Watched it on your blog earlier, great video!

Hi Nate,

That brought some memories here too, I used to go over every year but have been too busy here for the past three seasons. The largest silver salmon I've ever seen are normal and the other species are a treat also. I'm thinking 2015 I'll be back there.

Have you ever fished Sultry Cove? Or Caught Dogs in the salt! I have never had a fish pull harder than a Dog in the salt! If you go in 2015 I might have to Book a trip!

I had some fun there as well, fished the big coho river and was very impressed. The average size of those coho is almost on par with some of our best trophy coho waters here in BC.

The very cool part about Kodiak though is stripping flies for these bruiser coho in tidal lakes, we don't have that option here. Next time I am brining my flat bottom car topper!

I've kept a 40' boat in the harbor for twenty years now... Yeah, we get some good fish! I especially like some of the saltwater fly fishing. A couple 80# halibut on a 12 wt in shallow water have convinced me it is almost not fun... Sight fishing the mouths of salmon streams.

Flats where one can fish for tailing coho...

Monster lingcod on flies...

The Buskin River right next to the airport frequently produces fish which will average 15 pounds... That is determined by seiners off the mouth catching boatloads that are literally weighed. There are a few other Kodiak streams that produce the same size fish. I have never heard of any stream anywhere else coming close to that average.
