Due to bad weather the winter Homer king salmon derby was delayed until this past sunday. There were 792 fishermen in the derby and 92 fish caught. The odds don’t sound very good but there were 20 more fish caught this year than last year. Boats are lined up along the bluff trolling for the Homer king salmon derby winning fish. The fishing isn’t fast and furious but what a great place to spend the day on the water. I fished with some good friends from around the Kenai Peninsula. We had a great day but ended up with no king salmon on the boat. It was a great way to get out and spend the day on the water and I highly recommend it to anyone that would like to experience Alaskas fishing. There is not a lot of fishing going on the Kenai peninsula this early in the spring and it gives us a chance to get out and get a line wet.
