If you'll remember, my last halibut trip (which was supposed to be my first) was a bust. So when Scott came home on Monday night and asked if I wanted to go the next day, the answer was an immediate "yes"!
We arranged for the girls to spend the day with the Burgoon-Duffus family (Josh, Stephanie, and Austin--thanks a million!) and Scott and I headed out with Captain Day of Prince William Sound Eco-Charters.
In short, it was an amazing experience! The fishing was fun, the weather was perfect and the scenery was spectacular. My catch for the day amounted to two halibut and a yellow eye rockfish, pictured below. Scott caught a Pacific Cod, which he chose to release. A couple from Georgia was also on our trip, celebrating their 26th wedding anniversary with a 5 day Alaskan Adventure. It was certainly off to a good start, I'd say! They took home 3 halibut, a smaller one, a medium sized one, and a larger one.
