  • Whitter Lately

    How has the silver fishing been out of Whitter lately. New to it so if you wouldn't might giving up an area to start looking it would be great.
    Thanks Dan

    They may not be getting a lot of pressure right since the weather for the past week has been mainly small craft advisories and gale warnings as it is today. Decided to use the down time to check everything out and fix a few odds and ends.

      When my family and I go out we look for other boats gathered together. Even though we usually go to seward we do take 1 or 2 trips to whittier during the silver season. This what we do and we have sucsess, hope you do to.

          I find my best fishing is at the mouth of Main Bay and around the North East point of Crafton Island. I've also done OK around Pigot Point for Silvers late in the season. PM me for any questions.Good Luck Brah!!

            However the silver fishing out of Seward, 6 fish limit!!, fishing can be CRAZY.
            Weather on the outside of Seward is much more fickle and exposed than my areas in the Sound.
            I have never seen fishing in the Sound as hot as Seward can be.

                I'm going to give Whittier a shot tomorrow to see if we can scare up some silvers somewhere. Tomorrow's the only decent marine forecast in the last 4-5 days, and it looks like it's going to get snotty again for Saturday.

                  Good luck let me know. The snotty weather has kept me away myself.

                    It's been snotty for sure. I haven't seen any fish jumping.

                      Well, the break in the weather that was supposed to happen on Friday wasn't really there. Port Wells, as usual, was a big mixing bowl of slop. We still managed to get out get out and fish around Lake Bay, north and south ends of Perry and the south end of Culross Pass. I wanted to try fishing around the N end of the Pass, but it was a complete mess. No silvers to be had anywhere between our two boats. Still a few humpies around. We caught one 20# halibut on the west side of Applegate Island, among the several other boats that were hiding out from the easterlies.

                        Although I did see a few silvers jump yesterday, it's not looking good at this point. There are a definately a few being caught in the usual places, but numbers seem to be way down. Yesterday, I spoke to a charter captain in Valdez that told me he caught 6 in 6 hours of fishing. I have not tried first hand as we've been trying to halibut fish whenever the weather lets us.

                          Too bad you didn't get the weather break you'd hoped for. What kind of vessel are you driving, MRFISH? I'm all hot to go, but it'll have to calm down a whole bunch for my little rig.

                            My ride is a 24' Wooldridge Alaskan II, really a river boat and uncomfortable out there in much of a chop. It does "okay" in moderate weather if I really slow it down and trim the bow way up. Most of Passage Canal, especially inside of Decision was okay yesterday...but there was a good NE coming down Port Wells and it was consistent 3-4 footers w/ an occasional 5' to keep you on your toes. It was mostly east wind and waves everywhere else we went.

                            I'll shoot you a message next time I'm thinking about going...but that might be if for me and PWS this year...May and June are really my months out there because of the weather and the rest of the year I keep my boat on the rivers where it's more at home.

                              It was so nice earlier in the season that its hard to imagine those same waters getting angry...and staying that way for a good while.
