went down to homer this passed weekend to start off the fishing year and do some boat maintenance. Fished for halibut saturday for 3 hours and pulled this one out of the water. I reeled up my line and said its time to move and right before my buddy grabbed is rod out of the rod holder the tip bent to the water. went 55" and ~85 pounds.  Went out the next day an20190608_140630.thumb.jpg.484ea05cf8fa7eb24edb7d21f2f8f844.jpgd loaded up on some real nice rock fish and another 30 pound halibut. next trip down will be 4th july to try to snag some salmon and get some more rock fish (they make the best tacos)

Nice fish! My wife and I are going to Alaska mid july for two weeks of fishing. Starting out of Seward and hopefully finding some Halibut like you got there and then off to Sterling to see if the Reds are running on the Kenai.

 

One trip out of Seward a couple years ago the Silver salmon were like torpedoes 20 ft under the boat while halibut fishing. I kept the first two halibut I caught so I could start catching silvers and pinks sight fishing. What a great time! The captain then took us to a 40ft rock pile and we filled out on rockfish in about 15 minutes. The fish out there is delicious! We are really looking forward to next month.

I have no idea whats wrong with them. Maybe some alaska knock off... gotta have some type of beer to drink on the boat other then high octane IPA's.  Reds should be running mid july we hit bings on the way down to try and get a few of the russian river fish that pass through and i caught one and lost a few more. Seward is a great place for ocean silvers! catch some and cut the heads off and use them for halibut bait if your lookin for biggins.  Them kiltchers think they are very remote as well yet we see them in the local coffee shops down there all the time, figure that one out.

I've got some nice photos of Grizzlys on the Russian. 

 

We were using the pinks caught out on the ocean as bait for lingcod. A close to 2ft minnow for fishing, you know that you aren't fishing crappies! Maybe we would have had better luck with heads.

ADFG raised the red salmon limit to 9 fish a day for the russian river since we have over 60,000 reds past the weir already when we are normally only around 10,000 fish at this time.  Decided 7 was a good number after 2 hours of fishing and called it quits.  Also got a free piercing!  One of the reds i caught had 3 other hooks in it from people snagging them.  I grabbed the fish and it flopped around and sent one of the hooks through my finger.  Cut the hook pulled it through and caught 4 more fish.

Got the family out of homer and we went out snagging for reds.  Look for the schools toss your weighted treble hook and let her rip.

Next trip out will be with the parents when they come up late july.  Going to hopefully find them some rock fish, halibut and silvers.

We are starting in the chugach state park hiking and kayaking for 2 days,  sort of in your area of Eagle River? Then to Seward staying at the military resort. We will fish out the last half of next week there. We are taking a couple charters to Montigue island area and a six pack half day run for silvers around Resurection bay. Then we are off to Sterling for our second week where we rent the basement of a house to stay at and fish out their backyard on the Kenai. I am looking forward to a stop in Soldotna and stock up on gear at the hardware store. They have it all. 

Good luck to you and your family!

Sounds like a great trip! from what i have heard the silvers are comming in thick just outside the bay right now! if you havent seen and have a hour or so to kill go check out the mouth of the kenai where everyone dip nets.  its crazy down there. Take main street in kenai towards the river and you can see everything since you way up on the bluff.

    • Ben - The Accountant Keanu - John Wick Brad - A River Runs Through It Robert - Jeremiah Johnson Chevy - Caddy Shack Nick - Leaving Las Vegas   2nd picks cuz they’re close: Ben - Good Will Hunting or The Town Keanu - Point Break Brad - Legends of the Fall Robert - The Natural Chevy - Vacation Nick - Gone in 60 Seconds
    • Find this on Amazon and you can use Bluetooth. It has 2 different outputs. 3.5mm and RCA:   Logitech Bluetooth Audio Adapter for Bluetooth Streaming
    • Ben Affleck  -  Dazed and Confused Keanu Reeves - Speed Brad Pitt - Sleepers Robert Redford - The Natural Chevy Chase - Nation Lampoon Christmas   Nicolas Cage - The Rock
    • ok I got it figured out, not sure its the best solution but it works.   I thought the 3.5mm jack on the jbl speaker was an output, but its an input so completely scrapped that. I was hoping to go that route so it would charge my phone at the same time.   So instead I opted for this option instead:     It works and I have left and right stereo and its not mono. It sounds ok but I may splurge for a 3.5mm to  digital input cable and see if its worth it.
    • Armageddon Constantine Inglourious Basterds(sp) Jeremiah Johnson The vacation movies   And I don't remember the name of the movie  but Nicholas Cage played a soldier in the Crusades who had to transport an accused witch to another town. Ron Perlman was his partner   Besides fishing, going to movies is another one of my joys in life  
    • I'm gonna list 5 Actors, if ya care to play, list your favorite movie that they have appeared in.   Ben Affleck  Keanu Reeves Brad Pitt Robert Redford Chevy Chase   *time out* Bonus 6th pick..... Nicolas Cage
    • I want to connect my iPhone to an old home theater receiver in my garage I am sure there is lots of ways to do this just trying to think of what would be best.   I have an iPhone with no headphone jack. Not a problem I currently put it on a dock with a speaker. That dock has a 3.5mm out that I should be able to convert into something that would work as an input to the receiver?     Here is the back of the receiver, its an old ONKYO that I had set up as a home theater many years ago. Its been collecting dust in the basement and I still have all of the speakers so I thought, hey I could really jam out in the man cave with some good speakers if I can get everything hooked up correctly   I could go 3.5mm to rca (red and white) and I think that would get me stereo and not mono?   Or could I go 3.5mm to digital optical or 3.5mm to coaxial? See all my options circled in red below?      
    • For this episode of the Duffman & Wanderer bass show I present to you the third week of August.   Wed is my usual day to get out. I figure it's before the Thurs night leagues and gives some space from the weekend warriors. Wife had a work party at our house, bonus water time for me. Too bad it was on one of "those" days. Sloooow. Talked to a regular, he agreed it was slow and chimed in "Two days ago though" Argh, that's all I needed to hear after only catching 3 bass in 5 hours. One went 4lbs, a 2ish, and a sub pounder........those little fish aren't usually where I'm fishing.   Gave it another go today...........short biters for me all week. Dealing with some pea green soup water, today was already clearer than Wed. That 4 was blind in one eye, seemed to be a lateral line strike. Maybe that's why they are short?   Had some action today at least, a smaller class of fish,  2.5 - 3 lb range. A half dozen, missed a couple, had two pop off, seen one.......20" class fish. Did the usual #@&%$,!, and casted again. I think I need to sharpen some hooks.  Still cranking, although I jig n pigged today for a tad......I never jig n pig. Forcing myself to try other things.   It's always interesting observing fellow fishermen. There's pressure everywhere these days. You recognize folks that look like they know what they are doing, and others that don't have a clue. I think I seen a 12" screen on a kayak this week!. I watch what people are using on a spot, and once they move on, I have no problem moving in. Fishing seems cyclical, some years are better than other's. That's fishing, hope you are out on the days when the "HOT" bite is going down.    Tune in next week for another episode.
    • To bad your not up here in Minnesota.  There are Ice houses on lots for sale all over this state.  You could stop in with a tape and get the dimensions you need.
