Today, Saturday, September 5 Jeremy and I spent the entire day fishing with a guided fishing tour. We used a company called "Big Blue Charters." It was retardedly expensive, but totally fun and worth it. If you added up all the fish I caught in New Mexico in my entire life, they probably equaled in mass to two of the ten fish or so I caught in Alaska.
Thanks to Jeremy for setting up the entire fishing part of the trip.
Jeremy and I hit the water at 6:00 a.m. Alaska time (4:00 a.m. New Mexico time.) This is why it is still dark, and I was tired.
The part of Alaska we went to is a coniferous rain forest, in the mountains, in the ocean.
This was some sort of special pink colored rock fish that a person can only get one per year of. AND I GOT ONE SUKKA!
I caught one of the the two salmon we caught during this trip. The weather was not that great, and it was towards the very end of their fishing season, but it was still fun.
This sort of looks photoshopped, but it isn't. The guy taking the picture wanted to get it from an angle that made the fish look as big as possible.
Jeremy caught one salmon that was 27.5 inches long, and it had to be 28 inches long to keep it. Below is a video of him reeling it in. Unfortunately, I didn't actually get a shot of the fish he grabbed.
Fishing in Alaska was fun. I caught the majority of the fish out of our four person guided tour (I have good luck.) However, we weren't able to keep as many rock fish as we caught, and that was all we hit our daily limit on. We didn't catch many fish, but I'm still glad we went.
