most days we’ve been able to get limits of chicken halibut fairly quickly. On calm days, well, the skies the limit!
