We're losing track of how many years we have been fishing together. Michael and Beth have only missed a couple of years in the last decade and a half, or so. And , we have been losing track of the number of fish caught and released on this trip. Steve and Bessy have joined in , as they have in several recent years, for these two day fishing trips, and this time fishing with Eiji again. As is in previous years, Bessie has been the standout fish catcher , and if we knew the secret we'd bottle it. That boat released a lot of fish.
It's wonderful , you have made your reservations for next year !
There was lots of herring and krill around , and two humpback whales came by .

It was three generations of fishing fun over two days . We came in at each midday for a crew change so that everyone could get some of the action . Aidan , the teenager , is the keenest of all , and eagerly assisted from setting the gear to netting the occasional fish.
Thanks everyone for coming again this year. What a wonderful excuse to get all the ages together .

At one point Brent had a fish on when a humpback whale surfaced near us. There has been talk in the news recently about keeping a 100 metres distance from those animals, but this one didn't read the paper. I tried but couldn't get a shot of both of them together. There are lots of herring around for whales and salmon.
