Default Ninilchik, Alaska

Our weekly outing took us to Ninilchik this time and it was fun as always. Way less people than last weeks run on the Kenai area due to dip netters. Went to the beach and watched a few boats launched into the inlet with tractors, just as they do in Anchor Point. No Sheep or bears on this trip but a few Moose were seen, even a couple of this years calves. The temps were downright hot at about 70*, we were almost ready to throw in the towel and start the genny for the AC! This trip showed 3 class B's on the highway and no one waved back, maybe they had a hard time seeing 4 hands waving at them or they were scared that the driver was also waving with both hands, the Queen and I do it big time around here. Next weekend we are having a big shindig here at the homestead and will miss our trip out and about. The party will be a blast but cant wait for the following trip somewhere, wherever somewhere is!

I was there two years ago in Kenai when the dip netters were out in full force for the salmon run.

@ AK49er & Davydd: So I take it the local residents stay home when the dip netters and tourists come out?

Only an Alaskan resident can dip net. Most of the folks come from the larger cities to get their Reds. Most of the local to the area folks still use the rod and reel method. Lots of folks from outside have never seen this kind of action and add to the number of people on the beach making it seem as if millions are dipnetting. I would bet there has to be a you tube video of this somewhere out there.

I'm not an Alaskan. I was just camping nearby and just went to watch the action.

You are right, there are plenty, AK49er. Having never seen this form of fishing this series was interesting:

This video was what I was observing at the mouth of the Kenai River. They would catch and then clean on the shore. They threw the heads and guts out and the seagulls would sweep in and feast. The tides would come in and clean the shoreline of the left over mess.
