I'm bringing my young son to Ketchikan on July 20 for our first father/son Alaska fishing trip. I have learned from many of you (thanks for replying to my original post!!!) that we might be a tad too early for silver salmon, but, should have some luck with chum salmon. I got a kick out of the earlier responses to another poster on his question about silvers, so, here goes:
Are chum salmon good to eat?
With the limit for kings being 48" and the silvers arriving a bit later, chums might be my best bet for returning to Hawaii with something for the grill (or smoker). So, I'm hoping the name chum (or dog) has nothing to do with the taste.
Tight lines to all ... Aloha, Scott
PS: I visit this site almost daily and love reading about all there is to do on the water in Alaska. I'm hooked. I don't know exactly where all these places are that I read about, but, I sure love reading the posts. I hope to thank all of you by posting some pics in late July of my 11-yr-old with his trophy halibut or salmon.
