    From the latest Weekly sportfishing report:

    (I consider 19 rod-hours to be pretty darn good! 136 rod-hours sucks azz tho)

    Grit,
    I am at 50% of normal for the year so far. Still waiting for the big surge. As far as your boat I would stay within a safe distance from Haines or Skagway. It has been a windy year.
