Our boat charter left the Seward dock in the early dawn light, using the ship's onboard GPS and rader for navigation through the dense fog. After a couple of hours, we arrived at our spot, and had our first taste of Seward Alaska salmon fishing ... FISH-ON in the first minute! With six of us fishing, there were several occasions when three of us were fighting (about 10 pounder) silver salmon at the same time. We had bagged our limit of 3 each in about an hour. We then motored over to another spot for some Seward Alaska halibut fishing. We caught a bunch of these (although no monsters), but we made up for it by landing some 30+ pound Alaska Ling Cod - Kurt's Alaska comment when I pulled this first one up was "It's a HOG!" Finally, we even caught one yellow eye rockfish or more commonly known as Red Snapper - a very colorful fish. There were even some alaska birds that were "fishing" out there plus we caught a fleeting glimpe of a nurse whale.
As can be seen in the picture below, it was a "slayfest" as we
returned on our charter boat
with over 400 pounds of fish along with a great time/memories -
Happy 40th birthday Kurt!
