We had a small group of fisherman out for a full day halibut charter. Wednesday’s tide was one of my favorites for a specific spot I like to fish in Prince William Sound. This particular spot always seems to start off slow so we assured the clients that if they were patient, the area would produce 90% of the time 50% of the time. They bought it and sure enough the big halibut started showing up about an hour after the tide switch. We landed 7 big fish at our first fishing spot and lost one over 100lbs due to a line rubbing on the side of the boat. It’s always a good idea to hold your rod away from the boat when a fish makes a mad dash towards the boat..FYI.
All in all, it was Alaska fishing at its finest. We had a blast and we look forward to Wednesday’s trip. The weather system that has kept us all on the dock for the past few days has finally passed. Hopefully the good weather will hold up for a few weeks now. The Halibut Derby just started today, June 1st and some nice fish have been hitting the dock..
Make sure you purchase your Derby Tickets on the boat in the morning. IF YOU DON’T, I WILL BUY ONE FOR YOU AND PUT IT TOWARDS A NEW TRUCK 🙂 but seriously..buy a ticket because we will be spending a majority of our day in the gulf searching for derby size fish on our full day halibut trips through June.
