    Default Uppin' the King harvest

    Whats this I saw that Fish and Game will be upping the daily bag limit on hatchery kings to 4 on June 1st in Southeast??? When's the salt limit going to be upped? I thought we were in a salmon crisis. Hell, I saw Petersburg will have a limit of 4 over 28" and 4 under 28" on the same day...how many trollers from California you think can fit in Blind Slough or Fish Creek???

    We get 4 of any size in the salt starting June 1, but you've gotta be in the THA. After June is over, most of the kings I catch are from other places, so it's still "tight" on that front.

    Neat part is for non-res, the THA fish don't count toward the annual limits.

    Great day out there this afternoon, eh?

    Did I hear you call the UGA today?? I was sitting in the radio room and heard my boats name being called out. Never heard the new name called out, just thought it mught be you since I saw you earlier today in the channel. I was monkeying around on the 47' MLB out there today and saw you go by. At least it sure did look like ya.

    Other than the Blind Slough THA, right now Petersburg and Wrangell have a 3 fish/day and can fish 2 rods per person in the Stikine area. There's plenty of fish going on down there right now, I think the 4-day derby had over 400 fish turned in, most of them really good size. My fiance caught a 27.9 that got her 90th place. I was amazed at how many 30 lber's got turned in. That aside, It sounds like people are really starting to pick-up fish here in town. In places other than False Outer and Tee.

    Wasn't me calling... I heard the call too, but wasn't paying much attention.

    Yep, that was me in the channel. I assumed that was you waving from the 47. My deckie is in the final throws of getting his 6-pack lic. and he noted the bow of the 47 rotating toward us... he very knowingly declared that you were pointing "an aggressive bow" at me to show that you intended to board us. Not that I'm asking to be boarded while I have clients on board (we were on a tight timeline), but I just chuckled and made a comment about not wanting to race that thing... ever. Where are the .50 cals these days? Haven't seen an armed escort lately.
