WHOAH: What a season!

WHOAH: What a season!

The fact that it's winter and I'm only now recapping our summer is proof of the following:
A) general confusion since in recent years our winters up here in Alaska are warmer and our summers are cooler
B) life with various jobs, two young kiddos and a new puppy flies by
C) all of the above
ANSWER: C!

 

 

We are so filled with gratitude for the richness of this last summer.  Not only were we in Bristol Bay, AK for the largest recorded salmon return in history with our brand-new boat the F/V Maggie B., but it was also the first season our children, Maggie (5.5) and Ben (3.5), came aboard as deckhands for the very end of the season.  Then our family of four brought the boat back home to Homer through Lake Iliamna.  2018 was truly a season of a lifetime, in salmon caught and memories made!

 

Here is a photo and video collection of our high points:

Happy to see Poppa after 2 months, but gosh he's stinky!

 

Maggie and Ben's first set ever commercial salmon fishing!

 

Perfecting the salmon hug (a King Salmon.)

Teaching a 3.5 year old how to pick a salmon.

 Maggie on the hydraulics bringing the net in, Ben picking fish!

 

Scrubbing down the reel.

Bringing the boat home, headed up the Kvichak River.

Sport fishing on the Kvichak.  What a beauty!

Look out world, here they come!  Island hopping, Lake Iliamna, Alaska.

Hauling out in Williamsport, Alaska.

Up and over the mountain pass from Lake Iliamna to Cook Inlet, Alaska.

Leaving Iniskin Bay, headed across Cook Inlet.

 

In this holiday season we are so thankful to know the beauty and wildness that Alaska has to offer and so hopeful that the rich resources of Alaska will be preserved for future generations.

Thank you for sharing in our journey and our business!!
