On The Grid
One of the most frequent questions I get over the last 15 years as a fishing guide is "what do you do all fall, winter, and spring?" Well, that's an easy one.. I fish! In addition to holding a Halibut Charter Permit and having a 25' Almar Sounder to guide out of, I hold an Alaskan Power Troll Permit and own a 40' Commercial Salmon Troller named the "Glory". It's an amazing boat, and very fun for me to fish out . So, in addition to full guiding schedule, I also fish all fall, winter, and spring. It is a lot of fishing, and I love every minute of it.
Yesterday I put it up on the tidal grid in town to change out some zincs, and just give it a general inspection. A grid is place where you pull onto on an extreme high tide, and then when the tide goes out you work on the bottom. It's a bit stressful to get it all aligned right, but well worth it to keep those zincs clean and catching king salmon. All went well and this morning at high tide I pulled her off and put my boat back in the slip. Now I'm ready to go chase some king salmon for the next few months!
