    Default I'll start... any word on Pinks in Valdez?

    I'll start... any word on Pinks in Valdez?

    My step-boy wants to plan a long three day trip for when the Pinks hit Allison Point and the hatchery..

    I told him that I thought it was the middle of July, but I would ask the experts here to see if any fish from shore.

    Usually the 4th of July is a good kickoff weekend. That being said, they were a week late last year.

    Dennis,

    Thanks for the quick feed back.

    You remember "Mikey", so....

    We sure are going to miss going out with you on the Dodger.

    Threads don't move the fish any faster. Test net last week near the hatchery retrieved 1. There are some jumping out past Potato Point but still light.

    I will be visiting my cousin in Valdez Aug 7th to Aug 16th. He says we should be able to go out and whack some halibut, lings, yellow eye and maybe catch the last part of the pinks and the start of the silvers. What do you guy think about fishing that time of the year I will be there? thanks

    Dave, thanks... but it's hard to till Mikey to cool it for a few weeks

    Do your time, that's a great time to be out halibut fishing, and silvers, ect. If I wasn't moose hunting, I'd be there myself in August.
    May still get there, if tag out first day.

    See a large school coming in from Galina Bay to Bly Reel. Killer whales where jumping out of the water going after them. They should be in Valdez Harbor in about a week.

    and I'll touch base with you later
