you are killing me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
either you stayed out all night or got skunked??????
c'mon, wheres the report?????
We got sk.....
Didn't catch a king
A few cod only
However I did get sun burned hehe
I saw a friend down on the dock earlier today and she caught and released one king about 17 lbs. off the Bluffs this morning. I'll be out there tomorrow with a client.
Out of Seward Thursday afternoon, overnighted in SW PWS, for the most part perfect weather, both ways across Blying sound was at 3600 RPM with a GPS speed of 31-2 mph, some roll, otherwise real smooth. Fishing lots of 8 to 10 lb rockfish, caught 2 days limit, Lingcod where everywhere, released all of them ... but it was not easy to unhook the two big ones both were at least 4 ft long and big around. Still not summer, a very cold at night, ran a cabin heater all night. Early Friday ran into some winds on the east side of Montague about 25-30 mph with 3 to 4 foot seas for a few hours .... then it magically disappeared and back to near calm. From Cape Fairfield east there were Humpback whales everywhere .... great to be back out on the water.
Pretty decent day out on K-Bay today despite the "3 ft. seas" the morning marine forecast was calling for. It actually got almost glassy about mid day. Put 4 halibut in the boat in the middle of the bay and then a 9 lb. king off the Bluffs. Getting back to the harbor from the Bluffs was the brutal part with 3 ft. wind waves coming directly at us. OUCH!
Just an interesting aside. The morning marine forecast for K-Bay today was for "NE wind increasing to 20 kt this morning. Seas 3 ft. rain." At 10:15 the wind at the end of the Spit was WSW at 2.9 kts. and I sure haven't seen any rain yet. In fact if I wasn't dead from a 14 hour day yesterday I think I'd be out fishing. Looks pretty nice out there from what I can see.
Yea I've fished behind the islands in poor water also but the last 1/4 mile as you go past Cohen can sure get rough. We had good three footers till Cohen and then easily hit some 6 footers right there. Maybe circling up from chinapoot would be calmer. Have you fished bear cove for winters? I heard the cruise there often
Bear Cove and along the rock faces outside the cove can be great for kings at times. The biggest problem I've had there are the typical afternoon west wind that blows up often times during the summer. You get down there and fish all day and when you head back you're driving directly into 3 ft. wind waves all the way to the harbor. That can be painful.
Cape Ann Images? I spent my summers in Gloucester where my mother was born, on Long Beach. Know it?
That's Glousta' ain't it ??? Been there on my visits and boat hunt, the new boat came from Rockport moored at the Granite Pier. I really like that part of the world, real fishing town and they take good care of the commercial guys there. I like eating my way through there every time we go back. Lobstah pie and fried clam bellies are my favorites!!!
