Spent a week on the Kenai peninsula with my dad not too long ago. We had an absolute blast! It was my first trip to AK, 2nd trip for my dad. It's safe to say that this place had gotten in to my blood and I will be back. We had 3 guided trips during our week stay (1 salt trip out of Homer for Halibut, and 2 drift boats on the Kenai for reds/silvers). In the time we were there the pinks were THICK so we had to work to find our reds/silvers, but the fishing was non stop, and it was a blast! In one morning on the Kenai, just below the Pillars I landed 78 fish from 6:30am until noon. It was just incredible! The vast majority of those were pinks (73 pinks, 5 reds - I finished out my dad's limit that morning since he tweaked his back). I'm a river rat down here in the PNW, and have never "flipped" or "lined" a fish before. There is definitely a learning curve to this technique, but after I got it down and learned how to feel the fish I was only foul hooking 1/15 or so, and it was a lot more fun than I expected.
We spent the rest of our days exploring and fishing. At the end of our week we shipped home a total of 150lbs of fillets between the two of us. All in all a very successful week.
We are already starting to plan our next trip, and want to target some trophy Kings and 'bows
