A few months ago I asked how to 'repay' someone or people on this forum for all the info and advice they have given me. Some said to clean their boat, skin their bears, first born child, first million dollars etc. All normal stuff of course.
One way I will repay people is by posting reports. These reports will be long, and maybe boring to some, but hopefully a good read for most.
FIRST REPORT!! YEAH!!!
Well, Rose (my girlfriend) and I left Anchorage around 9:30am Saturday morning towards...who knows. We had a cabin rented in Soldotna, and a charter out of Deep creek for sunday.
With the wealth of information at my fingertips trough books, internet and even a few phone numbers, my mind farted. It was a massive fart... It was now 10:30 and I wasnt sure if we were going to Seward, Kenai river, Kasilof, Homer etc.
I did ask on the forum before leaving "where should I try surf casting between Kasilof mouth or Kenai mouth?"
So I decided to try Kasilof. We got there around 3:30pm after checking in at our cabin. What a waste of time. I walked out well over 100 yards and it was knee deep the whole time. No worries, I remembered someone telling me to try 'crooked creek campground'.
CROOKED CREEK CAMPGROUND
Lots of people there. Well, by 'lots' I mean about 30-40 that I saw. There were a few caught that I heard of, but I didnt see a thing. The guy next to me told me he saw 3-4 caught.
Me? Not a sniff but at least I lost 3 lures .
Next day, we head out to Deep Creek for some Halibut fishing!!!
