The only places I know of near Whittier are Esther rock and the three seamounts just outside of Pigot bay and heading north.
They usually dont produce anything bigger than 40 pounds but I usually have a few chickens by now, this year - nothing; zip, zilch, nada.
On a tip from B&Js (great store) ran down to Eshamy bay to jig and soak a circle hook. Caught a whole bunch of rockfish and a 20 inch kelp greenling (how do those taste?) but no halibut.
Any ideas on what happened or where to go? Not anybodies secret holes, but the "everybody knows" places to try.
I dont have the range to get to Montegue, I can just get to northernmost bits of Knight island but I'm into my 1/3rd reserve if I do.
