    Default Only 1 week to fish!!!

    I am working on the slope and I will only have a week off to fish.( The weekend of may 19th) So here's what I would like. I live in Anchorage and would like to know of the best bets for me and the family to catch some fish. Big, small, ugly, tasty it dosn't matter as I just need to get my line in the water. Any info will be great as I will not have enough time to try more than a one place. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Motorboatn,
    With your luck and fishing skill i would say your best bet to get some fish would be at Carrs or Fred Meyers. You may also try the Sushi buffet of Tudor. HAHAHAHAHA Good luck

    Kings will be showing at homer and around deep creek. people are also pulling in some butts around homer. You can always run to montague or south knight for some halibut. There is a king run south montague you can get into. I'm gonna try to go down there this weekend but this work thing is killing me. lots o' shrimping in the sound. good places to hang out with your family and don't forget about rock fish just about everywhere. good luck.

    that picture is of captain cave man. It also looks like a "hairy testical with arms and legs". So I hope that it does not resemble JMH. Can't you two play nice in the sand box? Lets all go fishing.

    personally i think by may 19th we will be hearing of kings being caught. maybe even before a silver (haha remember last year?) you did not mention if you have a boat or not. if not id say ship creek or eklutna tailsrace will be showing kings and if you do have a boat the mouth of the little su, deshka or alexander. itll be early of coarse but if you only have one weekend you better hit it hard!
    Reminder the Mat Su King derby starts May 20th

    Default I do have a boat!!!

    Cool, I might head north. Just depends on the weather. I know homer better than I know the valley but If I don't go I will never learn.
    Thanks for the info

    Well, last year a king was caught around the 19th in Ship Creek. I heard of one being caught this last weekend, but you know how that is.

    I think Homer would be best as it gets the first Kings. Also boatn you can go to the spit, cast off the beach towards the pilons and you will catch fish period,100%. It will only be Pacific Cod, Yellowfin sole, sculpins and maybe just maybe a small halibut. Still you for sure will catch something and so will the kids. Throw some bait on a small hook and wait for the bite.

    Are you running a jet or a prop on your boat?

    Default Thanks guys

    I run a prop.

    Also on the spit idea, I can't belive that I didn't think of that. I used to fiah there when I was a kid. You always caught fish. Never a halibut though. Anyways thanks for all the info. Hope there weather holds out.

    If you intend to run the Big Su with a prop it would be a good idea to call the landing and ask if it is safe to run it before you drive up that way. They will tell you if the river is to shallow. Last spring there was alot of shallow water. If you hear people talking about launching off the end of the dike and not the normal launch its a good idea to wait.

    Default Ok

    I will keep that in mind.

    My guess is that if the weather holds out I will be going to homer.
