Bill & Leigh’s Awesome Alaskan Adventures

Welcome to Sitka by the Sea!

Welcome to Sitka by the Sea!

Warm sunny weather and calm seas found Wyomingites Bill and Leigh catching MONSTER Lingcod and Yelloweye off remote pinnacles until their arms were jelly and they had enough of the toothy critters from under the “Neath!”

Can you believe how HUGE those Lingcod are? Awesome! Other highlights were touring and anchoring near “Bird Island” and enjoying all the Puffins, Murres, Guillemots and Bald Eagles…
