Well, here it is guys and gals, my thread on our trip up to AK.
We had a real good time being back home, but boy were we busy. I'll spare everyone all the details about going to this persons house for dinner, meeting these people for drinks, blah blah blah. But here's the general list of the cool stuff we did..........
*Drove to Seward for a halibut/salmon fishing trip - ended up getting 2 halibut each (Me, Tammy and my dad) and I got 3 coho (silver salmon). Spent a night in Seward.
*South to the Russian/Kenai rivers to fish for sockeye (red salmon). Tammy caught 2, my dad and I hooked up several times but didn't land any. (Tammy wanted to let everyone know that when we were cleaning the salmon she hand fed a trout some salmon eggs
, little bugger scratched her finger) After fishing for a long day, we continued south into Soldotna, spent the night there.
*further south to the Kasilof river to dip net for sockeye. Two days with the nets in the water, Tammy got 1 my dad got 2 I got nothin'
. Had a good time camping on the beach and getting hammered with some friends around a driftwood campfire
*South again, to Clam Gulch. After clams here, duh. My dad headed home after the Kasilof so this was just Tammy and I. Had an awesome night hanging out around the fire and having some beers. The next morning we dug up 120 razor clams. Hard work but it's fun and the clams are delicious.
*Headed north, back to Anchorage, long drive.
That's about all the cool stuff. We saw moose, blackbear, mountain goats, Dalls sheep, bald eagles and a chit ton of seagulls.
Now, onto the pics..................
