Silvers today, Kings tomorrow

Drew Johnston with a nice July King salmon

Mid-week saw limits or near limits of silvers aboard many of the boats in the AU fleet. The only inhibiting factor was some rougher weather on Wednesday, which gave way to much less wind and progressively better seas on Thursday and Friday. The kings were hit or miss on Wednesday and Thursday, some boats got plenty, others got few. The Johnston party, fishing with yours truly brought in 20 silvers, one chum, four pinks, and a king on Thursday. We went out Friday expecting easy silvers and a search for kings. We got the oppositie with 7 kings to the boat by 8:30 AM, including a wild triple header with the Johnston sons, Matt (13), Drew (17) and Alex (20). We only found three silvers. After the king action, we headed offshore and boated a limit of halibut up to 45 pounds. Such is the nature of mid-July – a wonderful mix of king, silver, chum, and pink salmon along with good halibut fishing. Which fish will be most abundant on any given day can only be found out one way. Go fishing.
