  • Juneau Fishing 2011

    It's that time of year again folks. Time for the annual Juneau Fishing thread. Things should be starting up here real soon. I was taking a walk on a beach last Sunday and saw 2 dollies in the saltwater. First one was just a swirl and I discounted it as tide or my eyes playing tricks on me. The second was confirmed by my wife. I'm thinking this weekend I'll try to kick things off. Anyone else getting the "itch"?
    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Yea........I got the "itch" but will have to scratch and suffer another 75 days before I get any relief. Meanwhile, I dose myself with AK saltwater fishing remedy daily. Care to share any good King spots around Hoonah, Gustavus, or Glacier Bay areas?

    Or better yet, where to jig a sabiki rig for herring besides Pt. Adolphus? Does Ocean Beauty have herring out front and allow making bait near them?

    TIA- Steve-74 days and counting down

      Its this time of year that I really miss my Juneau days. Prep the boat starting now ~ 4 am wake ups for the quick run to n. douglas and ferry terminal for a hour herring soak then off to work. Man those were long days. A week spent up excursion inlet in mid may. Runs to deer harbor.

      Country roads, take me home........................... at least for the month of May.

        One of the perks of moving back north...


        Still I miss Juneau a lot
        I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

            I wouldn't call it a great spot, but I usually catch something off of Cannery Point, just north of Hoonah. I have caught kings, coho, chums, and pinks there.

            Pt Couverden often has some herring hanging around.

              Definitely itching for spring kings. I even thought about tying some hooks this morning (but the thought has passed now). I'd like to find a new motor for my scanoe - the electric one is just too much trouble with hauling the battery and always having to recharge it. I don't imagine I'll try fishing for at least a month yet though - still have grouse to concentrate on for the moment.

                Have view straight down the channel from above the H.S. - smoke on the water this morning. Big 'ol breakers battering Pt. Arden. Did see a couple of boats trolling at the Ferry Terminal yesterday afternoon. I still have skiing to do. Ski area closes on April 10th, so I will test run the boat the next weekend. Saw the pic on the front page of the Vampire of them installing the finger float at the N.D. boat launch. It will get hammered this week by the northerlys. Bad call by the Harbors Dept.

                I'm with Soggy - blue grouse is a priority before kings. Some trips I'll do both, but kings don't really start picking up until the grouse season is over. Going to the range to shoot my .22 WMRF and Fireball within the hour.

                  Out side Hoonah try going around Spasky Island for kings, there are a couple ridges that go out from the island that have great bait fish holding and king holding areas. Good Luck.

                    Gave the channel a try last weekend out of boredom. Didn't see any dollies or fry yet. Any day now, this warm weather will get things moving.
                    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.
