Spent three days in Seward with my boys (5 & 2 1/2). We were targeting Silvers, but mostly looking for a good time.
Day one (Aug 5) went out to Callisto Head. Pretty rough (the two year old gets sea sick). Then over to Fox with no luck. The search for calmer seas took us back to Caines Head, which yielded two nice Silvers out of half a dozen hook ups. We trolled with the tide, downriggers set at 45' and using herring and flashers. Only able to get the downriggers set and down on the down wind troll due to my crews lack of experience (the up wind troll was impossible with a five year old at the wheel while dad was setting gear). We ended day one at the Army Military Rec camp hotel room watching bow hunting on the outdoor channel.
Day two (Aug 6). Straight out to Caines Head using similar tactics. Different flashers and Pro Troll E lures (fresh bait got left in truck oops) This yielded two more Silvers (pics below)and one small pink. Not as many hookups, but fish where bigger. Ended day two same as before (no bowhunting on tv).
Day three (Aug 7). Same place, same tactics + a little mooching, no luck. Called it quits early for the drive back to Palmer.
A great time was had by all. I haven't had as much fun just hanging out with any other guys. My two buddies are a whole lot of fun and the older one is becoming quite the seaman.
