    Default Seward or valdez?

    I have time off from aug 3 -7 and want to go silver fishing. I do have an 18 ft boat I'll be taking but will have to stay in close obviously. Wondering where fishing will be better thanks!

    Seward is probably your better bet for that time-frame. End of August is usually when they come in close in Valdez in big numbers.

    It can get pretty choppy on the harbor end of the bay late in the day, so watch out for that.

    I will vote the other way....Valdez. You may have to run out to the Narrows but the fish start stacking up just outside the Narrows if they have not come in the bay. Even in an 18 footer you can easily get to the fish as they have a few more better weather days and protected areas to fish just outside the Arm. A far run would be to Goose Island.
