Just wondering if some of the experts here can offer some advice on approaches and tactics for fishing strange waters. A group of us are going to Prince of wales island Thorne bay area in the first week of july. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.
We do plan on using a guide for one of the days as well.
Just wondering if you would be willing to share how you go about looking at unfamiliar waters. Do you get charts? What kind of things do you look for in structure on your finders? What depths are you looking for? How are you playing the tides? ETC...Any and all thoughts or insights would be appreciated.
We are not all total rookies. One member is an alaskan but with limited salt experience. I have 3 trips under my belt and the others are total rookies.
I know our host will offer plenty of areas and advice but I would like to learn as well.
I think that the normal plan would be to troll for kings first and then chase halibuts after.
Thanks again for the help.
