Went out with Captain Jimmy on the "Sea Chase" yesterday. 6 pack charter scheduled thru Rob @ Whittier Boat and Tackle (Forum sponsor).
Mother-in-law caught 2 'butts; the big one was 56" (estimated 92 lbs) the other about 25lbs in the first hour. Those were the only two halibut in the boat all day.
Found some Silvers towards the end of the day and got about a dozen in the boat in ~2hrs. Caught and released a few pinks. Caught and kept one Sockeye (didn't even realize it was a sockeye until we got back to the pier).
Jim worked hard for us, and everyone had a good time and went home with a bunch of fish. A couple of the Coho were on the high side of 20lbs.
Water was very flat. 70 degrees and Sunny. Can't believe it for PWS. Sure was nice for in laws visiting from lower 48.
