    Between Rugged and Hive Island. Check the chart for the line where it drops off there. You may need to anchor due to winds. You can always drag a bucket to slow down.

    Not sure how you chose Seward but Homer is a much better place to find large numbers of halibut close in for the family.

    Gearing up for silvers is not complicated, go into the tackle shop there in town and get some flashers, deep six divers and herring rigs.

    Watch for structure around Fox, Hive, and Rugged Island. Any jig like a Wilson Dart will at find Rock Fish. I've always found it best to anchor over gravel bottom or a drop off for halibut. There are many techniques, but when anchored, soaking a large piece of herring on a circle hook is hard to beat. It also really helps to chum the bottom with chopped herring, salmon guts, etc. As limon32 said, there are lots of Silvers around now and they aren't difficult to catch. Good luck!
