While I stayed home over the 4th and did a lot of baking, my husband went out fishing with a buddy for a long weekend. They went out of Whittier, in Prince William Sound. It was a quite successful trip. His share was 1 1/2 Ling Cods (they couldn’t keep 4 total, their limit, because their cooler was full!), 4 Halibut, 3 Red Salmon (Sockeye), and about 7 gallons of shrimp! So, remember, I said that was his share, so they came back with double that amount. He got to spend the day vacuum-packing it all. Not fun, but nice to have in your freezer. We had shrimp for dinner last night, and salmon tonight. It’s funny that it’s only July and our freezer is almost full….



  1. Wow! I’ve booked us to go salmon fishing out of Juneau when we’re there during our MIL Alaska cruise next month. I don’t know who is more excited, my husband or my boys!

  2. Amy-I’m sure you all will have a great time while in Juneau. Maybe the weather will cooperate and decide to get sunny by then. I’ve never fished out of Juneau, but I know there is a lot of good halibut fishing there. Hope your cruise ends up being a lot of fun!

  3. WOW – I am jealous. I have only learned to enjoy fisha nd would love to have a supply of fresh fish.

  4. That is one HUGE fish! Very cool! I used to date a guy up in Washington State that did a lot of fishing. It was fun having fresh fish. At least that makes up for the lack of fresh fruits and veggies up in Alaska year round.
