    Unfortunately I am running around town getting ready for a charter this Sat., so I'm drooling over the weather/water wishing I was. If you get this I would be fishing off of the Diamond Gulch area---about 70 ft. of water with herring about 40 ft. down. That's where I have caught all mine lately. I also heard that the south Anchor marker has been very good lately as well. Good luck and let us know how you do.

    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!

    What do you do with clients on bad water days? Head east?

    That's a really tough one to answer and really depends on a lot of different factors. If the wind is blowing strong anywhere from east to southeast it's going to be pretty rough just about anywhere west of the Spit, but over on the other side (Anisom Pt./Yukon/etc.) it might be protected and very fishable. If the wind is out of the west and blowing 4 ft. wind waves onto the Spit it's going to be pretty bad anywhere you go in the Bay proper, but if you can make it across to the other side it might be nice inside the islands. This sounds pretty obvious, but the more time you spend out there the better you get to know where things are going to be fishable with various weather patterns.

    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

    Yeah, it's always hard to really predict where the water is going to be bad. As you're probably well aware the wind and wave direction can change at the drop of a hat. And combine that with a tidal drop of 28 ft. on a bad day and all bets are off! LOL! I was in "the islands" fishing one day and started back across to the Spit and everything was fine for about the first half mile or so and then abruptly ran into 6 to 7 footers. And those spaces like between Cohen and Yukon can be just like a wind tunnel.

    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.

    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!!!
