Sitka Fishing Report: September 9, 2019
Thursday this week delivered the best salmon actions we’ve seen yet in 2018. The our boats that ran north found fast action on silvers with limits landed by mid-morning along with a few kings thrown in to spice the action. Those of us that went south found slim pickings at the Cape, but ran north and got in on the coho action catching limits or near limits by the end of the day. The silvers are bright, strong and good size for late July with a fair number over 10 pounds. Halibut fishing was good offshore. We enjoyed the sight of humpback whales cruising past as we fished. The ocean was dead calm but foggy all day. The current action and calm seas translate to an excellent Sitka summer days on the water.
