    Default What to do this weekend?

    I'm a pretty dedicated cook inlet fisherman, but wouldn't mind exploring something new.

    I'll be fishing out of a kayak so my range is somewhat limited. Although I will have a sail but according to the forecasts winds will be minimal! Figures

    I do want to catch fish though.

    What's everyone else gonna do?

    I am taking the wife over to halibut cove. I have a friend who lets us tie up at his dock over there whenever we want.
    Most likely plan is to hunt for some rockfish and whatever we can find in areas where the tide isn't going to kill us.
    I want to hit some of my good butt spots but those wicked tides are more then I want to mess with.
    I do wonder how long I can fish with my new 25oz jig but -5.7 is just too much to mess with. Might just hit a spot or two during slack tide.
    We might grab a bite at the tidepool in Seldovia if we find ourselves out that way.

    Matt, how do u know the current speed? Seems like it would be a lot faster than 4. Throw an anchor out in that and your boat makes a heck of a wake.

    I have navionics software. There is a couple of bouyies that you can click on that predict current speeds.

    Seem to be a few Kings being caught along the bluffs down South of Deep Creek.

    Not sure if we will hit the lagoon or not. We will be there in August though as we have the lagoon overlook cabin booked.
    The plan for now is to hit some rockfish spots in Eldred passage area Sadie Cove and Tutka bay. Might try a spot a coworker recommended near Pogi depending on weather and tidal action out there.
    I just hope the weather cooperates but if not the cove itself is a lot of fun and very scenic.

    Matt, why not roll for Seward, and try using that sail? Launch across the bay and work your way along the coast towards Thumb Cove? There are a few sockeye nosing in, no big numbers, and the occassional King....Once you get to the entrance to Thumb you have the option for bottom fish (Halibut, small rockfish). There's even 2 Forest Service Cabins in the cove as well as a sweet beach for tent camping.

    Or launch from Lowell point and work your way out to Caines head, with similar options.

    I certainly am hoping that is the case! Keep spreading that around.
