  • Labor Day decided to be a bit testy this year. Winds pounded the wilting fireweed generating mini blizzards of white seedling parachutes spinning through the air in search of new beginnings while whitecap seas prematurely ended fishing for many of the small boat crowd. I’m not trying to imply that...

  • While I was embattled with an obnoxious woodpecker that was practicing wicked marimba beats on our logs this morning, a huge flock of cranes soared over the cabin and seemed to cheer the little *&&^%$ on.   I didn’t think much about it until after the pile-driving beak with feath...

  • As August starts to slowly glissade (“butt scoot” for those of you who consider outdoor recreation as playing “Big Fish” on an iPad) itself down the slippery slope toward fall, there’s still time to add to your stash of smoked, canned, frozen, fermented, pickled, honey cured and super secr...

  • Flat Island and Point Pogibshi have been heating up for silvers lately, so maybe those reports from boats fishing elsewhere and claiming things have been as exciting as a 20-mile speed-lumbering race for sumo wrestlers when it comes to finding the aggressive aerialists are about to change....

  • Lately there have been growing rumors about silvers lurking outside The Fishing Hole.  Until noon Monday I thought those tales were being generated by fishermen walking too close to some of the campsites in the area that have more smoke pouring out of bongs than their campfires. I scouted the l...

  • This summer the “Reeling ‘Em In” gmail inbox has been busier than a confessional booth on the day after Mardi Gras.  There have been questions about fishing techniques, how to tell the difference between certain species and when and where to fish. We even had a request for directions to a...

  • Anyone cruising by the Fishing Hole recently must be thinking they would come across more people if they dropped in on a private Pebble mine, executives only, appreciation party for the Alaska Wilderness League. What can I say? It has been so slow that you can find more action sitting at home watchi...

  • The vast staff here at the headquarters of “Reeling ’Em In” has received a plethora of inquires as to when the first silvers are going to make their summer debut at The Fishing Hole. How in the *&*%^ should I know? We thought that this year’s batch of kings would start trickling inside a...

  • Heat and I get along like a snow cone in a sauna, so last month was no chocolate éclair on the buffet of life for me. Most of the 30 days seemed like something resembling that particular dessert that I inadvertently stepped in rather than enjoyed. Yeah, yeah, I know there are a lot of you who relis...

  • By the time you read this, the tides should be almost perfect for cutting some respectable critters out the growing herds of halibut cruising around Kachemak Bay and Cook Inlet.  The flats will be looking for trouble by trying to filch sushi from the holiday-week buffets being served up on circ...
