PWS 2013

Had another great trip to Prince William Sound. Weather was perfect, water was like glass, and we caught lots of fish! We were able to limit out on Salmon and Halibut both days! 
Packed and ready to set out at daylight for Whittier!

Dipnetting Duff

Took dipnetting trip to Kenai. First time and it was an experience. Lot of work but also a lot of fun.

Packed and ready for a Fishin Mission
Sun setting on Day 1 of dipnetting. Hit a good run and netted 27 salmon in 3 hours.
Camped right on the beach, which was a tent city of fishing camps.
Record day of Salmon entering the Kenai River...which led to commercial boats flooding the fishery.
Less than 24 hours out of the water and packaged and processed back at the Fish house!

Hiking Duff's

Took a day and hiked Thunderbird Falls, and then The Butte for the first time. The Butte was NOT an easy hike, but the view was worth the pain to get a 360 degree panoramic of Palmer and Wasilla. Even if it took a second trip to get to the top. Great kick off to Spring!

Seattle Duff

Spent a couple days in Seattle...had a chance to take in a Mariners game (Felix Hernandez pitched) and checked out the waterfront and market. Good couple days.
