On a recent day off, the sun was shining and the ocean calm. The few crew who had a day off couldn’t pass up a chance to fish. Captain Tom took Captain Bo, Deckhands Jack and Collin, and his daughter Evelyn to the Cape for an afternoon of king fishing. Not only did they catch their limit, but Collin bagged this 52-pound monster! It took his bait on the way down and once Collin tightened up to it, it screamed off 300 feet of line on the first run. He battled the fish for a half hour before Captain Bo scooped it into the net. To top it off, once they cut the first fillet, they discovered that it was a white-king! It was a memorable day on the water and we’re fairly certain that Collin still has a grin on his face.
Some members of the AU crew have been busy this offseason honing their fishing skills away from Sitka. Do you have any fishing photos you’d like to show off from this offseason? Send the photos and your address to firstname.lastname@example.org by next Monday and we’ll feature them on our blog and send you an AU prize!
Our boats are off the water and on blocks and trailers. It’s officially the end to another great fishing season. Thank you everyone who fished with us this summer. We look forward to seeing you again in 2015!
Stay tuned for Captain Tom’s recap of the 2014 season!
Our season concluded last week and we have hundreds of memorable photos we want to share from 2014. Our first post in a series that highlights another memorable summer features the monster cohos from August and September. 2014 produced more fish above 18 pounds than any in recent memory. Most groups who fished with us from mid-August until…
We have just over a month left in the 2014 season and we’ve accumulated a lot of great photos. We put all the photos we’ve taken into our photo gallery, but we thought we would pick a few our favorites photos for your enjoyment. We like to highlight the grip and grin photos most of the time, but the lighter, funnier moments need to surface once and awhile too. Enjoy!
During the last week of June, the ocean was glass-calm. Silvers started to show up the week before and since Robert Yokoi brought his fly fishing gear, he thought he’d try his luck. Captain David marked schools of silvers at very shallow depths – 40 feet and up. Robert casted his fly from the bow, letting it sink just below…
