and now, for something completely different….

After my trip to the Y-K Delta, I headed down to the Kenai Peninsula to do some photography for Trophy King Lodge. It’s a beautiful place with great food and excellent fishing for salmon and halibut.




Above, a few views from the lodge.  Birds seen while out fishing included Harlequin Ducks, Common Murres, Pigeon Guillemots, Marbled Murrelets, Horned & Tufted Puffins, Black-legged Kittiwakes, Short-tailed Shearwaters and my first ever Fork-tailed Storm Petrel.

At the end of the week a friend set up a Ling Cod trip with Ninilchik Saltwater Charters. We made a 60 mile run out into the gulf and had our first 4 Lings in the boat after about 10 minutes of fishing!

  A Ling Cod takes a whackin!

Another pretty face.

   Lings and Rockfish were stacking up.

A pile of fish ready for the freezer!
