Why do you haul your boats all the way from Anchorage to Seward or Homer when Whittier is just 60 miles away? Whats the difference?
sure, thats where I was going with that....
In all seriousness Seward by all measures has more and better fishing. Better king/silver/halibut. I do quite well fishing in PWS but I run at least 50 miles each time I go out. I do so because I catch fish out there and I like to run that far. My boat is an escape from every day life ~ meaning people everywhere I turn. The very last thing I want is to escape to a bunch of other boats. Where I fish I see maybe 1 -4 boats and usually nobody fishing right around me. That is Alaska, that is fishing, and that is what I like. Sure I could catch more fish with burning less diesel, but that's not why I escape to the water.
