Fishing Update – 2017 Week 6 (July 23 – July 29, 2017)

This is shaping up to be a record breaking year! Three weeks in a row now the box count has been impressive. The ride back into Juneau is heavy laden with memories, tired fishing arms, and fillets.

The weather this week has been calm and smooth for the most part. While the year is a little cooler and wetter than normal, the winds have been pleasant.

We had the largest tides of the season this week. Halibut fishing reflected the tides. We still found several fish over 100#s and many in the 30 to 80# range. It remains hard for some to take time to fish halibut when the silvers are jumping.

Salmon continue to be off the charts good. Silvers are feisty and getting bigger each week. Reds are building and the chums are starting into their spawning colors. Boats are catching silvers daily with a mix of pinks, chums, and reds. In the evening guests are enjoying casting for pinks off the point as well.

Thank you all for another great week at Doc’s. I hope to see you all again “reel” soon. The 2017 season still has a few openings in late August and early September if you want to get in on the fun. The 2018 season is booking fast so give Lynda and Lisa a call in the office to get your next trip scheduled.

Happy fishing,
Mark
