A Flight, Fishing and Bears, OH MY

July 1, 2014
Soldotna, AK
warm and sunny

Our fishing charter didn't happen so I called Talon Air to find out when was their next flight out that had room, for fishing and bears.  They said "Can you be here in 1 1/2 hrs.  That's all it took.  We were ready to go in 30 min, with lunch and license in hand, and away we go.  I forgot to take pictures of the fish being reeled in, mostly because the boat was a little tipsy.  But we each got our limit of three Sockeye each, which gave us a real nice amount for our freezer.  So this is just pictures, hard to decide which ones to delete.


The lake that we landed in

this is two bears, mom and year old cub

river is thick with fish waiting waiting to go up through the rocks.

We BBQ'd one of the smaller salmon, was delicious.

 .........And a safe landing back home.

That's it for July 1st.

Thanks for stopping by
