I was out fishing, pulling up 20# after 20# at the Barren Islands a couple weeks ago and was looking over longingly at Shuyak Island, "The promised land??"
If I can get a good weather window I want to run out there from Homer this summer and fish the area for a few days, Looking for "larger" halibut, rockfish, lingcod and salmon.
We will be sleeping aboard the boat.
Has anyone fished this area that would be able to offer up some advice. I'm NOT looking for your exact coordinates but have questions like,
-Are Dungeness Available
-Fishing better on the West side where all the inlets are at OR
-East side hiding out behind the Fort Islands for the night
-Should we bring the tanner crab pots?
-I know July is early for Silvers in the streams but what about trolling around the island in the salt.
-Is VHF weather available in the area
We like remote and are very self sufficient, any advice other than "that's too far away" would be appreciated.
