      Snoodie Goes To Alaska

      DH Customs painted up some 16 oz. jigs for this years Alaska saltwater fishing trip. Uncle Jimbo and I met my friend Brian for 3 days of fishing on his 30' boat the LINE STRETCHER.

      ON DAY ONE we turned LEFT out of Resurection Bay and fished on the outside of Montigue Island, about 85 miles out. We got our six halibut along with some dog sharks. Fishing was slow and the fish were smaller.

      Uncle Jimbo had big halibut day one with close to a 80# fish. We formulated a plan over a well earned Captain and Coke back at the dock after the fish were cleaned.

      ON DAY TWO we dropped our fish filets off at the processer and put $400 worth of gas in Line Stretcher and off we went at 36 MPH but this time we turned RIGHT out of Resurrection Bay and continued on to the NUKA Bay area.

      Snoodie really shined this day, I happened to snag a big octopus and Brian and I were able to relieve him of three of his tentacles before he fought us off and made his escape. Well a chunk of octopus on a 16 oz. snoodie with a 10" twister tail looks and smells like a halibuts favorite food !! Things were about to get fun.

      Brings back some great memories of trips gone by. Snoodie seems to travel well. Hope to see more great pics so I can be even more jealous. Congratulations on some fine fish.

      Getting back to the dock that night we didn't need Captain and Coke to fiqure out our day three spot. But we had some anyhow after the fish were cut up. We also collected salmon carcasses to fill the bait bag that we were hanging off the chain just above the anchor.

      DAY THREE, We caught more big Yellow Eyes and our six halibut but we hooked into two big fish. Uncle Jimbo's was huge Brian and I agree we have never seen a halibut head shakes so big and pull as hard as his fish fought. Unfortunatly the fish pulled the hook after about 5 minutes. Pic is of the big fish on.

      Been to Alaska one on fishing trip. Had a friend who had their own boat. Definitely should be on everyone who likes to fish bucket list. Halibut, king salmon, silver salmon, yellow eyes, and other fish I've forgotten. Great time.

      Couple pics of the FV Line Stretcher. 500HP burned about 110 gallons a day but we traveled hundreds of miles to find less pressured fish.

      If you're looking for someone to jabber with, on the trip up, I know of a guy. His kids could help watch your kids, to make the whole thing sail a little smoother.

      Man! What does a guy use to cut those big 'buts up? A broadsword, straight out of a Conan movie?

      Huff, are you going to make some more Halibut Bread? Ohh, that was good..!

      Dirty will probably come up with an excuse.

      PM me when he does.

      If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles.

      200#s hasn't been broken but i think it is close. Next year it will be between kitten paws and Uncle Jimbo to beat it. I'm the harpoon guy with the blue yummie in his hand.

      Oh we bought a whole store out of Bush light !! How many people can say they did that ??

      I'm getting better at making the filets fall off, on a positive note there were no brawls at the fish cleaning station this year.
