Alaska Fishing Trip Video

I was given the opportunity to go to Alaska earlier this month, and had an amazing time catching King and Coho Salmon along with Lingcod and halibut.

Ya that was a cool video. I'm surprised by the number of boats. I was expecting a stream video as you don't see many off shore vids up there. Pretty cool and I'm sure quite the adventure.

Very nice,, Kings are great ,,,, I've been fortunate myself few years back when the Kenia was good.. but it's a pity that she's not producing Kings like she used too.. areas like you fished are becoming more popular. thanks for sharing,,

Nice video. My wife and I were ther to fish in 2013. We stayed on a 58 foot Hatteras tor 5 nights. Lots of Kings and Cohos trolling. When we drifted for halibut, you would catch one every time the line made it to the bottom. Sometimes we’d catch 2 at a time on the same lure.

Just got back from the Kenai. Halibut fishing wasn't very productivbe as weather kept boats in but Coho was amazing and then there were the pinks just for catching fun

I got to witness the opening of pink salmon season in the Icy Straits. We were surrounded by purse seiners. When they hauled that net on deck it held many tons of salmon. They had aircraft locating schools of pinks and big processing ships anchored up in inlets.

Funny thing happened one night. Every evening we’d anchor up the boat at dinner time and in protected backwater. Summertime in Alaska it never really gets what we would call dark. I went to my cabin at 10 pm for the night. A little after midnight I woke up to bright lights and the sound of diesel engines. A big mother ship had anchored 100 yards from us and there was a line of boats waiting to unload their catch. The processing boat had a huge vacuum unit on it and sucked to salmon out of the holds of the purse seining vessels. I went on deck for a couple of hours to watch the process. So much for a peaceful secluded cove.
