    Also tons of eagles and seagulls along the shallows in the flats. I'm thinking about going tonight after work if I can figure the tide timing out.

    I went down to Twentymile yesterday. Took my boat upriver and found a bunch of birds working the water. We filled a small cooler in about 20 minutes and then went for a boat ride.

    My wife took my 13-year old son and two of his buddies down for an evening Wednesday. The boys managed a few gallons of hooligan at basically slack tide. Timing was not in their favor, but boys in the water=fun anyway.

    One thing that was curious: they were getting scoops of 40-50 stickleback. I have never seen or heard of them even schooling up before. Anyone else ever seen that?

    There are anadromous populations of three-spine stickleback. I assume they were catching out migrating or returning schools. I've seen thousands leaving a creek at the mouths of rivers. Although, this is normally in the first week in June.
    Your bait stinks and your boat is ugly

    Good to know. I didn't know there were anadromous stickleback. Interesting.

    I netted a 12” or so dolly when I was down there last weekend off the highway.

    Sometimes you get things you don't expect when you're dipnetting. I got a burbot in the Copper River a few years ago....

    Saw what looked like a net-full of hooligan as I drove across the Kbeach bridge over the Kenai on Saturday.

    Could have been beer cans though since I was driving carefully and responsibly and not rubbernecking................

    Me and a friend filled up 3 coolers of hooligan in about 30 minutes today on the Yentna River.

    Got one in 15-20min couple days ago. Talked with another guy who got 6 in an hour. 20-mile.
    saw the eagles get about a dozen in the same time frame.

    Went for a boat ride today. Decided to stop and dip on the way back down when I saw some birds working the water. Filled half a cooler or so in about 20 minutes and called it good. Half a dozen folks at the bridge when I came back. Sounded like pretty slow fishing there. It was nice to get back on the water!

    A little on the late side, but may first was good dipping on the 20 mile. It wasn’t hot but the weather certainly was! A good family outing with a bonus whale sighting!
