Here's the deal.
I'm a fishing guide in Pennsylvania, specializing in Shad, Stripers and Smallmouth Bass.
In mid August of 2010, I'm bringing two families to Alaska for two weeks. The first week will be spent touring Denali and making our way down through Seward to Homer. The second week will be spent in the Homer area.
While we're in Homer, we'll hop on a plane for a day to see bears. Also, we'll spend a day or two on one of the Halibut boats - probably Capt. Sean's "Irish", becuase we've got more folks than a 6 pack can take, and because the folks at North Country seem to be good people.
Now, the meat of the question. I'd like to fish for Silvers and since I'll have kids from ages 8 to 12, I don't want to go the guide route (it would be like herding cats!). Can someone fill me in on the basics of fishing for Silvers in the rivers around Homer during August?
I've already researched the Homer Spit Lagoon and understand that it will be a good "fall back position", in case we can't figure out the rivers.
Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide.
