Day five of fishing inside Resurrection Bay. This weather system is starting to wear on us all, it has been a full 5 days without making it to the Halibut grounds. The storm that has been punishing the Gulf has also put quite a bit of pressure on the Silvers inside the bay. Every charter boat plus recreational fisherman participating in the Seward Salmon Derby have been bringing in Salmon in spectacular numbers. Nothing over #16lbs has hit the weigh station yet but everyday of the derby a bigger one has topped it.
It was a rough one during our full day Salmon trip. Luckily our crew today was a tough themselves, they fished through the wind and rain and although we worked hard for our fish we pulled off a pretty good load. Our second spot was far more productive than the first. We were lucky enough to catch 11 Halibut while on anchor as well as 55 Silvers Salmon.
The weather for tomorrow is looking like another day trapped in the bay, I hope the Silvers will put out one more good day of fishing for us. I’ll keep you
posted on the progress..FISH ON!
