Talk about excitement. Read this article from the ADN. A really neat attached picture as well.
Yeah, I saw that this AM. That would be an experience. If the seas hold, I am heading out there after sunday. I am going to seal rocks and back to the light house for some butt. Unless those critters are still there. hahahaha
No way man, we have an osprey that I will feel more comfortable in.
Never been out there, I think it will be fun. I hope we can make it to Seal Rocks. I have heard some crazy stories about that place. BIG stuff everywhere. I wouldn't go in Mirror Lake in a kayak. The wife would be collecting some insurance and I would be drowned.
Using whole pink salmon as bait... . Isn't something wrong with that picture?
I see big possibilities here for great halibut/ling cod bait...
How about a big lure with a humpy fillet attached (ala sardine wrap on a Quickfish)?
Proof comes in the form of a receipt from the seller listing the species and pounds purchased.
I know you're skeptical, but this is standard procedure for shark fishing (and probably some other fishermen as well).
I bet that would produce some extremely large halibut, whats the largest halibut ever produced by your familys boat brian?
Are you referring to the price paid? If so, nope. We get paid more per pound as the fish get larger, with anything over 50 or so pounds worth the same amount per pound.
Unbelievable. I would like to see a picture of them fighting the sharks.

Do we have the 3A vs. 2C double standard at play again? MY current set of EO's and news releases have a spot about sport caught pink and chum salmon now being legal to use for bait. Yep, just checked... it's in SE only (for now.)
For the last few years, I've had my local processor vacuum up pink and chum steaks. I keep 5# or so in my bait freezer for the impromptu halibut or sable trips we book. Nice convenient packaging.... something like the nice trays of herring I buy instead of pulling my own fresh bait... saves a LOT of "wasted time" in the clients' eyes.

Im heading out this weekend to go kill a shark. Does anyone know where i could buy some pinks in Anchorage?
You've got a drag on your reel, and (if you're smart) an air bladder of some sort in the kayak with you. So the shark can't pull you under. He'll eventually tire, and you shoot him.
I knew a guy who shark fished in Santa Barbara Channel (famous for big white sharks) in a 13' jonboat. He used jugs as "bobbers" (similar to the exaggerated drums on "Jaws"). The shark fought the jugs of air, not the jonboat.
It's a neat gag, if you're into such stuff.
I outgrew gags years ago........
i wonder if they prepared their catch properly after it was caught. it won't be good eating if they didn't.
you have to bleed them while the heart is still pumping, usually cut em' at the tail and then gut them asap when they die. keep the meat cool until you get home.
