I care a lot about my father. He has been a commercial fisherman and sport fisherman all of his life. Me. Well...i only know tid bits. I asked him about how the silver salmon fishing is in southeast alaska. he said its slow because a lot of folks are catching sharks. and the salmon don't want to get eaten so they wait till it cools down before running.
in southcentral alaska. our rivers have been a little subpar and some runs just plain late. i often wonder if there are sharks here that are scaring our salmon off? or something else.
