Sitka BT-

Thank you so much for posting that up.  When I decided to leave my straight job for a "life of slime," Tele and Joel were there to answer any number of my inane questions, providing quiet encouragement the whole way. 

One of my proudest moments this year was in August, when the Nerka and the Diamond Lil happened to be in Sitka at the same time - if only for a few minutes.  Tele saw we were doing a quick turn on the trip and were planning on leaving right away, so came over to chat for a bit.  I introduced Tele to my relatively new deckhand Mike as she was handing him our mooring lines.  Tele, gracious as always, welcomed Mike to the troll fleet and said "Pleased to meet you Mike.  You are very lucky.  The Diamond Lil is a wonderful boat and has a great captain.  Good luck to you, be safe."

Thought I was going to burst with pride.

Sounds like you are really enjoying the time off after a very long season.

Ha, you know it.  Partying like a rock star over here.

Cold and windy. N40 gusting to 50. Luckily close to shore so no big seas.

Just posted up in the "Looking for work/Looking to Hire" thread that I'm interviewing for a Deckhand spot for the summer troll season.  Check out the info there and PM me if you're interested.

Been a while since I've posted, wanted to share a vid of some good chum fishing in Sitka Sound from yesterday.


My deckhand Kyle is a Washington guy, fellow hunter.  We've been doing pretty good on the coho this year too.  But you gotta troll dress the coho - chums are nice because they are after the eggs, so I just pop a gill and slush them in those deck totes. Kyle is a big fan of chums!  :chuckle:

Enjoy-

Cool video, Chris.
