A day late, many fish later, here I am.
My intent was to post daily, but, people, I’m tired! We’ve been getting up WAY too early for vacation days, and meeting our guides at 5:30 a.m., 6 a.m., and even 4:30 a.m.
Oh, yes, we have.
Thank the good Lord for my oilfield career that has trained me for early rising! All I wanna know is where's my freakin' Geritol??
Here are pictures from our Kasiloff River fishing trip. Have I told y’all it’s cold up here? It's cold as a....ah, never mind. Trust me, gentle readers. It's cold.
We fished with Ed O’Connor, who is the savvy proprietor of Advantage Angling in Soldotna, Alaska, and a Kenai Peninsula expert fisherman. I think we’re gonna call him "Ed, the Fish Whisperer". He surely knows his stuff!
Ed is professional, friendly, funny, and always remembers your name! Give him a call or drop him an email if you’re planning a trip. You can reach him through his website, Advantage Angling.
So, who brought in the first King Salmon of the day? My Facebook friends were betting on me, and they won.
Oh, yeah - That Janie Girl! My Facebook friends won that bet, but they also bet I would have the largest fish of the day. And I was rocking it most of the day, but, then...
ThatManILove brought in a 32 pounder himself!! Twerp!! So, he won our bet that day, yes, he did! I can't believe he had the nerve to show me up! Really, I was very excited for him. What a successful day Casa de la Vida Loca enjoyed!! Great company, excellent guide, lots of wildlife. You've gotta try it yourself!
We had a delightful trip on the Kasiloff. Tomorrow, to the Kenai River for float and wade fishing with our friends, who helped up set up this entire trip. (Glad they did, I would have been clueless.)
