Took the Gringo out of Whittier first time ever. Had read lots about fishing in Whittier and figured I could at least find a few small Halibut, but no luck. It's a little hard with the Family on board, youngest being 2 y/o, to really get out and fish hard. Was at least expecting to find some wildlife, but seems other than 1 huge sealion and a ton of jumping salmon, there was nothing moving where I was. We made it all the way out by Perry Island and stopped a few places and caught a few Yelloweye and some quillbacks, but no butts. I got to say, it's a lot deeper out of Whittier than it is out of Seward. Looking forward to exploring some more and glad Ling season is finally open.
