The lodges that offer self guided fishing include a skiff for salmon, halibut, and bottom fish. Is it normal to catch halibut and rock fish or is a guided trip necessary? Either way POW sounds great, just want to know what to expect. Experienced in saltwater fishing, know the limitations of my small boat, lots of time fish are available but are unreachable. Planning a late July or early Aug 2011 trip. Any tackle, methods, lodges info appreciated.
