The weather is our biggest challenge to having an enjoyable and productive day on the water. However it usually only takes a single day to have a much better day on the water. If your agenda includes a non-fishing day, we would like to hear what day it is. We may be able to keep that day available. We keep a couple days each week unbooked so that we know we don’t have to fish a few poor weather days.
Here are are some ideas for a windy day:
If the wind lays down later in the day, a walk on the beach during low tide is always a treat. Between jet lag, a 5 hour drive from Anchorage and unexpected lack of sleep due to extended northern daylight hours most fishing parties could use some rest as well before embarking on a long tiring day of salt water fishing. Professor Michael V. Vitiello who studies psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the University of Washington recommmends going to bed an hour earlier for 3 nights before flying westward. Then after your flight, getting some late afternoon light and taking .5-5mg of melatonin 30 minutes before local bedtime until you feel adjusted. A Bonine pill the night before the fishing trip and one the morning of the trip is a good plan for anyone that is worried about getting seasick. Ginger has been known to help. Nona’s Ark has ginger snaps and ginger tea aboard. If any of your party is known to get seasick, a prescription for a scopolamine patch to apply behind the ear is a good plan. May and June provide our calmest seas and they are the best months to catch halibut and king salmon close to shore. Expect chilly mornings and the need to shed a layer or two by noon. Raingear, warm hats and rubber boots can enable you to be more comfortable and fish harder. That said, there is heat in the cabin and considerably less gear works fine for some people. Jeff VanLandingham from Eagle River, AK has fished two trips every year for close to 30 years and always boards the boat with no hat, tennis shoes or hiking boots and his lucky high school letterman jacket!
