Another iconic Alaskan experience is fishing. So many fishing opportunities are available: trout, grayling, 5 types of salmon, halibut, in the river, the bay, the gulf and the ocean. We chose Seward regulations allow 3 silver salmon from the gulf and 3 more from Resurrection Bay. The ride to the fishing ground was 1.5 hours; all full bore, plowing through swells and other wakes. Chase thought it was great; Karen wanted a chiropractor.
Captain Dave knew we arrived when he found a large number of puffin since they follow the fish. He was right. After we dropped the lines, it took minutes even seconds for a FISH ON call. Our group of 6 people caught the maximum of 18 silver salmon within 25 minutes. From there we moved into the bay, and Grandpa David caught another 2 more, the other 5 came back with their original three. For the three people from our family the net weight was 36 pounds of filets.
Enough to completely fill a freezer in our RV and lots of good eating for a long time coming.
