    Question Pony Cove

    Hey everyone,

    I am not that familiar with Seward. I remember fishing resurection bay for silvers out by the cliffs on the south side many years ago.

    I have been hearing alot about Pony Cove. Where is it?

    Default Where?

    26 miles from the harbor, due south on the west side. Almost to the end of the bay.

    OK is pony cove within Resurrection bay? Or do you head out of Resurrection, head south? Just want to clarify.

    I have fished the "cliffs" on the south side of Resurrection Bay, just before the Glacier. It has been a long time since I have been out there.

    It's out at the mouth of the bay, i.e. past the rocks.

    You are going to have a chart with you when you head out, right?

    Not a nautical chart, but topozone is always a great place to find out where places are. Set the display on large and scale 1:1,000,000

    Yes on the chart, along with my Lowrance color GPS unit.

    Thanks. I just wanted to get a general idea where it was. I do PWS out of Whittier, but like trolling for silvers and had good luck out there a number of years ago.

    Thanks Paul.

    Default Pony

    AKBassing,

    This time of the year all you have to do is look for the fleet of about 50-100 boats and if it's not Pony then it's were the fish are. We were out last weekend and not only did we get into the Silvers big time but also managed to haul out a 40+ King. Good luck.

    TriIron -

    Dang. I was planning on heading to Pony tomorrow after work, but after reading about your king I'm going to have to duct tape myself to my desk chair to keep from leaving now.

    Care to share the technique (mooch, depth, rig, etc.) you used to catch that hawg?

    Thanks! My daughter will be up here next week, so I want to see her get into some silvers.

    I don't know any good places, I'm looking myself. We caught four yesterday just on the ocean side of Rugged Island(the last one, it's close to Pony cove). They were chickens, but hey it's halibut. Kind of rocky though with a bunch of rockfish grabbing your stuff.
    Hike faster. I hear banjo music.

    Thumbs up Thanks

    Thanks to everyone for the info too. My step-daughter is due up on Thursday. Her first time to Alaska, let alone out of Missouri.

    Now she worried about skin-cancer because Alaska is closer to the sun than Missouri! Some of those L48 perceptions.

    Default Pony Cove

    BassKing,

    I might have missed it but what kind of boat do you have? Some people get a little anxious when they turn the corner and look across to Pony Cove at all the water between them and the fishing. We were out this last Saturday and Sunday in the area. Did good in the Cheval area (just short of Pony Cove) but the Dog Fish (sharks) wouldn't leave us alone at Pony Cove Saturday afternoon. Sunday was such a great day we went aroung the point to view the glaciers.

    Spend part of Saturday and Sunday at Pony. Catching Saturday wasn't as good as I heard it was the day before, and Sunday was worse. Fish are there if you put in the time, and yes, the spiny dogfish at Pony were bad Saturday afternoon and worse on Sunday. Saw TriIron's boat on the water and should have said hello, but I kind of get tunnel vision when I'm fishing

    Default Hey

    Yea I know what you mean. I meant to keep a look out for ya but I had a boat full of novices and I was busy just trying to keep the boat from running over the moochers, keep the lines baited, downriggers at the right depth and net the fish all while attempting to make sure nobody fell overboard. Fished Sat and Sunday both great days. My son's girlfriend wanted to know why we didn't catch another +40lb King like last weekend!!! Ya gotta love Alaska in the summer (and winter-spring-fall).
    Ruby at the end of a good day.

    I run out of Whittier all the time now in my Wooldridge. Running 50 miles one way is no big deal for me, so long as the water isn't real bad.

    I know that the wind tends to come up in late afternoon in Resurrection Bay.
