A group of us kayakers got together to see if we couldn't muster up some halibut and kings. We were disappointed to hear the AP Calcutta derby had been canceled...only to find out it was going on the same day later. A HUGE thank you to HomerDave and his water taxi service for being one of the sponsors.
Fishing has been slow but its hard to judge if its slow for everyone or not when you deploy only one rod off a kayak.
Saturday was a blow out with snow falling sideways on our camp. Three of us tried to get out. Two succeeded early. I tried in what seemed like better conditions but all I managed was some spectacular wipeout pictures.
Sunday the group gets out and manages to fish from about 9 am to 2pm. Between 8 kayaks (not all fished the full 5 hours) we managed 2 halibut and a king. I lost a nice halibut of maybe 50 pounds right next to the kayak. So the fish are there but it seemed slow. Not much bait on the sonar even. The king had small sandlances in it.
So here's a few pics. For more detail and a lot more pictures you can go to : http://guidesak.blogspot.com/2013/05...k-classic.html
