Good Morning everyone, I just stumbled upon this forum after looking for some ideas for shore fishing for silvers in valdez. A brief background...My dad took a trip up there 5-6 years ago with my mom and did a little fishing from shore without much luck, but he was late in the season so most people were just snagging. Anyway, when we were discussing a location for this years fishing trip we decided to fly up from Indiana and spend a week fishing in Valdez the first week of September. We are doing 2 days on a Halibut charter and the rest of the week will be shore fishing for silvers.
From what I have figured out so far, the Allison point area is the best place for catching silvers from shore, around the harbor 2nd. We are bringing 7-8ft rods, both spinning and baitcasting. But I am more concerned with what lures work best or typically work best... We've fished for lake michigan Coho's a few times and catch them on a variety of spoons, spinners, crankbaits, and live bait (cut bait, minnows, and night crawlers). Is that typically what you guys catch them on up there, anything special I should bring or just bring a variety and see what they prefer?
Any tips or things to bring would be appreciated... I've never been to Alaska so just looking to get the most out of the trip!
