We are coming up from North Carolina to fish out of Valdez the last week of May.
My friend from Fairbanks has a 28 foot boat with all the electronic gear but is not much of a fisherman. He tells me that he has 2 salmon rods and 2 bottomfish rods but never catches much of anything. Last weekend he went west out of Valdez towards the glacier. He told me that there were all kinds of fish in 40 feet of water but nothing would bite.
I was wondering what techniques and lures you might recommend for halibut and rockfish at that time of the year?
