Every year I have some buddies who come up from California to enjoy Alaska. I have only lived here a few years and, although I try to show them a good time, our fishing luck has sucked beyond words. For example we went out of deep creek last year and didn't get so much as a nibble for halibut. We were, I thought, fishing the right tides, we had the 'right' gear etc but got nothing. We have 5 or 6 guys fishing for a week and we might catch one or two fish. We have even gone the Kenai with an experienced guide and caught nothing but a dolly or two. They are coming back on June 27 for a week. I need to do better. Without getting anyones secret spots, does anyone have an idea what I can with these guys here on the Kenai? They might stop coming if I can't get these guys to catch a fish and I have learned that local knowledge is everything. Where to go and what to use makes the difference between nothing and something. Please help me.
