ok heres a question that i hope will raise some comments and i welcome them all please let loose. i have my lifejacket on and am prepared for your replies . fishing from whittier in a 21 foot northriver commander 350 hamilton 212 which fishing ground would be the safest to venture out to and get back to cover if bad weather rolled in. seal rocks on the east side of montegue or cape clear on the west side. looks like the distance to safety are about the same with seal rocks to zaikof bay coming in a few miles closer and a due north heading. cape clear to mcleod harbor is roughly 15 miles to shelter with a northeastern heading. i have experiance in prince william sound running to the north end of montague a few times a year and working my way out a ways into the gulf around ellrington this last year. ocean swell dosent bother me. so which area would you guys hit if it was you and reasons would be appreciated as well. never been that far out in the gulf and my boat is pretty fast if need be. most weather from both areas would be pushing into prince william sound and i would not be headed out in any crappy weather.
