Bum deal. I've seem that boat up there many times.
Ya, it's an institution in Sitka.  Bill is a survivor, and I'm sure he'll get it going again. May have to write off this early season, but I bet by this fall he's fishing it again.

Plus, he'll finally get a place of honor on the wall at the P Bar  :chuckle:
That P-Bar pic was the first thing I thought of when I saw your post. They might have to start putting pics on the ceiling in there. When you heading north?

Probably June 23rd-ish.  You looking for a ride?
i wish. I will be in Norway for a summer solstice party. See you in August!

Shout out to @yellowdog , he cut another fine set of decals for my old gal.  Quick, competitively priced, high quality stuff.

Thanks again man!  :tup:

My pleasure cutting the Diamond Lil lettering for your great looking boat. Have a safe and successful season!

Quick update -
Fishing's been slow out here on the coast of WA, but the fish are big and fun to catch. Got an 11. 8# average in mid may.  No hogs, but very few runts either.  Just solid fish, they're gorging on 6-7" herring.

Here's a pair of 13#-ish fish that I'm having cut and vacpac for retail.

Could almost shave looking at that gillplate it's so shiny.

Thanks guys. Time is tight, but looking at ways to do a group buy.  The price of kings has come down to the point I can likely justify doing a king and halibut buy for the Hunt Wa'ers.  Will likely also offer up coho filets and spot prawns at the same time if I can do it.  Watch for a possible group buy thread.  :tup:

If and when you do this, I will be in for one full box with a mix of all 4 listed. 
Your last half box I got lasted about 2 weeks, did not order enough and learned that lesson.
Please keep us posted.

I'd be in for a box of all four as well.  Please let me know where/when.
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

So many free days, so few fish....  Wait, I changed my mind.  Maybe the best season ever on PS.

Roger that fellas.  A full 80# box of these goods can get pretty pricey, depending on the mix. I'll figure out something for us though.  Thanks for showing the interest, I'll start a separate thread soon to keep this one on point.
