Kings Continue to Rule

By August 14, 2011No Comments

It’s mid-August and the king run of 2011 seems a long way from running out of gas. Magdalena Lee fishing with Captain Ben Baumann landed a 38 pounder on Saturday afternoon. A number of fish over 30 pounds were caught on Sunday including a 32 pounder released by Bruce Erikson fishing with your blogger. Bruce’s 8 year old grandson Caden O’Malley caught a limit of silvers, a 20 pound king and a halibut today on his first day in Sitka. The weather continued calm in the morning and most boats got limits or near limits of silvers to go with the excellent king action. The wind picked up in the afternoon and the forecast for tomorrow is rain and wind, no one’s favorite, but we’ll find lee shores to fish and the rain may very well bring in more silvers.
