I just returned from three day fishing trip(07-20/07-24) in Kodiak Island, AK.
As we had rain and strong wind during our entire stay, we had to fish in protected area on a charter boat.
Though we didn't catch any trophy halibut as our fishing spots are restricted by bad weather, we caught tons of halibut on jigs. It was fun to play with 4 - 6 oz Spro bucktails.
After limiting out halibut, we concentrated on king salmon. We trolled using downriggers and spoons to locate salmon and once located, we jigged together. No bait was allowed for salmon fishing.
