  • I’ve done a little less scouting this week due to the fact that the Summer Olympics have kicked into gear. When our outstanding U.S. athletes are on the air my lures aren’t flying through it. My bride has even commented that I’m suddenly showing enough sense to come in out of the rain once in ...

  • There has been a plethora of stories written over the years about family vacation visitations. Some are humorous. Others reveal the real scientific explanation for premature graying. Like everyone else, when company rolls in, we try to make sure our guests are exposed to as much of the dazzling sigh...

  • I was scouting for jumpers along the east and west side beaches of the Spit when I overheard two men squabbling about a fish one of them had just landed outside the entrance to The Fishing Hole. One squawking rooster was adamant it was a silver while the other had steam rolling out of his cranial or...

  • Correction: This column has been updated to show that fishing is not allowed at Deep Creek. The chinook run at The Fishing Hole has been fluctuating lately and may slow down a bit with the smaller tides rolling in but, as of 03:30 a couple of days ago, the fish bowl was full. Unfortunately, the crit...

  • When fishing starts heating up in the pristine waters of the lower Kenai it’s akin to being in Vegas and rolling consecutive sevens from dusk to dawn with the payoffs in pure silver and greenbacks. Last week combo charters were nailing both shiny kings and moss colored halibut while the rivers sur...

  • W ow, what an incredibly gorgeous Memorial Day weekend even though the wind and overcast chilled things down on Monday. For those of you who can barely recall it, fishing for the major part of three days was downright respectable for competent piscatorians and rather dismal for those doing shooters ...

  • N ormally I don’t get into to the area of investments but after reading the Alaska Wildlife Trooper’s section of the police report in the Homer News last week, I’d suggest that you consider buying some shares in the Bic Pen Company. If things keep up, there’s going to be a big run on their p...

  • If you haven’t visited The Fishing Hole lately, there’s only one way to describe it. It’s a “Back to the Future” scenario with silvers performing Cirque du Soleil flips over each other while rabid fishermen throw everything at them from plug-cut herring to Pixies the size of 1200cc Harleys...

  • The karma around our abode became chilled for awhile after the Winter Olympics kicked into gear.  I’m not sure why. Maybe it was because we subtly assumed the cool attitude of the high flying skateboarders or totally zoned out on NBC’s continued riveting drama of the status of Bob Costa’s...

  • Last week I reported that the king run at The Fishing Hole had been about as productive as trolling from a boat and trailer being towed down the Seward Highway. Things have changed a bit after a series of high tides. Fishing is picking up during both the ebb and flow of the lagoon’s salt water.&nb...
