Salmon season is in full effect in southeast this year. With the lack of a serious pink run, chum salmon are the hot species this year. The southern chum run has been strong at Kendrick, while the northern chum scene has been invigorated by Amalga Harbor. It’s the first chance seiners have ever had to fish this area. Typically, it’s a DIPAC hatchery program operated by a bidding process for only a few boats. Seiners will have one last chance to battle for Chum this Thursday. It should be quite a show. Good Luck, guys!
The Juneau Maritime Festival just turned three this past weekend. The event was initially canceled the previous week, yet many locals and tourists turned out for the free salmon! That’s right! Fresh FREE Sockeye salmon courtesy of Alaska Glacier Seafoods. There were also various tours of local marine vessels and native traditional dancing. Overall, it was a big success. Enjoy the pics.
Its been clear and cold in Gastineau Channel the past few days. Even though, the temperatures are bone-chillingly cold, Juneau locals are excited to get out and absorb their rare dose of wintertime vitamin D. The entire lake in front of the glacier froze over, allowing for awesome pics of glacier ice. At times, it felt like an alien world out there. Its always hard to shake the idea that the ice could break at any given moment. Still the photos were worth it. I’m loving the new Sony Nex.
