  1. One other thing. The second run kings last year on the Kenai was one of the worst returns ever recorded. Don't expect that river to be opened for the targeting of kings for many years. It's a mess. Kisutch
  2. The two easily accessed towns are Ketchikan and Sitka. Alaska air drops you into both. My choice would be Craig, Alaska on Prince of Wales Island. That is either a ferry ride or float plane trip from Ketchikan. You might not get the bear viewing you seek but the whole southeast part of the state is stunning. The Kenai peninsula is just run over with people now and just not the same. Kisutch
  3. Southeast Alaska is where you want to be for kings these next two summers. They had great recruitment the last two years with this year being exceptional. The young kings were looking like they were finding plenty of forage. I feel that 30 and 40 lbs fish are going to be very common down that way. Anywhere along this coast will get it done. The halibut situation is a GAF fishery for large butts. This is not cheap. You are paying for a commercial quota that was bought buy your charter outfit. They did raise the size limit for non residents last year that really helped putting more white meat on cleaning tables. But for a true "barn door" and being non resident the GAF program is the only way being guided. Kisutch
  4. Bluffers park east of Toronto. You will have the the lake to yourself in the evenings. Oh and that bottom structure. Kisutch
  5. A lake trout can swim that distance? Which research boat took it for a ride? This study is a pure waste of my tax dollars. Kisutch
  6. They are doing extremely well on Michigan. I have personally talked to the Wisconsin bio running there seeforellen program. They are quite happy with their trophy brown trout fishery. Check out the Racine Salmon a rama website. They still put up some gorgeous fish. Kisutch
  7. Been fishing both lakes for over 30 years. First trip to lake o was in 1987. What I witnessed on my graph was truly remarkable. 100 foot plus school of alewife. The water clarity was nil which allowed those big fish to move into trolling spreads and not be spooked. Your lake is now totally out of balance on the predator prey situation. Over on Michigan my managers were very lucky after 2012 that natural recruitment took a serious crap or we would be looking like huron. Lake Michigan over the last three years have definitely produced larger fish than lake o but the numbers of matures has been greatly reduced. Thus making us having to work much harder for our fish.

  8. My roses have never looked better. I appreciate my tax dollars going towards a worthy cause. The feds are out to destroy your fishery it has not sunk in yet. Kisutch Hey Trump Build That Wall Lake Michigan Lake Trout Gillnetters Association Join now I speak from first hand knowledge
  9. I see the feds are giving you guys an additional 300,000 Lakers this year and the next, and the next.... We are hammered with 2000 consent decree which is up for a redo in 2020. I can't wait to see how we get slammed with this one. After BKD struck our fishery I started fishing the north shore out of Bluffers in the mid 80's. What a fishery at the time. The Canadians didn't fish the evening's and to have that structure all to yourself was just awesome. 100 foot schools of alewife and absolutely no visibility in the water column. Truly special.

  10. Over here on lake Michigan we get stuffed with over 3 million worthless Lake Trout every year. It is absolutely deplorable what the Feds are doing to our silver fish fishery. I have been to many meetings and nobody listens to what the real fishermen actually want. As a matter of fact I now club every laker and leave them for the gulls. That is how tired of the situation I am. My main biologist for lake Michigan owns a cartop boat with an 8 horse kicker. This is what I deal with.

  11. Was that the same Italo who got nailed for filming in a closed section of River because he could not help himself. Kisutch
  12. Esox I'm looking for 28's in black and white tape color doesn't matter.
  13. I'm not a fishery biologist, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. That there fish is a coho. Noway that is a king. That is one helluva of a fish.
