    Friday afternoon I was contacted by my friend Tracy, you know th on who whooped Shelly's ass at fishing, in Florida (sorry, my sexy lil bitch) :) ...well, anyway, he asked if I wanted to go fishing, Saturday, with he and his friends , I said HELL YEAH!!!!!

    We traveled up to Long Lake, 40 miles north of Palmer just south of the Matanuska Glacier.

    We arrived aroun 3 pm, The wind was blowing a lil bit, it was chilly, the sky was overcast, until the early evening.

    Tracy and his friend Bart starting drilling holes in the ice

    After a while we all started getting Dolly Vardens, Tracy has more pictures to add later.

    Here is Tracy and Bart sitting waiting for the fish to jump out of the hole.

    As you can see WE DROVE ONTO THE ICE!!!!!!

    After a while, Tracy was wondering why he was getting bit, so he thought he would have a heart to heart talk with these fish, down there

    [​IMG]

    Everyone thought that was a good idea too...

    [​IMG]

    Well, it worked....

    Bart got himself a 5 lb Bourbot (spelling)

    [​IMG]

    The area surrounding the lake was amazing

    it started getting dark, so we decided to build a fire next the fishing holes

    [​IMG]

    and it was cold!!!!!

    [​IMG]

    so I was all bundled up... (notice the jacket)

    [​IMG]

    Here is Tracy, trying to be coy....
    in his stupid hat

    Total fish count..
    Dolly Vardens.... LIMITS
    Bourbots.......... 6
    FISHING IN ALASKA.... PRICELESS


    Tracy will add more to this

    Couldnt have did a better post Terri! I think yea summed it up all well (Well almost), it was so damn cold out there! Brrr.... The Ice was at least 3 1/2 feet thick.. While drilling the holes, the motor on the auger went down to the ice. Another 6 inches of ice and we woulda been fooked!

    Below are some fishin pics of the Artic Char and Burbot.. I fryed some of em up today, they are a mighty tasty fish.. small, but tasty!

    Notice I said Artic Char and Burbot.. One day Terri will learn her Alaskan fish LOL The smaller fish are Artic Char and the bigger ones are the burbot.
