Welcome back to another Ketchikan Fishing Minute.
Unfortunately, I was only able to get on the water one day this week. Erik and I left Clover Pass Resort in a skiff on a wet and windy Wednesday. Temperatures were in the low 50’s, with some gusty wind and a steady rain. We stuck to the area between the lodge and Survey Point, each of us fishing a banana weight set up. Right away, I had a pink salmon in the boat, not very big, but with a great chrome color. There were plenty of other boats in the water around us, including a ton of our skiffs, and it seemed like a number of fish were being caught in the area.
We got started a couple of hours before the tide change and fished through until about an hour after. in all, we pulled in three pink salmon between the two of us, having lost a few at the boat.
Lots of fish being caught by our guests at Silverking Lodge this week, including a 26.4 pound king and a 28.6 pound chinook, both caught from our 14′ Livingston skiffs.
I have some family in town this week, so we will be hitting the water hard all weekend. Check back next Thursday to see how we did on another Ketchikan Fishing Minute.
