Kevin Klein Reports on San Juan Fishing

haliboysIt’s that time of year in the San Juan’s…ling, halibut, and prawns. Halibut and prawns are open on selective dates, so read the regs before you go.
Last Friday’s opener  was pretty good for flatties, and prawns have been productive, depending on where you are. I like to bust out the tuna heads from last summer to use as shrimp bait. They sure do fit well in a bait bag, and they are pungent and oily.
We found some nice lings just under the slot limit that have come in all over the islands.
This weather has just been phenomenal, too. It’s times like these getting out on the water that make lasting memories.millerprawns
