    Naw - say it ain't so. That would mean we are getting on into spring and that would mean that summer is soon to pass........not yet I say!

    Time sure flies when you are working and can't go out into the ocean - and it is picking up speed like a downhill train the older I get.

    Went birdwatching with the wife and kids this morn and saw a whole slew of mew gulls with surf scoters in the salt around Spring Creek in Seward. The gulls were feeding on what sure appeared to be hoolies, still aways out from Salmon Creek and Ressurection River, but not far.

    Ran the first trip up 20 mile yesterday night. was on the river from 5-9:30 pm. Ran up to the fork and turned around as there was freezing rain heavy winds, and VERY cold. Still snow right up to the water's edge up river.

    Eagle n Gulls are staged, but no hooligan yet. They are late. I dipped my honey hole for about 10 minutes, not a single lil fishy.

    Bear tracks on the river, was hoping for some fresh bear meat n lard, but no bear sighted.

    Lot of new sweepers, and the river has changed a bit.

    Tried the Kenai beach last night for 45 minutes with the big gillnet.
    Zip zero nada.

    Yes, as of 5/30 the hooligan are running strong around Twentymile on Turnagain. I filled a 5 gallon bucket and 40 quart cooler in about half an hour at 2 hours before the listed low tide for Anchorage. I was in the salt and the current had a nice ebb going.

    Be aware that today is the end of the salt water season so make sure you are in fresh water tomorrow. You can dip in fresh water until June 15, I believe.
