Alaska Adventure 2009 ~ Part Three

Yesterday netted zero fish. Luckily, Neptune smiled upon us and sent a few our way today!

Due to some high winds, our early morning ocean adventure was postponed until 10:00 a.m. A little extra R & R was much appreciated. This is how our day went ...

Here she is! Our ocean cruiser for the day.

Heading out. Leaving the nasty weather behind.

11:00 a.m. ~ Tom waiting for Captain Bob to find some fish.

11:30 a.m. ~ Joe is ready to go.

12:00 p.m. ~ Tom is worn out from waiting for the fish.

12:40 p.m. ~ Yippee! First catch of the day! Way to go Joe! This Halibut was only 16 pounds. In my opinion, 15 to 40 pounds is the perfect size for the best flavor.

A not so pretty Rock Fish. But mild tasting and good to eat.

This is B.D. (Bad Dog) Captain Bob's 1st - Mate

1:30 p.m. Me taking a break from casting & reeling. It really makes your arms tired.

2:10 p.m. ~ Joe strikes again! This time with a Yellow Eye Rock Fish.

2:15 p.m. ~ Tom's turn. Another Yellow Eye.

3:00 p.m. ~ One awesome fish! A striped Rock Fish. The most colorful one I've ever seen brought in.

Wow ~ Tom caught a Starfish. We kept him long enough for this photo, then set him free.

4:00 p.m. ~ The fishing was real slow, but we came upon this great photo opportunity!

These seals allowed us to get pretty close for our photo shoot.

They are just so cute!

Seems that they enjoyed posing for us!

5:00 p.m. ~ Called it a day & headed back to camp. Ended up with 2 Halibut and 4 Rock Fish. Early to bed and early to rise. Had to get back and pick up Sadie Rose from the dog sitter.

She doesn't like it much, but Sadie is becoming a frequent flyer!

Well, as I mentioned earlier, the fishing was not that spectacular. But we were very grateful for the opportunity to visit Alaska and get some really great photos! Hope you enjoyed your visit too!
