* August 15th Craig, Alaska Fishing Report

Posted on August 15th, 2011 by . Filed under Uncategorized .


Our guests have experienced mostly sunny skies and flat calm seas here for the past week. If only that would last another week, as it looks like the rain and wind are descending upon us again here in Craig. With plenty of islands to hide behind I’m sure we’ll find a kelp bed or three to hunker down next to. The furnaces are fueled up on the boats and we’re ready to roll!

Fishing has been great for silvers and we’re still picking up a few king salmon in the mix. Keeper size chicken halibut have been easy to come by and so have slot limit ling cod, yelloweye, and black sea bass. Calm seas definitely help in that department! With 8 to 10 foot seas forecast for our next group arriving this afternoon we will likely have to work a lot harder for bottomfish.

Here’s Trent, Eric, Trevor, and Eric from Lynden, WA with a fine catch of silvers, halibut, sea bass, and a keeper ling cod from a few days ago.

Big Mike caught this 30# yelloweye rockfish on a pipe jig while working a rockpile in search of ling cod a couple days back. It’s easily the biggest yelloweye I’ve ever seen.

Barry Dikeman caught this 250 pound-ish halibut while aboard the Makai with Capt. Troy Thain. We’ve had at least half a dozen more large halibut in the 70 to 250 pound range released between the Sea Hunt, Makai, and Polar Bear this past week.

I’ve always posted these fishing reports to give upcoming customers a hint of what’s in store for them on their upcoming trip and to let prospective customers know that we’re still kicking here in Craig. I only with I had more time to post more photos and videos here, as I know all of you enjoy seeing your photos here. I’ve been recording quite a few more GoPro videos and will upload them as I have time towards the end of the season. Just three more groups and we’ll be done here in Craig. My how this incredible fishing season has flown by!

Until next week…good fishing!
