  • My first time ever at the event.... wow. I did not have any idea what to expect, beautiful weather, almost totally flat ocean, and I was getting to fish with last years 2nd Place finisher, Eric Kjelland. I did not catch a single fish myself but our boat had four anglers and went 3 for 5 in the boat. The largest was 17 lbs.

    Even without a fish for myself, I had a good time. The post fishing event and award ceremony allowed me to meet a few folks i had only ever talked with online - Rudy T had to be my highlight. I follwed his ice fishing blogs a few years back and alwasy wanted a chance to meet up with him. Just might have to come back next year.

    Thanks to everyone and the city of Homer hosting a terrific event. Might have to come back and actually catch a winter king salmon next time.

        Anyway, glad your family made it down too! Great memories I'm sure! I'm going to try to get to your seminar at the sportsman show. Lots to learn!

        Yes you will be fishing with us! This year! We have the gear. I'm pretty sure Mark said they'd be renting drysuits too if we can't find ya one! I'd say anytime from Mid-May through November we can get you on the water for some decent fishing so pick a time!!!!!!

        I'll definitely try and make it to one of your seminars. We are head to head Friday I think next to each other no less...I am bringing my guitar amp! just kidding!

        It was an honor meeting you Jedi! Love the Alaska Salmon Slayers website and Facebook. Looks like you are reaching out and getting folks excited about fishing...even in landlocked Fairbanks! That's awesome!!! We are definitely going to try and convince you to come out with us as well! Let's do this!!!!

        • Our first time at the Derby as well and we had a blast! I agree with the kudos to the Chamber for putting on an awesome event. We had 6 anglers on board and boated 10 for the day... unfortunately all in the 8-10 pound range. But it's hard to complain with constant action and a beautiful day like that.

          We tried heading over to the compass hole on Sunday morning to see about some halibut, but to no avail. Do the butts move out into deeper water for the winter in K-Bay as well and then follow the salmon runs back into shallower water in the summer? Just curious for next year, won't waste my time if there isn't gonna be anybody home.

            Day!

            Good fishing with everyone again, this is our fifth year in a row and we don't plan on stopping!

            Thanks again to the Homer chamber for putting this together!

              That's as good as it gets Rudy. Three or four generations down the road, that's still going to be the prize photo. Well done.

                Last year i won the YouTube Video contest and there is not one this year, so i cant officially defend my "title"..

                Here is a trailer for a video of this years derby! Enjoy.....

                  • Time for the 2016 King Derby,, new thread?? Who is in this year? Based on the current fishing success and the projected tides, Saturday morning should be epic. See you there!
