    Default PWS Fishing Recap

    Made the annual trip to Valdez for some shrimp and fish. Didn't go out to far so the halibut fishing was a little slow but we did manage to pick up a few small ones. Plenty of rock fish and reds around and we had a few silvers following the jigs, we hooked a couple but nothing to the boat. Shrimping seemed to be a little more hit and miss than it did last year - might just have been the 3 fewer pots - but we did get a decent amount for the freezer.

    We did meet up with some good friends on the water and had some great weather and it doesn't get much better than that. Overall it was another great trip to the sound - It just wasn't long enough.

    Even during the years I commercial fished PWS, I was never out there long enough, it is a special place to say the least.
    I keep trying to convince my wife that living on a boat in PWS/SE for a period of time is a great idea but she does not agree

    Awesome! One of my fav pieces of water to fish. Spent many of days on that sound commercial fishing as a kid. Guess it kind of stuck.

    Looks like a great way to spend some time with good friends.
