Thread: Dipped Wed. June 20th, my first time!!

  1. #1

    Default Dipped Wed. June 20th, my first time!!

    Me and five others dipped Wed evening with Captain Kim and his wife, Rose. (Captain Kim's Goodtime Charters) Spoke with Kim at the Fairbanks Outdoor show and decided to book his show special a few months ago.
    Two Dad and son teams on the boat so we had 4 permits to fill. Ended up with 90 fish including 4 kings. It seemed like we dipped just as many kings as reds.
    I would get a couple of reds then a king, two more reds then another king. Ended up dipping 5 kings, another guy on the boat dipped 4, both dads dipped at least two each. One of the sons dipped a couple as well. This can drive you nuts when you have your limit of kings on the boat!

    Here's some pics...




    Legally transported one of the other families fish.

    Nice pics. Looks like you did pretty good. Did they drop you on shore or did you stay in the boat?

    We dipped out of the boat. It was a really fun trip. We are making plans for next year already.

    I see two of the three fish had the tail fin clipped, what happened to the third one? Nice fish by the way and where did you dip at?

    Whitetail1der:
    Look a little closer. All three are clipped. We transported and processed fish for one of the other families that dipped with us.
    Being my first time on the river, all I can say is I think we were below the canyon? I suspect we were close to the lower limit of the dip netting section of the river.

    How much is the Good Time Charters? Is it per person like Hem's or for the boat? How many do they take at a time? Do they stay out until you get your limit or a certain number of hours?

    Thanks for any info,

    According to the website, his normal rate is $160/person for five hours. We filled the boat with 6 people (max) and he charged us $600. I thought it was the show special at the Fairbanks Outdoor show but looks like its good all the time. He also rents you a net for an additional $10 if you don't have one. The link below is his website.
    I'm not as brave as others to tempt rockslides and sheer cliffs, so for $110, it was a bargain. Kim and his wife really worked at getting us on the fish. All we had to do was get the fish in the boat. From there, they would whack'em and stack'em in the plastic cans.

    The Lucky Rose was sure slamming the salmon when we were drifting the same section of river a few weekends ago. They were efficient and didn't waste much time either. I was impressed!

    I am no expert and that weekend was my first time on the river but I thought the occupants on the boat would have much more success if they floated downriver sideways. It would literally be the scoop of death. I don't know if that posses a safety risk or not but with that many people lined up with the stern pointing on a down river float I noticed the people in the rear would net more fish than the ones in the front. I am sure there are many complications with a sideways drift but I would imagine it would be much more effective for everyone on the boat. What are your guy's thoughts?

    I drift sideways. It does work better for me. I dont think six people could dip out of one side of Kims boat though. He probably does it the way he does so everyone can dip at once. I would guess they alternate who is in the back.
