Last weekend shrimped Perry 6 gallons tails 5 picks, 3 person limit of nice yellow off outside of upper night Island Passage, Saturday 30 & 45# butt off outer naked island. Each time fishing less than 2 hours.
This weekend Seal Rock Saturday, nothing but chickens, kept a 2 person limit tossed back half of what we landed , fished inside Seal Rock for butts too rough outside. Whittier Charter boats we're out there fishing also with similar luck, lots of chatter on the radio seems like the fishing just shut down for halibut. It calmed down on the outside around noon fished a Rockpile limited out on nice black rockfish in about 6 drifts, the current was horrendous out there. Picked up one legal lingcod in addition to the rockfish and one fat yellow eye. It's the first time I saw so many charter boats outside of hinchinbrook from Whittier seems they usually run South so can only conclude that the halibut are not on the bite down south,I think they're moving into the sound at this point following the salmon.
2 gallons of shrimp tails off Perry in 2 picks, could have got more but don't think I got the depth dialed in, (no specifics on location here sorry)
At this point I don't think you need to go out more than forty or fifty miles to get into good fishing.
