Trying a new (to me) area this year, Craig. We've been going to Alaska for the last 10 years (Sitka, Kenai, Valdez) and love ocean fishing for silvers and halibut. Everything I've read looks great for mid August in this area. Planning on checking out Ketchikan while we are there, especially because we have an extra day there due to working out plane connections. Looking to hear about any experiences, good or bad, and any tips on things to see, avoid, or check out.
