    Default gibbon anchorage

    Green Islands Gibbon Anchorage is one of the best in the sound. There are plenty of camp sites and no bears. Use your charts and watch out for the submerged rocks. There are about a trillion pinks which you will have to negotiate but the one forrestry cabin is a real gem. We stay there for about a week every year. There are a few silvers who venture into that anchorage as well. Enjoy the vast numbers of berries. Some halibut can be caught around the uneven terrain around the island. Some large herds of cod can be had east of the island. If I could offer, bring some dry firewood and firestarters along as most of the wood is water soaked. Have fun!

    You could just go around the tip of Montague and fish the entrance. Just a thought. I hear there are a few fish around there.

    How deep have you been fishing Knight Island? During the early part of the season DEEP seems to be the ticket. I was out there last weekend doing very poorly on my 220-250 ft GPS spots that normally produce in mid-July, then tried drifting to deeper depths of 325-350 ft. and the action picked up considerably. I like to fish big rubber jigs with some tough bait like octopus or cod belly added on. Sorry, no hot spots to share. Too many hours invested. Keep at it and you will soon have your own secret spots. Good luck!

    Default Good spot

    Green Island is good fishing from my observations in my 1 trip there. We fished right off the beach in 200' of water about half way down the island. Anyway we limited out 6 folks with Chickens and that was on June 20 last year. This year however we have found the fishing faster up North. We have gotten an 80 and a 135 this year with a bunch of chickens in a few trips. Jigs will outfish bait typically. Keep bait down for scent and have someone run a Kodiak Customs jig. Expensive but phenominal, I witnessed it myself last weekend. Fishing 180 to 280. Shrimp have been from the same holes in 500'.

    Thanks gooch. Dream catcher I wasen't asking for hot spots and secret spots just looking for area's. As for secret hot spots there the same ones everyone else use's so I really wouldn't call them secret spots and so far this year those spots that usally produce fish aren't producing so we wanted to go out a littl further and was just checking if someone was willing to share an area not a spot. Heck if someone wanted an area around where I fished I wouldn't have a problem telling them they just need to ask as some have already done for bear hunting.
