Had some good trips in the past week. In fact they were all good as the fishing is great now. We caught yellowfin chumming, live baiting, trolling, and casting poppers and caught them all off one secret floater. Started out the run with Bill young and family from texas. We took the glacier bay out and hooked up on a nice double as soon as we got there.

Kept the drifts going and fish coming as we had fish on most of the day. Of course we broke off some nice fish but all in all the crew did a great job. We were using chunks of blackfin on 50 pound leader and 5/0 frenzy circle hooks. We also got one yellowfin and one nice dolphin on a popper. We trolled around a weedline and picked up one more good dolphin on an alien and a wahoo on a blue/,mackeral rapala

The next day I had a crew from the midwest as we took Stu and Bill fishing again on the glacier bay. Caught some threadfin and headed offshore as soon as we got there we had a double hookup and when we got the fish right under the boat they just wrapped each other off and before I could get it straight they broke us off. No big deal as we kept pounding the fish all day on live bait, chum and I even broke out some squid chains and picked up a nice pair of yellows trolling.

The last day I had robert Haran and his father in law Poppie on his 24 world cat. We headed on out with the same plan in mind after they kinda well overslept. Left the dock at 830 and made the long run out there and started trolling which only produced a pair of blackfin which were wisely put to use as chum because we made six drifts and caught five yellowfin and one dolpin on the chunks. As usual we were drifting the upcurrent side and using 50 pound leader and 5/0 frenzy hooks. We ended up the day with the five yellows, a dolphin, jpgand one very worn out poppie.
