This weekend and upcoming short week will be hectic and then we head off for a few days of hearty party in Vancouver before flying up to Rivers Inlet for a week.
I'll post reports and pics from the trip here.
I'm heading this thread with the above pic of myself with buddy Andy,
and here we're on a charter last August in Sitka, with Captain Kent Hall aboard The 'Sitka Secret".
Andy and I met on a cruise, and our wives let us go for a day of fishing.
As late in the year as it was, the 4 of us on board limited on Chinook and Coho.
Andy caught the most and largest fish.
I raved about BC, and as nice as Alaska was and IS, I really sold the trip we had booked for July, and
Andy was in as fast as he could send his deposit in.
However, he had rather invasive disc surgery in February and the re-hab and convalescence
went south on him, and after 10 months of anticipation, pics, videos, websites, and general drooling...
he sadly had to pull the plug and back out, as his problematic disc refuses to cooperate.
Andy Bud, you'll be with us in spirit. The trip won't be the same without my salmon slayin' pal.
We'll send reports and pics, and you'll be aboard next season for certain.
Reports will start Wednesday the 13th.
Mike and Crew.
