Father Daughter Fishing Adventure

DSC03338-648x1024

Rob Day & His Daughter Stephanie fished with us from Aug. 7-11, 2012 and we can’t thank Rob enough for allowing us the opportunity to show Stephanie our awesome backyard. Day 1 found us with our limits of delicious rockfish, lingcod and yelloweye all before 2pm.  The fishing was hot as we jigged up fish after fish and enjoyed the great weather and flat calm seas. After soaking in the fantastic Natural Hot Springs(again-yay!) and eating a big pile of Rockfish Olympia we were officially hot spring noodles and ready for bed! Rrrrraaauuughhh! is apparently Sea Lion for …

August 1-4, 2012, Warm Springs Bay, AK Awesome weather, jigging for rockfish, motor-mooching for salmon and enjoying all the sights of Sitka Sound were the highlight of the day. Soaking in the idyllic Hot Springs with a belly full of Rockfish Olympia was the crowning touch.   Kurt, do we have to soak in those warm, wonderful Hot Springs again? OK!! when can we go? Was the question posed after bonking fish all day. Leonard earned 3 nicknames on this trip, among them was “Shortliner” as he couldn’t keep fish off his line and really was trying to take a break in …

“Put your Mean Face on Diana. Reel, Reel, Reel!” coached Kurt from the back deck as Diana was tied into yet another rockfish from below.   “Double, Triple, Quadruple Fish On!” “We need help out here TrinaBug!” shouted Kurt. The Pennsylvania crew was tired of reeling up who knows what variety of Rockfish after Rockfish aboard the GLACIER so we finished off Day One with a soak in the newly renovated clean natural Goddard Hot Springs.  The Bald Eagles put on a show of aerial aerobatics picking up the carcasses near the boat as we watched the sun go down …

DSC00292-768x1024

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... watching big, wild Brown Bear up close and personal & catching big Steelhead in front of thundering waterfalls... Picking Salmonberries while …

Jon & Casey Go Fishing in Alaska

IMG_0388-1024x768

“FISH ON” was the yell heard on the “GLACIER” within 2 minutes of getting the hooks into the water. “Reel, reel, reel” was the chant as cousins Jonathan and Casey Edwards cranked in fish after fish on the first day of a 4 day trip. The Coho bite was hot and Jonathan’s arms were tired when we finally dropped the anchor on Day 1. Highlights of the trip were beachcombing remote ocean beaches for all sorts of far away treasures, shrimping in remote scenic fjords using all the fish carcasses they caught earlier, jigging up fish after fish and trying to guess what was on …
