    You should have been able to get some rock fish around Aialik. I've never had the success on halibut that others have reported, but it might be because I was trying it the wrong time of year. I did quickly limit out on yellow eye, and since I was fishing before July 1, had to let alot of nice ling cod go. You should try the 50 fathom line around the points of the bays/coves. You might want to try day harbor for halibut.

    The narrows are great for silvers, early to mid July on into August, you're just too early for silvers.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

    I've had good luck with halibut out from Hub Rock in Aialik about 300' deep. They were mostly 15-30 lbs, occasionally larger. Also about the same depth in Johnstone Bay to the east. Good luck.
