June 11th - Training Day

WOW - What an exciting day today was, especially for the new crew! The weather turned today, cold windy and rainy most of the day. Hunting for King Salmon was still the order of the day with 3 boats out fishing! All Day!

Kicker with new crew; Capt Guy Hickman and Capt Al Bermitz lead the way in with the only fish worthy of some pictures. Guy Hickman at the end of the day stopped at the mouth and landed an early season record halibut of 106 pounds, with Capt Al and old Kicker cheering him on!!

The rest of the boats brought in some very nice rock fish and some stories of cold, windy and rainy fishing weather.

Guy also managed to get some real nice pictures of the killer whales, Old Crooked fin and his pod of killers made their appearance again and Guy was lucky enough to actually get one of a killer breaching, so a good time was had by all!!

Killer Whale Breaching!

Killer Right by the boat!!

So in Yes Bay tradition, Guy got to hit the water after all the cleaning was done. Over a hundred pounds and you go for a swim!!

All in all a fine day of fishing at Yes Bay Lodge in SE Alaska!!
