    Default Kenai reds, any word?

    For those that hit the beach this weekend, how were the numbers? Just wondering how they are building.

    Was dipping from a boat today. Very slow. Buddy was out yesterday, also very slow. Saw very small numbers (and we seemed to be doing better than some others... not saying much) at high tide this morning and then it went completely dead. Off the river by late morning. Hopefully bigger numbers coming for those of you who can get down there when they finally really come in. Good luck.

    South beach all day with 3 of us, 4 reds.
    Even a jackass won't stumble on the same stone twice.

    Fished north beach from 530-730. Caught 7 and lost 2. Most people having similar luck. They're coming!

    Fished north beach Sat and Sun.

    Sat morning outgoing-14 fish in 2.5 hours for 2 nets

    Sat night- tried the incoming but waves too rough, 4 fish in 1 hour for 2 nets

    Sun morning outgoing- 26 fish in 2.5 hrs for 3 nets

    All in all ended up being a great weekend. Weather was pretty awesome for the most part.

    Sat Night - 2 hours fishing 2 nets - 4 nice reds

    Hottest seems to be about a half hour after high tide (when it starts going out)...

    The Kenaitze subsistence net caught 400 fish last night.
    I am guessing last nights dippers must have hit a good bit of fish.

    Dipped the N beach yesterday from 2:30-5pm with one net. Landed 11 and had about another dozen hit the net but didn't get gilled. Mostly small fish, but a few decent size. Enough fish to make the trip worth the effort.

    I've always tried to hit the 15th or a bit later as traditionally this is still early in the run. The first big push should be hitting any day if it hasn't already started hitting today.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.
