Truth be told, I would rather stand waist deep in a trout stream all by myself and soak in the experience but occasionally the need for something different arises.
I am planning to fish out of Homer on Saturday 7/18 and Deep Creek the next day with my wife and 2 boys. I am in a 20' foot Thunder Jet. From a safety standpoint, the boat can run a heck of a lot further out than my wife will be comfortable with so we will be fishing from a point where land is visible. Given that, I am looking for any reasonable current information on where I might find fish out of deep creek . I have done this a couple of times but I have to admit it has been a hit or miss endeavor. I am not looking forderby winners, just enough to fill the cooler and make the trip enjoyable. Any thoughts?
Homer presents another question? I would rather not launch in Homer to run back around toward Anchor Point. Going out from the spit are there reasonable areas to fish relatively close in towards Tutka of Jakalof? Do I need ro run as far as Selvovia? Once again just looking for the 20-30# range. As I am a one man show, anything beyond that tends to turn into work.
I see people launching 2 hours before the tide peaks and coming back in 3 hours after and then I see people that launch in the morning regardless of the tide and fish all day. What is preferred?
Thanks in advance for any input you can offer.
