Alaska sport fishing report for Kingfisher Lodge, Craig, Prince of Wales Island, Alaska. August 22nd, 23rd & 24th the weather cooperated in the wind department as we had no wind issues or big waves as the group before which means that the whole summer minus a few days we had better than average weather by far in fact the best from my point of view in 20 years. Fishing continues to be outstanding to say the least for Coho’s and bottom fish. This group we did not focus on King salmon but only Silver salmon and Bottom fish. All three days Coho limits for 12 anglers were accomplished in a few hour each day and bottom fishing we put in more hours but ended up with spectacular catching and the photo’s from the last day show the finale of the 12 member group. 2013 will go down in my book as probably one of the best years of fishing for the past 20 years and maybe in the future we will also look back as a top year.

Alaska sport fishing report for Kingfisher Lodge, Craig, Prince of Wales Island, Alaska.  August 13th we left the lodge with light winds and flat water, overcast skies, and high in the mid 60’s which was a great day to catch King salmon, Silver salmon and bottom fish. We started at the Pineapple rock which was awful dead looking and left after 15 minutes or so then moved north and dropping in tripled on beautiful King salmon, then it was non stop catching of big Coho’s or Silver salmon (most of these fish are averaging 10 pounds) until our limit was met at 8:30 a.m. Joel’s boat landed the largest trophy Silver of the year to date, here at Kingfisher Lodge at just over 18 pounds by Clint Olsen. Halibut fishing proved to be a great day as we landed several in the 40 to 45 inch range as well as some beauties at 60 or so inches that we had to let go due to the slot limit but the guys got a kick out of bringing them up. All these fish we turn loose are still full of vigor as they speed to the bottom or just swim off as we release them which makes us all feel good knowing they will survive another day and continue to perpetuate.
