ALASKA: hot summer fishing action out of the coasts
Here the last fishing report from Tim Berg in Alaska:
"To say the fishing was good on Opening Day (July 1st) of Ling cod season would be an understatement.
Our boats in both Seward & Homer caught "Combo Limits" of Gigantic Lingcod (14 Big Lings over 60 Pounds) plus limits of big bright Coho ( Silver Salmon) and in addition Limits of Halibut, Black Rockfish, Yellow - Eye Snapper and Pacific Cod.
Seas were calm and the skies were wet, but this didn't dampen the smoking hot fishing action had by all aboard. Angler Terry Gonsalves hoists a 68 lb.
Ling Cod up for a quick pictured. Fishing was just incredible for every angler as the action was non-stop and produced limits of Ling Cod as well as many other species.
Capt. Chris Boyd is all smiles as he holds up a #26.6 Lb. Yellow Eye Rockfish taken by angler Fred Houtman of Boise, Idaho.
Fred was fishing onboard the vessel Tia' Rose, part of Tim Berg's Alaskan Fishing Adventures fleet when he hooked this record book fish. The Trophy Fish was hooked using a Yellow and Orange 16 ounce Bomber Jig. "I was not sure what I hooked as everyone on the boat was hooked up to Lings, rockfish and halibut. When I first saw this monster I knew it would qualify as a State Trophy.
This is a fish of a lifetime - could not have done it without Capt. Chris and his great hardworking crew!!
