Alaska Kingfisher Lodge fishing report for July 18th thru July 20th, 2015. The past three days fishing with two families of 11 members brought lots of fun and laughs with our youngest at 7 years old although not the youngest in our fishing history. It wasn’t all about catching fish with these groups as the kids loved catching fish but they mostly enjoyed getting back to the lodge and swinging on the tree swing over the water, swimming and running in the woods. Catching fish was very productive though except the first day when all the kids had anti sea sick medicine and they had a really hard time keeping their eyes open to fish but after that got straightened out catching picked up. So for King salmon their seems to be plenty of them around if you have a bit of luck and are persistent can catch both limits of Kings as well as silvers. The Coho or Silvers are in good numbers landing limits again if patient and persistent. Halibut fishing remains good. David Stutz loves to look for big fish (been on Wicked Tuna twice for big Tuna, Australia for Black Marlin and Kingfisher Lodge for big halibut) Dave wanted the 80″ or bigger butt and so we went a looking landing the largest at 150 pounds landed by Debra Jordan, and many in the 100 pound and under but finding not close to the 80 inch mark. A King salmon derby contender was landed yesterday by Wayne Baxter from Klawock at 64 pounds (fishing with Rich Manning who owns Catch a King lodge). Wayne is a huge contributor and organizer for Craig-Klawock King salmon derby so I really hope Wayne wins, Good job Wayne and Rich!
The past three days was a hoot and look forward for another year with these folks. Check out the Facebook page for more pictures and thanks for checking in with us.
