Always wanted a photo like that from my days up there. Ever since I saw the one in the P Bar, it was a goal. Got close a few times, never made it quite perfect

%*~& boats. Have a lingering air-in-fuel issue that caused me to want to get off the ocean blue this morning.  Nothing really serious, but not something I wanted to risk out in 25 kts fishing where nobody else is.  So the crew and I decided to take a much deserved half-day off on our way back to town. What to do?

I spotted a WW2 pill box up on top of Ataku Isl as we were coming through Biorka Channel.  Can you see it?  Decided we're gonna stretch our legs and check it out.

It was a pretty short and sweet hike through very dense underbrush. Kyle wore sweats, I wore jeans. Neither was a great idea. But felt good to get soaked with freshwater nonetheless.

Got up to the pill box/bunker, it was on stilts. Wish I had more pics of it, but didn't think to take them.

Here's a pic of me lining up on some invading enemy forces.  You can all rest easy tonight - I'm watching out for those DPRK advance forces.

(Producer credit to Carpsniper for sourcing the armament for me).

Some of the interior wood had been burned long ago and left great charred writing sticks.  So some temporary graffiti was in order.

Headed back to the boat, on our way into town now. Just a few minutes ago, a humpback was putting on an aerial show.  Caught one lazy jump on vid.


Thought I'd share a non-fishing adventure. Gonna be some boat work in the morning, then back to doing my part to produce the finest salmon available.  Wild Alaska Troll!

Would have been funny to  chalk in Hunt Wa on the wall of that bunker. Thanks for sharing your adventure.

Good luck, stay safe! FYI, The car is still running great. Thanks again.

The Adirondack shelter at Kakul narrows used to have our names in it, till some jack-nut burned it down a few years back. Also have signed into the shelter on Otstoia island up around North Arm. Cool pics!

Here's a pic of one tough dude.  He's been hand-trolling out of his 26' St Pierre dory all season. I saw him fishing up off of Yakobi rock in some snotty wx a few weeks ago, and now he's down here in Sitka, 60-some miles away as the crow flies.  His cabin consists of a small house (about 36" high inside, tops) built on the forward third of his little ship, with only a canvas flap in the back to keep the wx out.  He's got an outboard in a well amidships, and a transom hung rudder.  Two short wooden poles and a couple of hand-cranker gurdies.
