Homer winter king tournament


March 23.







The drive down from Anchorage on Friday starts out ominously with a blizzard warning. We run into the forecasted weather at Girdwood. I've attached a pic of the kayak at a break in Cooper Landing.
But as we approach Homer, things are looking better. Red Sky at night, sailors' delight. Is that how it goes???
Morning comes and it looks pretty breezy. Load up onto six wheelers and four wheelers and headed up to Bluff Pt. It wasn't easy picking through the rock fields.
Morning starts out a bit sporty. I'd guess solid three footers with an occasionally larger swells that would roll through. But the wave period seemed long so it never felt unsafe.
But in the afternoon the sun comes out and the ocean calms a bit.
Oh yeah, the fishing report. Well that's about it. Not a single touch. My friends on the powerboat didn't get a strike either. I guess like KK says, there were 162 fish landed for 733 anglers. We then handicapped ourselves by fishing an area that intel said had fewer but larger fish. And oh yeah, we fished out of kayaks. lol.
I still had a great time! Spending all day battling it out with the power boats a few miles offshore was great! Good eats and free beer afterwards! I'll be back!
Still that's three trips totaling 15 hours without a strike. I am due!!! It will happen. It only gets better from here. In mid to late April they will be more accessible from our traditional launches further north.
As for events, our group will be out in force for the Anchor Point Calcutta King Tournament usually scheduled for mid-May!!!
