So far our summer trips to Ketchikan are usually pretty calm, but there are days when the wind kicks up pretty good. Seems like I can find good sheltered areas to fish for all wind directions except SE. When the wind is blowing from the southeast, it just seems to kick up and around everything and make all the surrounding areas unfishable.
Is it worth making the run to Neets bay on SE wind days to A) get out of the wind, and B) get some productive fishing in? We're typically there in late July & early August, so I would assume that the various hatchery salmon runs would be in full swing ... or would they?
Yeah, I'm painfully aware that the boat ride back in would be through the wind, but I figure by sticking closer to the eastern shorelines we could avoid the worst chop & slop (would also stay FAR away from the "two towers" in Behm canal!).
