    According to reports limits are coming quick! Don't forget to thank a cook inlet commercial fisherman for financing the stocking of this run. We aint all bad.

    I’ll start thanking Cook Inlet commercial fisherman when they start telling the BoG to restrict and close their fishing before the sport fishing. They need to admit they’re killing these runs and sport fishing has very little impact.

    You may be good personally, but as a whole, commercial fishing is indeed all bad. Especially for Alaska. The 3-4% retufn that the state gets from it is nothing compared to all that we lose.

    Don't want to hijack the thread,just wanted to point out to those who don't know that these are hatchery fish. Seems to be a movement to reduce hatchery programs. Sorry you feel all commercial fishing is bad. Hope you have tight lines this summer. Now back to the original topic...

    How is it that red and king and silver salmon were fished HARD in Cook Inlet by commercial fishermen from the 1890s into the the 1960s and the stocks just kept coming in? This harvest included not only set and drift nets, but dozens and dozens of fish traps too on both sides of the inlet. And yet the salmon kept coming and coming. And then the sport fishery caught on in the late 50s and 60s, and guides entered the picture... And we are where we are today.
    A little unrealistic for you to point the finger at commercial fishermen who are throttled way, WAY back from what they used to be. Everybody needs a bogeyman, but you are barking up the wrong tree. History is not on your side.

    Department of CommFish disagrees with you:
    "Combined with fish traps in Cook Inlet and other areas, poor management by the Federal Government, and the foreign fleet fishing just off shore, salmon runs plummeted statewide, and by the late 1950s were considered a federal disaster."

    Sorry I didn't see this earlier. The tail end of the outgoing was about an hour before low. There was a good on-shore breeze that whipped up right around low tide, so it didn't stay slack for long. My timing has historically not been great either, though - fair warning - and it seems like you can't necessarily set your clock by it at Resurrection. Seems like the early incoming tends to be the most productive and anything near high tide is crappy, but then I'll hear reports to the contrary. I try to fish from 2 hours prior to low through about 2 hours prior to high and rest with the outgoing. Hope they're still coming in.
    My signature is awesome.

    We fished Friday and Saturday. Outgoing tides, 3hrs before low, and fished the incoming. Didn't see a whole lot of action, people were getting fish just not super hot action.

    Fished Saturday and Sunday. Saturday, we had 14 fish between 3 people and walking out, people commended how well we did. Sunday was a train wreck, the commercial guys were out with big nets and we only say a few fish. Has slowed down.

    It's worth noting that the limit has been temporarily increased to 12 reds per day per angler.
