Editor George Krumm enjoyed his June 2020 do-it-yourself Sitka trip for kings and halibut through Fish Baranof so much, he just had to go back later in the summer to try a DIY trip for silvers with his sister, Delores and cousin, Tom. The result was heavy fish boxes full of coho and bottomfish for the trip home. If you’re interested in a DIY trip to a location smack dab in the middle of the west coast’s salmon superhighway, plus bountiful halibut and other bottomfish, read this article.
