June 30th - Better Weather and more Kings!

The rain continued, but the wind layed down and the seas were calmer but the fishing remained good. Plenty of nice big Kings hit the dock today as well as a few pink salmon and our first Chum salmon...throw in a few nice halibut and you can call it a great day of fishing.

On with the pictures...

It was tough getting them to stay down for pictures, most preferred to get up to the warm fireplace in the Lounge and relax before dinner!!

The perfect end to a wonderful day of fishing (in spite of the weather) at Yes Bay Lodge in SE Alaska!!

June 28th - Big Kings in the Morning!!

The championship is on the line here and "Cutter" rose to the challenge with the years biggest at 31.5 pounds! Dewey went out first thing this morning with every intention of bringing in the biggest of the season to win the crew pool...and according to him he lost an even bigger one (The old one that got away story!)
