  1. Anyone have some pointers on catching walleye on calm sunny days? Cloudy days with a decent chop are the best, but when the wind is non-existent and sun is bright, what are your techniques? Prefer to jig and drift but have all the gear to troll as well. Any pointers are appreciated! Thanks

  2. Speed wise ranges from 2.8-3.2 down speed for me anyhow. As for temp anything below 50* is a good point to start but I keep my gear around the 48* mark and seems to be working out for kings and steelies


    Thanks for the input. I seem to always go about 2.5-2.8 and pick up a few kings, but maybe I need to speed it up a bit. Thanks

  3. Dont want to hijack the thread, but this question will help everyone.


    How do the fishing tactics change over the course of the summer? Right now we're jigging and bouncing harnesses. In a few more weeks does it change mostly to a trolling suspended walleyes, or can you bounce jigs off the bottom all summer?

  4. Pretty awful fishing for us this weekend. Same story as most people regarding the kings. Saturday - started in 80 feet and headed NW. Hit 350 feet and headed back south. When we hit 320 FOW the 105 rigger started screaming with a glow spoon. That was our only king of the weekend, and she was a decent 20lber. Not much happened after that and headed back in pretty early. Sunday - Started again in close at about 70 feet and pointed NW. Didnt move a rod, and decided that we would rather go out deep and have some steelhead action rather than try all day for one king. Hit 400+ and had an awesome screen from 60-80 feet down. Put the riggers in that range and had a good steelie bite as long as we stayed out there. Gotta love the acrobatics they pull when they hit. Other that steelies it was real hard fishing. Will be back up next weekend, hopefully can find a few more kings then. 

  5. There are guides everywhere on the Kenai Peninsula. Silvers are real fun, and the reds are probably in their peak run during late july. A fly out charter is definitely worth the price it's so much more than just fishing. We saw a few bull moose, a few big grizzlies, flew over a few glaciers up close, and saw more spawning fish from the air than you can imagine. If money is an issue, someone with a little fishing knowledge and the ability to ask a guy in a tackle shop a few questions can do extremely well without a guide at all. Alaska is an awesome place, simple as that.
