Fishers of Souls, Sole, Halibut and Crab
I really wish I could go out on a boat. That would be so freaking awesome, cause then I could go halibut fishing *legit* and even shark fishing! There's tons of members with boats that would be more than happy to take us out... Honestly, it's the biggest temptation in my life right now. I'll just have to come back some day I guess! Hahahaha.
I won't have to leave Alaska without having caught a Halibut though!!! Two weeks back, when I was fishing on my p-day, I CAUGHT ONE OFF the city dock. I think I am one of like 2 people who have ever caught a halibut off that dock!!!! It's pretty awesome! It was tiny for a Halibut, but it was a Halibut none the less and I caught one!
So that was two weeks ago, and my comp caught nothing when we went out that time, so I fixed his set-up then we went back out last Thursday after I emailed you guys and I was just destroying the fish! I caught one Sole every cast for my first 5 casts, only 2 of them were big enough to be great eating, and I caught a crab. MY COMP didn't catch anything. He was so ticked off. Hahah, and then I was like "Ok if I can use your pole and I catch a fish then it means it's you not the pole." So we swapped poles and within 6 minutes of my first cast I caught a little cod! HE WAS SO BUGGED! It was hilarious. He just couldn't believe that I was catching em and he hadn't caught one! And that's how the day ended! Elder Winterrose - 7 critters Elder C - 0!
Well that's about it for this week in Valdez! I cant wait to hear from you guys again! I love and miss you guys! Talk to you later!!
