* July 29th Craig, Alaska Fishing Report

Posted on July 30th, 2011 by . Filed under Uncategorized .


Limits of both king and silver salmon were easy to come by here up until about three or four days ago in Craig, Alaska. Fishing is still good for both…just not the stupid salmon action that’s been spoiling us most of the summer.

Our guests that spend some time targetting king salmon are finding limits on a near daily basis and we’ve had 42 and 48 pound king salmon hit the dock this past week. The silver salmon fishing remains what I would call decent, with the four boats in our small fleet getting anywhere from a half a limit per day to full limits. It seems like few of the hatchery silvers are pushing into the islands from the Klawock Hatchery and hopefully that run continues to build. There seems to be a little gap in the silver run right now and we’re all hopeful that another push will come in headed for the hatchery.

We’ve been blasting offshore to catch our limits of chicken halibut and picking up a few nice sea bass, yelloweye, and ling cod while we’re out there. The pipe jigs that dad and I made two years ago continue to produce the most halibut bites of anything we drop over the side. The things really work!

Here’s Lester Surgener from Bakersfield, CA with his 48 pound king salmon from last week. He caught it with Capt. Kim aboard the Sea Hunt. Kim has been on a king salmon tear lately!

My dad, John Endsley, and his buddies Frank, Joe, and Paul with a limit of nice king salmon from the last day of their trip (yesterday). It’s sure nice to fish with pops and the rest of the guys up here in Alaska!

Here’s a great link to a weather cam here in Craig…courtesy of Nancie and Ron Wilder who visited us in early July.

Sorry…no new videos to upload with all this rain and wind we’ve been experiencing lately. It looks like the weather is going to calm down in a couple of days and I’ll bust out the GoPro camera again when it does.

Good fishing!
