    You know its bad when you have to clean jellies off your junk!!!!

    A couple weekends ago you couldn't fish Driftwood, just too many of the brown bastids.

    Trolled east side of Day Harbor, mooched in Driftwood Bay, Cheval and Pony Cove on 7/10. 4 Silvers and 4 Pinks. We didn't get skunked but almost! The brown jellies are still bad.

    Today Pony was ok for The jelly fish, but slow. Lots of boats but not many fish. We went to Chevel after only a couple of silvers at Pony. The jelly fish were horrible and we left. Checked out a few places closer in and picked up a king, and a few more silver and pinks. Total for the day was: 4 silver and 1 king

    Spent Sunday night around Pony cove trolling. Tons and tons of jellyfish, it made downriggers pointless. We could still mooch, but even then we were picking up jellies pretty fast. We ended up giving up and fishing elsewhere.

    They are thick this year.

    We fished Friday and Saturday. Friday we kept 14 silvers and released lots of pinks. Jelly fish gave us a lot of practice of setting out the downriggers! Saturday I fished shallow to stay out of the jellies and we kept 19 including one small king and again lots of pinks.

    Had anyone been out this week? Curious if the jellies are still there and if the fish are still around?

    I think all the guy who have posted with in the last 7 days fit that bill.

    I was out there this past Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and the reports posted were from theb as well. The bliw seemed to slow each day so I was looking to see if mie fishhad moved in Tuesday/ wednesday, trying to decide if I want to head that way on Friday.

    we fished Cheval and Pony for an hour or two Saturday morning. Was marking fish but everything was slimed up with the brown jellies. I ran to Granite to see if we could get away from them but no luck, even worse out there. Ended up ditching salmon and was able to get a couple halibut over 100lbs and limits of rock fish. I've never seen jellies this bad, anywhere.

    The silver bite started at Pony on July 5th. I picked up 6 mooching and there were a lot of charters with a lot of boats hooking up regularly. Unfortunately things have slowed back down and I didn't bother trying Pony this weekend. There were a few widely dispersed private boats there and it didn't look like the bite was on this past Friday an Saturday. Brown jellyfish have been a massive PITA almost everywhere as well.

    We fished Saturday and Sunday at driftwood bay fishing was better Saturday and Sunday once the fog rolled in the fishing slowed way down. One plus is the jelly fish weren't as bad their as at pony cove.
    that stuff is a pain in the ???

    Anyone know why the brown jellies are so bad this year? I was at pony a few days ago, only got 4 silvers and a ton of jellies. I hope it isn't over for the year.

    Warming water temperatures, over fishing of the oceans leads to jelly fish blooms. From what I have read its becoming more common all around the world.

    We had a season like that out in Bristol Bay many years ago, It was a hot summer, commercial set net fishing in t-shirts because it was too hot for jackets or rain gear. But pull the net over the side of the boat and we'd be covered by jellyfish, some of which stung. It happens from time to time, nothing new. That was the summer I saw one of my Eskimo friends eat a jellyfish. He said it tasted like hot like peppers.

    So they caught so many silvers this year the brown jellies are moving in to get revenge?

    I fished at the south end of Fox yesterday and tried in the Narrows but no silvers. Three bites and 1 pink is all we did
