Default Favorite/Best time to saltwater fish SE Alaska?

I've been a few times, always in late July which seems good to me because there are still some kings around and the silvers are starting to show up. The bottom fishing seems pretty consistent throughout the summer, am I right? What happens if you go earlier, like in June? Historically it looks like you can keep more kings (maybe 3 versus 1?) but I assume there are no silvers really running then. When do you go (or suggest going)?

We go the first of June for Kings one yr the go end of August the next for Silvers. We seem to do equally good on the Halibut and rock fish either time.

Check the seasons as well. Lingcod and several other bottom species aren't 365 day fisheries. Make sure what is in season is what you want.
