    Default Kachemak bay silvers

    When do silvers show up in number in Kachemak Bay?

    Sounds like there are some around now and it will only get better. Middle to end of August should be best time.

    I'm heading down for a few days to try and catch a saltwater silver! Any suggestions on how to setup downriggers, type of bait or gear, location? I've never trolled before in my life!

    Lots of fish west or pogibshi fish should be 20-40 feet typical troll set ups of lures or bait should work great

    Hook your flashers to your downrigger balls, a two foot leader is what I use. Let the ball down a few feet, let 20 feet or so of your line out, attach line to downrigger line with snap gear/downrigger clip. I like to put my fishing line about 3/4 of way in the downrigger clip. Drop er down about 30-45 feet. For lures I favor the Brads, King Kandy and either an Apex or hootchie. Silvers are not hard to catch. Good luck and PM with any questions.

    We got 7 yesterday out by Silver ridge, the
    charter boats seem to be getting them pretty consistently.
    Looked like the setnetters around the spit aren't doing that great, nothing like last years surge.

    Just got back from Homer. We nailed the ***** outta silvers, not at silver ridge but between there and the bluffs. I think we had 5 limits in under 40 minutes. There were a number of boats, both charter and private, in the area.

    Hey, would you mind telling about how far off the bluffs? Any kings in the mix? Thanks.

    We were about 8 miles off the bluffs, and yes we got a king.

    Anybody have any new reports of silvers being caught recently? I know the water conditions have been rough the last couple of days. So I'm asking if anyone has caught any closer to the Homer spit than going out to Silver Ridge.

    This last weekend we had allot of pinks. We got a chum, silver, king and pink all in one day. Wanted to run to Tutka and see if we could find an old red to get all five species in one day. We were still getting more kings than silvers by Pogi.

    Feeder kings have been good in the bay. A few silvers, but really...with feeder kings around why would you bother?
