Wife, son and myself drove to Seward on Tuesday to mainly chase butt's. We headed out past Pony Cove and drifted while my son and I jigged and my wife bounced bait along the bottom.
Couldnt seem to keep the rock fish and golden eyes off the hook so we moved spots because it bothered all of us to see those pretty golden eyes lay on the surface till an eagle swooped down and made off with them. Managed to hook into one nice butt on the jig (108 pounds). Heading back we watched a pod of Orca's feeding around Pony Cove for about an hour as some even came up to the boat and watched us. Man those things are huge up close!
Pretty good day all in all. Now you know why most of us contend with the winters
