Im Back and Spoiled :)

Well I have been back from Sitka-home of the world's greatest salmon fishing, for a few days. I had a great time, saw some amazing wildlife and caught lots and lots of kings and silvers. We had a 47 pound 'nook to our boat one day and another boat anchored up about 50 yards to the west of us had a 67, another 50+ and were spooled by another.

Sadly though, the coho were never shallow enough to pursue with the bugrod. Every once in a while we would mark fish higher up at like 30-40 feet but in general we were hitting the fish in 100 to 200 feet of water. High pressure followed by calm seas put these fish down.

The humpies were everywhere and I had the perfect oppurtunity to throw my #5 at schools of thousands of them but after catching kings and coho all day, humpies were the last thing on my mind.

Now I have to go back to fishing...not catching.

I hear the SF Sky calling my name.

BTW-If anyone is intrested in some amazing saltwater salmon fishing, whether it be with the fly or traditional gear, let me know. Ill give 'ya the scoop.
