Silver Solstice

By June 22, 2011No Comments

The first day of summer brought the fish of summer with a terrific silver bite that came on the heels of a wide open king bite. Long time AU friend Greg Pepin, plus Val Jensen, Rusty Lyon, and Rusty’s daughter Kelly Lyon, fished with Captain Greg and started the day with by hooking and releasing about a dozen kings while landing the limit of four. Then they headed offshore and caught a limit of halibut. That was followed by the first limit of silvers of the season – 24 of them in a couple hours. Limits of kings, halibut, and sivlers were also brought to the dock by Alan Brobeck party fishing with Captain Phil and the Glen Burns party fishing with Captain David. The silvers have been around for weeks, but nothing like the numbers seen on the first day of summer. Are the silvers here to stay? It is early for these kinds of numbers, but we’re hoping. Once again, the ocean was flat calm and the sun shone brightly. It really doesn’t get any better on the north Pacific.

First limit of silvers this year caught by Val Jensen, Rusty Lyons, Kelly Lyons and Greg Pepin with Captain Greg.
