Great News.  I think I need to get my hands on some nice white winter king salmon.

Commercial salmon trollers in Southeast Alaska have seen a better catch this winter season.

Trollers have landed 12,700 king salmon in Southeast, three months into the season. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game’s regional troll management biologist Pattie says overall it’s been a pretty good season.

The 10-year average catch for this time of the season is 11,500 kings. The winter season opened in early October and can remain open through April, unless the fleet catches 45,000 kings before that date. Last year’s total winter harvest topped 42,000 Chinook.
