    Pinks are in. Seiners were doing their thing over at Allison Point and the entire port. Watched one boat at the city dock haul in several hundred. If pinks are your thing, they are here.

      Thanks, Dave. You just answered my question. With a successful Klutina sockeye/king season coming to a close, I figured I'd head south from Copper Center, and grab some dime bright females for my smoker and mama's canning. May as well do it while I'm down this way.

        I was at Knowles Head today. Fishing was slow but the sonar and jumpers are telling my that there are silvers around.

          Chartered out today. Fishing was none existent in the morning and slow in the afternoon. In defense of the charter: weather was rough crossing orca and worse in the gulf. Had to go to Plan B. Captain worked hard but all fish that were caught were small.
          rough ride coming and going. Still: had a good time with my son and good memories.

            Right now, our weather is horrible. The forecast is for nothing but rain. Seiners seem to be doing well on pinks. I've seen one report that someone caught silvers in the Valdez Arm but it seems early. The monsoon season seems to be upon us.

              I will be there on Thursday fishing through Sunday. I hope to be adding info. I heard a nice halibut was caught in the narrows, and some silvers by Goose Island and by Glacier Island.

                Goose and Glacier are good possibilities but don't discount Bligh or 17-mile beach first before running that far. People drift the Narrows with bait and do pick up halibut. I assisted a guy in a 20' skiff one year. He hooked a 160# fish with no harpoon, gaff or way to kill it on Sept 15th, last day of shrimping. We dropped one member of our crew off on his boat with a gaff. Got the fish tied off for him. We left and four hours later he got it back to Valdez as he had to drag it back. It happens. My biggest, 159# cane from Anderson Bay.

                  There are lots of silvers at Glacier, and plenty in the vicinity of/inside buoy 9. A few chum and some kings in the mix, too. Wednesday was crazy; I couldn't catch anything but kings...all day long; Thursday, lots of silvers but only a couple kings. I didn't find any silvers as close as Sawmill, but didn't fish very hard that close-in. There may be silvers near Sawmill/Potato by now.

                    I just got back from Glacier Is. myself. Brought home four silver's. Missed quite a few at the boat. Using Brad's lures but I think my treble hooks are a little too big. Love the Brad's though. Put a piece of oil absorbent pad in it with Mikes Glow Herring oil and fished all day. I saw quite a few caught with the limited number of boats out.

                      I assume you got the 4th one north of Freemantle on the way back...

                        No. We had two people on board. I know the area and the rules.

                          We wouldn't want people less familiar with the rules to get the wrong impression, eh?

                            All sounds good, I am coming down on Tuesday. Last week the rain and waves kept us from having any luck other than a few shrimp. Looking forward to some cohos and kings. See you fellas on the water.
