    Dunno about Seward, but we picked up a couple over here yesterday. Mooching 60' down out on the tide rip off a headland and about humpy size- 4# or so.

    Ya, from what I usually see on here PWS is a couple weeks ahead of us on silvers, and we've been seeing them for the last week, almost 2 now.

    My daughter's friend managed to catch a silver on the South end of Culross on June 7th. We were jigging for rock fish.

    At least a month earlier than I'd expect, but they are starting to return to the sound.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

    I'm over on The Rock (Kodiak). Those two silvers were a couple of weeks early for that location, where we usually get them around 4 July. Last year was off the charts though, as we were catching large numbers of (tiny) silvers by now. Early fish probably didn't average much over 3 pounds last year.

    Don't know about Pony Cove but the silvers are coming into the Cheval Narrows area now. We caught 4 + 1 nice sized pinky on the seaward side of Cheval Island today in surprisingly decent weather for what the forecast was. Not too many boats were out today.

    We picked up two nice sized silvers in Cheval Narrows in the rain on Saturday. Two good takedowns that I suspect were kings, but were not landed. Had to pick through a few pinks to get them, but good fun in the rain.

    That's funny sheet Brian! Based on my single adventure with kwakkilla, I am sayin he donned waders and swam out to bonk those salmon, counted coup on the slimy slippery bastages.

    I'm thinking they'll be some big fish around this year. Fiala had 2 nice fish on the fingers, I saw one that was a solid 7lbs Friday night and Chaz confirmed a 10lber almost 2 weeks ago.

    Cheval was pretty productive yesterday and the weather and water were great. I think that I was able to catch a bunch of fish since my electronics went out so I had to focus on what felt and looked right instead of keeping to a specific speed and marking fish. Red racer 11" flasher with herring set 48" back worked well. Pinks and silvers mixed in. Canning the pinks today.

    and I was catching them all through the water column, 130 feet to 30 feet. Two big strikes down deep that we weren't able to land.

    Fish on

    I wonder what the size of the fish will be. Seen reports Reds off the Copper where they are much smaller this year. Last years coho here in WA were much smaller by a few pounds. All the talk was it was the blob, which Im sure will still effect this year as well.
