(Dave and Craig leaving camp)
This was my first moose hunting trip, and with the exception of not getting a moose, it was absolutely amazing. I spent four days with my brother-in-laws, Dave and Craig, in the some of the most beautiful country I have ever seen. My father-in-law Layne dropped us off with his airboat. Dave brought his Crawdad for us to navigate around the lake. We had a premium viewing area as we set up camp on a raised peninsula on the lake. From camp we could survey nearly 360 degrees of moose country. We spotted 6 bulls over the weekend, but none that were legal for harvesting. The weather was amazing, but unfortunately that was not a good thing for hunting moose. It was still an amazing experience and a great time with my Bro-in-laws!
Halibut Fishing in Prince William Sound. Was being completely outfished on Day 1, all I could catch was the bottom of the ocean, snagging constantly, and even losing an entire rig. Day 2, Layne and I were up early, after getting on the board with a couple Little Butts, I hit what i was sure was another snag. Quickly i discovered it was no snag. After being harpooned and shot twice I finally had my 120lb Halibut.
On the way home we were entertained by a whale...just another day in the Sound.
