Valdez Alaska Seeing Good Silver Bite

By: Chris Shaffer It took a mere 15 seconds to catch our first silver salmon out of Valdez and the bite didn’t slow down after. It was reminiscent of several years ago when Tim Bouchard of Valdez Outfitters used our Fire Brine herring to nab easy limits in a few short hours while filming Pautzke [...]

The first few king salmon will likely be taken from valley locations during the week of May 8-14. Kings are the largest and first salmon to show up [...]

Alaska’s Mat-Su Valley Producing Big Ice Bows

By: Chris Shaffer To be honest I wanted to stay in the hotel and sleep in. I’m more of a fair weather angler and after guide Dustin Slinker of The Bait Shack in Anchorage, Alaska, told me he expects us to get three bites in a half day, I wasn’t excited about fishing. Unfortunately, with [...]
