I've been in Alaska now for two summers and I'm hooked on fishing Resurrection Bay for both the scenery and the fishing. My problem is that I dont really know what I'm doing. I usually rent a boat from Ft. Rich and follow the rest of the pack to the narrows, pony cove, or wherever the salmon are and I do pretty well. Now the pressure is on because my whole family is coming up the first week of July and I've got to find the fish. If the coho are late I would like to fish for black rockfish and lings. Does anyone have a good location for this species? I wouldnt dare ask for a hailbut spot (but I would take one ). The lings would be catch and release since I'm in the bay but their still cool to catch. How do the tides affect the bite? We did well one trip on the east side of Fox but the next time we tried it was dead. Thanks for any help.
