The trip was excellent as it has been every year for the past 21 years. Hart and I always enjoy fishing with Capt DJ. It is always a pleasure. Silver salmon fishing was a bit slow but not by lack of effort by DJ, also fishing with deckhand Luke McNamee, we kept calling him Luther, was a lot of fun. Very good deckhand and nice young man, hope to fish with him again.
A lot of new faces this year in Sitka, it was nice to see Bella as the office manager, she is always a joy to talk to, but everyone is the best as always. Weather was nice, all in all, fishing was good. Came back with 2 boxes of fish, a lot of black cod, ling cod, P cod and we all got our Kings and a good halibut harvest, so I am happy.
Tommie and I can’t wait to get up there in September and Fish with Capt Sarah. Hart and I are definitely coming back next year at the same time slot.
On another note fishing with Matt and Miles was great, we all clicked right from the get-go. The 4 of us went out to dinner the last night they were there and hopefully will be fishing together again next year. Thank you as always for another great AU trip, Hart made a great comment the day we arrived in Sitka saying coming up here is like getting released from prison, it feels so free, not that either of us have been in prison, but a great saying I thought.
