Kodiak's silvers are really weird this year. They arrived really early and in good numbers.
But they're tiny! And lots are really skinny!
In spite of Kodiak's rep for big silvers, I bet the average is well below 10#.... On the order of 6# or 7# or so. No end of them, but I'm still catching a few fish around 4#, the size you'd expect offshore early in July. My wife and I hook and release a whole lot of fish, but I'm pretty sure we haven't landed a one over 10# yet. You'd think they were reds, at best.
Potential bad news for anyone planning to come over here this fall. On top of the small fish, the river mouth at Pasagshak has closed off with a great big sand bar. No big rains in sight to wash it out either.
Just a weird year over here.
