So we tried to fish the feeder kings one more time. We are pretty clueless, but we are trying! Sunday we head out towards Pt Pogi. Got a few hits but can't solidly hook anything up. Moved to Yukon Island on the sheltered side. It was nearly impossible keeping the pollock off the line. TONS of pollock TONS of bait fish. In fact we saw humpback whales breaching the surface through schools of bait fish. Uber cool.
We managed two kings and two ping pong paddle halibut for four rods. Less than stellar. BUT we pick up a sockeye trolling in the saltwater. Not sure if it hit the herring or the plain hooks after the herring got stripped. We dragged it in on a bait check so it wasn't going to make it released. We cut it open and the meat looked ok and if anything, the milt looked immature. My first saltwater sockeye...my latest edible sockeye.
So what was this fish doing? Where was it going?
