Noyes Island King Salmon

Over the next four weeks the Nordic Quest will be stalking trophy kings in the Noyes, Lulu and Baker Island area on the west side of Prince of Wales. We have wanted to do this for a long time and will have numerous reports on our website over the next two months about how we did, where we fished (mooching, trolling, depths, tides, etc.), and places we used for anchorages.

It’s a long run from our home port in Juneau so we partnered with a friend who took the Nordic Quest from Juneau to Craig and I’ll make the reverse run. Hopefully both of us will fully punch our king salmon tags and along the way enjoy some halibut fishing and setting pots for Dungeness crabs. We’ll have stories, photos and a fresh video to post to the site.
