Alaska Salmon and Halibut fishing report for Kingfisher Lodge, Craig Alaska, August 12th, 2012. Today we went Halibut fishing in the afternoon and did not salmon fish although reports were that fishing for Coho salmon has remained good. The goal today was to bring our daughters out to procure our white fish for the winter months and so I decided to bring them to a spot that I have let many fish go that I could not keep on a charter with the 45″ to 68″ slot size. We were not disappointed when once arriving we landed a nice Ling cod, then 2 nice 80 pound butts, another large Ling cod, and one very large halibut we let go for a couple of reasons, one being that the larger fish are females with many eggs and the other is they are tougher and the flesh is dryer and not as desirable at the table.
