Ok I have been day dreaming about running Sergius narrows and pulling into places like shotgun alley, or Phillapino cove, where are you now???

Got an inReach message from him earlier he had to turn around because the Easterlies leaving Hoonah going into Chatam Straights were to strong. Said it was the nastiest seas hes seen in a while. He's anchored up somewhere now drinking scotch. Awful.
I hunt, therefore I am.... I fish, therefore I lie.

Yeah I was wondering, talked with my brother in Juneau and he said the weather was going to be nasty! Also said they have been having short weather windows, usually they can count on a couple days here and there, but said it has been hours not days when they can get out!

I cannot believe I just found this thread. I was born and raised in Sitka back in the late 60's to late 70's. My folks pulled us out of there in 78 I think. I can honestly say it was the best place to grow up. I was to young to hunt but remember our shed filled with deer my dad, brother, uncles and cousins took. It was nothing to have 25 to 30 hanging during the season waiting to be processed by the family. I spent allot of time catching humpies out at Stargavin. I know I killed allot of fish in the years I was able to fish. My uncle had a 28ft. Fiberform named the Trista K docked at Cresent Harbor. Some of my best memories are catching kings out at Viscary. We used to catch halibut right out by the can you can see from Sandy Beach. I spent allot of time cleaning fish in the front yard because there were to many to take into the house. As for the bears, we lived on a logging camp in Kelp Bay and they were everywhere. We could not leave the area around our trailer without an adult packing. I have really enjoyed reading this thread. It reminds of the best of times. I look forward to reading about your next adventures. Thank you Skillet. Keep them coming.

I worked on tugs all over Alaska in the 80s. We were in Sitka one time and heard a story about a guy that pulled a prank on the town one day. Can't remember if it was April Fools or what but he rented a helicopter and brought a load of tires up to the volcano (Mt. Edgecomb) and lit them on fire. The whole town thought the volcano was erupting!!! I don't know if it's a true story or not but it's a good one.

True or not, that's hilarious.

I heard it was a senior prank, but this sounds more realistic!

You’d be amazed what 20 something seniors could accomplish. Lots of muscle, not much brains  :chuckle:

Just a thought,

What are your thoughts on fair catch and catch share policies?
