Just back from an Alaska fishing trip

My buddy Chris and I just had a very relaxing week fishing with a few friends in Alaska.
Here are some images in no particular order. As you can see, life is grand.
6 different versions of Rock Fish

A nice Yellow Eye run

My first Halibut

Scott & his Ling Cod

Our friend art knows where to go to find the fish

Chris with the smaller of his two Halibuts. I cannot post an image of the bigger one as the guy working the gaff let it go.

Yes, our friend Scott is insane, however, he did bring back 5 fish from his Kyack excursion

This put a huge smile on my face when I saw it break water


This is what I call awesome fishing conditions

It is a Yellow Eyed Rock Fish. To me it is not unlike the Red Snapper we have here on the east coast, however, I think it is the best tasting fish I have ever had.

Yes, we catch those here in NY. Nice fish, but not as delicate a flavor as Yellow Eye
