  • Seward Silvers?

    Anyone have an idea when the silvers will be around Seward (Resurrection Bay as a whole) in catch-able numbers? I have family straying in Seward next week and they've requested a quick salmon trip. Not sure if a half day trip is worth it.

    Thanks!

      we usually get into them out side of the bay in the begging of the july and not till the middle or end of july start getting good numbers inside of the bay.

        We hammered them in Pony Cove last year on July 5th......also picked up two Kings while fishing for Silvers!

          Next week is a bit early for a typical run, but it wouldn't hurt heading out to the mouth of the bay for a try. Certainly should be some fish to catch.
          Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

          If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

              Pretty sure the second pic is a sockeye.

                We caught them on the outside last week. They will be better in the bay in a week or so...they are early.

                  There is a good chance you are right.

                    It sure has the body shape of a sockeye, but that big pupil (tough to see with the lack of light in the photo) leads me to believe it is a dime bright chum. Nice fish regardless.

                      I was thinking it was a bright chum too?!?!?

                        The placement of the eye suggests chum too. A person would figure it out really quickly with a filet knife....LOL....I always find it challenging to tell the difference between a chum and a red in the salt. However, I have never caught a red when targeting other salmon in the ocean. For example, if caught on herring, a K16, some lure, and looks like a red, it always turns out to be a chum. If you catch a salmon behind a flasher on a bare red hook (because they like that for some reason and you are intentionally targeting them) you can almost be 100% sure it is a sockeye. It does not appear to be a silver. None the less, it would go in my fish box and I'd be glad we caught it.

                          Silvers + pinks are starting to show up around Cheval Island but no great # of fish yet or any baitballs either. We caught six silvers + three pinkys yesterday & only one fish had any needlefish in his stomach - the rest were empty.

                              Caught some silvers out east of the bay yesterday. They are coming in now....
