* July 11th Southeast Alaska Fishing Report

Posted on July 12th, 2011 by . Filed under Uncategorized .


King salmon fishing has remained very good here in Craig, Alaska this past week and the silver salmon fishing seems to be getting a little better with every day. Most of the really good fishing has been occurring outside of Noyes Island and a few fish are coming out of the islands. Spotty weather kept us off the ocean earlier last week and once we got back out there we found plenty of king salmon biting. Rumors of a few king salmon in the 30’s and 40’s from yesterday and I’m sure it won’t be long before someone bags up a big bruiser in the 50 plus pound range out there.

Here’s Nancie Wilder and husband Ron with her low 20’s king salmon from last week. Most of the king salmon here have been running in the 15 to 25 pound range lately. These fish will tear you up on light mooching tackle. Fun stuff!

Dave Allan was lucky enough to bag this 36 1/2 inch halibut on the last day of his trip here in Craig. The Alaska Department of Fish and Wildlife requires all halibut over 37 inches be released aboard charter vessels in Southeast Alaska this year. Hopefully these regulations will help to rebuild the halibut stocks.  Legal halibut have been easy to come by this summer.

Brothers Dave and Greg caught ling cod that were identical twins measuring 39 1/2 inches. They had a $20 bet on the biggest bottomfish and it would have been a tie but Greg’s fish gacked up a good sized rockfish just before we weighed them. Dave’s fish weighed 22 pounds and Greg’s weighed 21 1/2 pound after losing the rockfish. One of several funny stories on this trip and thankfully this one didn’t involve me : )

And here’s a couple more Alaskan salmon fishing videos recorded with the GoPro video camera I have mounted on the charter boat. It’s raw unedited video and you just never know what might happen when I turn the camera on:

Looking forward to more great fishing here in Craig this coming week. We’re looking for that first big push of silvers any day now!
