One of the scariest boat rides of my life was on that lake. I hiked my clients out after taking them down the canyon, the lake was to rough and then had to go down and get the boat across. I kissed the boat ramp when I got there. ahh the memories!That's it.
It was a great day with great people! My wife still talks about her 50#Halibut, I'll hear about it for a long time for sure. Clamming tomorrow!
Great looking fish AKaviator and CC. Your wife will never let you live that down CC. My wife still talks about getting her salmon limit and halibut limit before me.
I was going to ups a 50lb duffel from fairbanks last year thinking it would be cheaper than the $150 3rd bag fee delta wanted. Ups wanted $260All of the processors are set up to pack in insulated boxes. They vacume pack and freeze everything. The boxes are designed to hold 50# and meet "excess baggage" requirements. Alaska Airlines charges $25. They say it will keep the contents frozen for 24 to 36 hours. I also made sure the motels we are staying at before & after the flight can store my frozen stuff.
We brought a duffle bag with boots, rain gear and heavy jackets as excess baggage on the flight up. I am going to the UPS store next and have it packaged and shipped home UPS. That frees up my excess baggage allotment.
Congrats SirTonight is the last night on the Kenai as we leave in the morning for Anchorage and fly home on Saturday. It has been a glorious 27 days. Seen some spectacular country, caught some fish and saw lots of wildlife. Made some new friends and want to come back to see more. It is addicting.
