King salmon fishing has remained good here in Craig since our last report and the silvers are starting to come in the last few days. We’ve seen good numbers of silvers at Roller Bay the last couple of days and our guests aboard the Sea Hunt caught the first limit of silvers yesterday. The action isn’t full speed on the silvers yet, but I would imagine the big push isn’t too far away.
Here’s Jake from Long Island, New York with a chunky king salmon he caught aboard the Polar Bear a couple of days ago.
Jake, Will, Bill, and John from New York with nice limits of yelloweye and king salmon. They also got limits of chicken halibut that didn’t make the photo. John and Jake both released halibut that were in the release slot. I estimated them to be around 50 and 80 pounds…the guys had a kick reeling them up.
Bob, Robert, Jim, and Mustafa caught the first limit of silvers for the summer. Mustafa isn’t pictured. The silvers are already pretty chunky and we’ve seen a few around the ten plus pound mark already. Should be a great summer for silvers!
The Connors and Hine groups show up today and we’re looking forward to another round of great fishing days here in Craig, Alaska. There’s been some downright huge kings being caught out there the last couple weeks. The only problem is the areas they are holding in are polluted with sea lions so we’ve been avoiding them altogether. I might start spending a little time at those trophy spots though….it’s kind of hard to stay away when the guys are rolling in with 40 and 50 pound kings : )
