Mixed bag in Seward
Posted by AKCAPT on May 15 2005
Dean,

You choice of dates is a good one. The first run of smaller silvers is usually in Pony Cove by early July or even earlier. Lingcod is open July 1 so they are fair game outside the bay.
Halibut should be available. Don't run far in a private boat. Head from Pony Cove due east and fish the 45 fathom rises behind Pilot Rock for limits of chickens with a shot at a larger fish onthe tide switch or soak salmon heads a couple of miles south of Barwell I. in 315 - 330' of water for a shot at a big halibut. If you wait it out, you will catch one.
Running 60 miles down the coast to Montague in a private boat with the Gulf of Alaska weather as unpreditable as it is and fuel at 2.75/gallon is about at dumb a move as you can make.You will be paying more to fish two or three fishermen on your private boat than a charter costs.
Fishing at Montague is not as relaible as it used to be. There are plenty of halibut closer unless you are trying to catch limits for 14 fishermen. That makes fishing closer to home a bit tougher.

Hope this helps
