Been ferrying the inside passage on our way back to Fairbanks and got a chance to charter out of Sitka.
Our charter (pm if you want name) was quite nice and they did a good job of making sure all tangles and herring were replaced quickly and efficiently. They were well respective of my pregnant wife who, despite the Bonine and good sea legs, couldn't beat a little sea sickness (though she rallied quickly).
Fishing wise it was a captain admitted "Slow year" in Sitka so far. He says it has been real inconsistent and that they have been hard to find in volume like in years past. That being said we did pretty well boating 6 King Salmon (including 1 white one) 10 Silvers, a ton of black bass, 6 yellow-eye, and three halibut. There were 5 of us fishing on the boat and we were working pretty hard from 5am to 5pm going between spots and fishing tough. So all in all it was a good trip and we have some fish for the freezer but I am a little dissapointed as I was expecting the Sitka of Lore type fishing that I have been hearing about for the past 8 years.
