Dateline.....................Valdez, Alaska, 8/14/07

Departed Valdez breakwater on Marty Kay a four packer sport fishing boat. Very nice craft, lots of teak decking and trim, Volvo diesel powered. Trolling with downriggers landed a limit (six wild silver salmon per angler, total of twenty-four fish) in one hour and twenty minutes. Total time at sea two hours. My catch dressed out to thirty-three pounds of fillets. Suzanna, the owner/skipper would make a great wife, but I already have one.............That is all...........................Jim Goodspeed

Jim, your post is a tease...but left out most important points?

How, was the flying bugs situation which is common in Alaska?

But, again what happen to the 33 pounds of salmon fillets?

On the married part...today their is a 67 year old Israeli man looking for
his 9th wife? Anything comes to mine, Jim?

I was up in that area the week of Sept. 15th on a cruise. I don't recall even one mosquito! I know they have them but suspect they are more prevalent during the "warmer" months...like maybe July?? I saw lots of boats out fishing for salmon. Some were clearly charter types, like maybe 35 footers with half a dozen anglers. But many others were pretty small motorboats on the order of 14-15 feet. They were not in the open ocean but rather, were in the sea channels. And the fishing looked great!

I have a number of employees that head that direction every year fishing even though we get salmon running up the Columbia River right here in town. The limits are better in Alaska and the numbers and quality of fish is phenomenally better!
