Early on a rainy morning we chartered Captain Chris’s U-Rascal in Kodiak, Kodiak Island, Alaska, USA, for a day of sea fishing.  The eight of us caught quite a lot of fish (25 rockfish, 8 salmon, 11 halibut and a few other fish that we used for bait).  The crew cleaned all the fish and gave us quite a few bags of fillets that we brought back to the ship where the chefs in the seafood/steak restaurant prepared dinner for us and some friends for two evenings.  We (and another fisherman/chef) also kept some fillets in our refrigerator and freezer in our apartment for lunches and dinners that we will cook in our apartment’s kitchen for us and some friends.  Notwithstanding the stormy weather, it was a fun and fulfilling day at sea.  And the fish at our group dinners in the restaurant was fresh, well prepared and delicious!  A wonderful way to celebrate the success of our fishing.

  1. Fun photos. Had either of you done much fishing before? It looks pretty impressive that you wrangled those large fish onboard. And I saw nothing about being seasick so either the water was calm or you are very good sailors.
