    back from Alaska, and caught this little guy

    Just got back from an 8 day trip to Alaska, caught some King Salmon, sockeyes, and a few Halibut. landed this little guy you see here, weighed 103lbs. I had two others hooked up that were far bigger. lost one at the boat that was estimated to be 160#+ and had another break a 250lb leader. Had the trip of a lifetime. I highly suggest to anyone that if you can get up there and see that place, what a wild, wild, wonderful place!

    Shipped back 53lbs of halibut filets and have almost 20 pounds of salmon coming later this month. They vaccum sealed and flash froze it into 1.5lb packs. most incredible place I have ever seen. go and do it!!

    We flew up to Anchorage, rented an RV and drove around to different places. We got a guide service out of Seward for the Halibut. the Halibut trip was about $300/per person. the flight costs vary and then you have to drive to seward so costs can be a big range of numbers depending on how you do it. we stayed for 8 days and did some other guided trips for King and Sockeye salmon while we were there. The cost of shipping the filets back, overnight, was about $6/pound and that gets it vacuum wrapped in portion sizes (1-1.5lb) packs, flash frozen and shipped over-night. But fresh halibut was going for $27.99/lb so it becomes worth it.
