    Alaska or bust-gctid382606

    10 more days and I will be on my boat for the summer, I wait all year for this. I get to take my son out fishing, he has not been in Alaska since the mid 80's, going to see if I can find him a halibut he will have to fight for a while, although I do not usually keep any over 60 lbs, a photo will work, I have never been able to top my 271 lb butt but I like to try.

    Salmon, halibut, rock fish and lingcod are on the menu.

    Hauling the boat out to install my old furuno CH-18 scanning sonar, it is a killer for salmon-they can run, but they cannot hide.

    I really enjoy being out on the water where there are very few boats, I just have to go out along the coast a ways. I rairly see another boat where I anchor, thank god.

    Allowing for the sad fact that fish are so fricken' YUCKY, that sounds like a FANTASTIC TRIP and a STUPENDOUS SUMMER!

    Will you be online? Share some pics?

    Would love to see 'em !!

    Be safe out there,,,,that's a big pond

      I have internet at the dock in Seward, will post some pictures. I make this trip every year since I got tired of cold and snow, we stay until the last week in August when the rain and wind starts. 4900 mile drive, and gas has gon down except in south centeral, the north pole refinery just shut down it's 2nd oil refining section, only one left, they said they will make more money, ya, our money, gas went up in 1 week from $4.19 to $4.30 4 cent jump today. Seward at the gas station $4.60

      At least we make money in July and August selling black rockfish, hope to break even on this trip, same as last year.

        Where in Seward is your boat?

        We're presently in slip E-68

        We're planning our first real excursion on the 31st.

        We're heading east to Bainbridge, then over to Macleod harbor on Montague.

        If you're going to be in our neck of the woods, please look us up. We have the beer and wine cellar stocked

          I fish west in the Chiswells area. Should be some king salmon near the western north/western edges of Montague, watch the tides.

          South twin bay in Elrington is a good anchorage, anchor in the middle off the beach, you cannot drag anchor uphill there.

            We're going to take some time this summer to go west, but that'll be later on.

            This first trip with the Admrial and the dogs I want to take her somewhere she really knows and likes.

            The little anchorage in the south /west end of Bainbridge passage is her favorite.

            Darby from here on thge BOC is the only other person we ever see there. There's a pretty productive hole right there.

            Macleod harbor is just a great place to go. You can anchor up and in the evening catch more nice halibut than you know what to do with. That and we don't have to battle the swell at cape clear. We'll probably dip outside for some sea bass (our favorite).

              Bainbridge passage is a very nice passage, a lot of otters have their kits there, lots of whales at times. I could not believe all the otters I saw there in the mid 90's.

                We really like Safety Cove, its just in the next bay from Seward, Day Harbor. Its a state marine park, and there is a water fall fed lake in the back. Its a really nice place to go ashore and walk around. Its a short run, and we have always had the place to ourselves.

                Hope to see you guys around this summer.

                    We tried three years ago for Alaska and got 2/3 of the way up until motor issues, to name a few, turned us around. That winter I put in a new Volvo Penta motor and DP outdrive and all is well. Stop in at Shearwater and tell them Wave Dancer, the Higgins, and Lukas said hi. Keep us posted on your progress. Gary

                      Have you ever thought about gearing up for Salmon Sharks? They are becoming a very popular sport fish. Just have to watch that they don't roll up your on s/s leader or you'll be keeping a few lbs of meat. We have the Blues around quite a bit at the Charlottes but I am always on the look out for a Salmon Shark.
