I'm planning to come up in late August-early September (approx Aug 23-Sept 10) and am considering a one day charter out of Seward. If we do it, we would like to get the whole package, halibut, lingcod, rockfish, silvers, whatever is hitting. It would be my son-in-law and myself. He lives in Anchorage. We are on a fairly tight budget. After splitting the catch with him, I would like to get my share back home to MN. I could either ship or take it as checked baggage.
What is my realistic expectation to catch at that time of year? Is there much difference between doing it early (shortly after arrival) vs later (shortly before departure)? We will be flying to/from Anchorage.
What are the limits on silvers, buts, etc?
While I know the scenery is spectacular, and I would enjoy seeing whales, I'm not interested in just a boatride...
Are there any of you who keep a boat in Seward, who would consider cutting us a deal? We can do our own processing as my son-in-law has freezer space, and vacuum processor. We're both ok with cutting.
Thanks in advance for any pointers.
