On April 29, Captains Ryan and DJ spent the morning fishing and brought three king salmon to the boat. They also admit to missing a few bites that were definitely kings. The ocean was dead calm and they found nice size halibut on the bottom while mooching for salmon. They saw lots of baitfish on the sounder, which is promising very promising.
Here’s the latest Sitka fishing report from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game: “Recent reports received so far indicate king fishing is improving and good in certain locations. Most of the effort has been expended within Sitka Sound, with limits being caught. King salmon fishing in Sitka area waters should continue to improve through mid to late-May.”
If you have the urge to catch a nice Alaskan king salmon along with halibut, lingcod, and rockfish, AU has some prime discounted openings in May and June. There’s no time like the present. Give us a shout.
