I have fished Valdez for Pinks and Silvers but otherwise never got down to the salt water when living on Eielson. Now I live in Wrangell and noone fishes from shore. I know shore fishing for Kings heats up out of Juneau, but I have only ever seen people play around scrap fishing from the docks in Wrangell. What do folks rig for Kings out of Juneau? A few places like Petroglyph Beach I could cast into a lot of boats out in the line up. What do you folks reccomend trying?
I have thought of herring on a live bait slide rig (if it's legal), but I suspect the smaller rockfish might not let it be long enough to attract anything bigger. Am I religated to casting a crippled herring?
