    Minter Creek "HOT"
    High tide - go as close as possible to the hatchery.
    Low tide - Go anywhere in the creek.

    Arrived @ 10:40 hrs and caught nothing. The water was too low and fish were old. 3 guys got $109 ticket for fishing near the hatchery rope. One of them was my friend. I understand if you cast over or under the hatchery rope, but there are no sign stating the distance to fish by the rope. Oh well! Should be good fishing when it's high tide. Good Luck!

    Fished on the outgoing tide. A few spurts of spawned out chums but no significant numbers. Saw no fish worth keeping. Would not waste the gas to fish here.

    Fished Minter on the incoming tide. Schools of chum finding their way up to the hatchery. Green or red corky did the trick as almost everyone on the bank had a fish on. They're holding in the deep spots (which are few and far between.

    got on the creek around 7:30 so i could fish the tide out an back. fishing was good, but as the tide fell the hole just packed full of fish. started the morning off fishing a 2/0 hook with corky an yarn but was foul hooking to many fish. so i dropped to down to a #4 octopus hook with a #10 watermelon corky and proceded to hook probly around 70 percent of the fish in mouth or jaw (kept getting the lil hook straighten though). there was a couple hundred fish in the hole at low tide so it was impossible to fair hook'em all (even the few fly guys i saw had the same problem). lots of chromers todays, i fished til around 11:30 got my 4 hens (one nickel the others just started to color up) and released 30 or so fish. was crowded today, but i was fishing to a couple of guys that were funny as heck so it didn't matter. it was a fun day at the zoo!
  8. Fished from 10 am till 3, had plenty of hook ups although because there are so many lots of fouls. Limited out none the less. I would recommend if you fishing any of the shallows to use only one smaller corky and a light weight. Best of luck, FISH ON!!

    Long trip got there around 9:15AM, Hook alot of fish (20+) took only 2 home that I liked. I didnt think it was all that crowded maybe 17-20 people. The regulars and resident fisherman were very nice to fish beside. Thanks for the medical gloves man made a difference in warmth.

    Bunch of Snaggers there. Saw 1 guy using a big halibut rod with 3oz cannonball, WTF. He did snag one of the biggest chum right on the tail. He acted like it was no big deal and put the fish on his leather shoelaced stringer. I think he said his name was Jimpy. Keep a look out for him.
