Alaska Fishing Trip

I'm finally getting around to blogging about the boys' fishing trip. They stayed in a lodge in Gustavus, Alaska and got to fish everyday for 5 days. I really can't see the fun in that but the guys absolutely LOVE it. Rick has gone for the past 4 or 5 years and I'm sure will go again next year if given the chance! Here is Rick, Sky, Gary, and Bob Askerlund, a family friend.
They each caught one and so it's time to head in. Gary's on the boat enjoying the fresh air waiting to bring in a big one!
He's got one on line!! His biggest catch of the trip was a 95lb halibut! Way to go Gare!

Skylar's turn to bring one in!
Yes!! Here it is!! A big UGLY Ling cod......not much to look at but pretty good eatin':)

Here's the group minus two. Yes, that's a girl on the front row. (Bria Titmus) The first day there she caught a 293 lb halibut!! That's what you call GIRL POWER! A few days later her recored was broken with a 324lber caught by my nephew Derek. I wish I had a pic. It was an absolute monster! Way to go guys!! Now we have a freezer full of halibut. I am willing to share if anyone would like some!!
