Overview of Wild Alaska Fishing and Cruises, September 2018

Got home at midnight last night. No time for details. Here’s a representative photo from each day of our trip.

We flew out of San Jose on Saturday and landed in Petersburg about 3 PM. Spent the night in town and were underway on Sunday morning, September 9.

My plan is to expand on this post as I find more time. Lots of photos and lots of fish.

Halibut and rock fish were landed on Sunday afternoon.

On day two, we landed limits of coho salmon and saw our first brown bear.

Day three produced salmon limits again and perfect weather in the cove where Perseverance was anchored.

The cove was quite calm when cousin, Wes, and I approached Perseverance, with coho limits, mid-morning, on day 3.

We had a lot of fishing action on day four.

Day five produced more fishing success and some variety.

Day six was our last chance to catch salmon.

On day seven, I found this dog sleeping on an island in the bay, a prelude to some fishing excitement.

More to come.

Will Robin land the halibut?

Stand by.
