    What the heck is that fish in the pic above the moose pic? Looks like some prehistoric monster fish.

    Looks like you are having a great time Lou. You and the misses be careful. There is critters up there that can eat you. LOL

    Thanks trapper. Never heard of it. That's not saying much though. I'm a Crappie, Bluegill guy. Exotic fishing for me is the Rainbow and Brown Trout I've caught. :)

    Our 2005 fishing trip. Smallest Halibut 108 pounds "drained" weight. Largest was 231 pounds. Big one took an hour of fighting to get it into the boat. 2 ling cod (48 and 50 pounds). Awesome day!

    We put the boat in at Skilak. We fished the Kenai river 120 miles out of anchorage. Was not worried about bears because we both carried a 454 casul

    Cuban... I assume you had terrific fights on a fly rod catching those salmon?

    Blade, yes they were a kick in the pants on a fly rod. Especially the one I hooked in the taIL. He was a big one and it took one hour to net him. This was a trip of a lifetime, the weather was 75 everyday. we fished until 1:00 am on Sat and this was the sunset

    Damn Cuban.....I'm up here right now. Limited on sockeye this morning out of Talkeetna. Took some Halibut & a Lingcod out of Valdez last Thursday, looks like the same 1st mate in your Lingcod picture....
