The train ride is pretty cool... cool enough not to fall asleep after only 3 hours sleep getting up here.
THE SCREENSHOT OF A CAMERAPHONE PICTURE PICTURE TAKEN ON A MOVING TRAIN THROUGH THE WINDOW... Doesn't do it justice!

I can Report Seward yesterday was full of life! Salmon jumping, Orca hunting, Fin Whales movin fast, Dall Porpoise jamming, otters chillin, Seals and Sealions doing their thing... The Bubble Netting Humpbacks capped off a perfect wearther low swell day. We listened and watched then do it all around the boat. Again this picture doesn't begin to capture the magic!

After 2 aborted landings... We punched through the muck and made a textbook sketchy as F landing! The important thing is will be fishing in the morning!

Shit conditions trying to get out of the harbor... but our Captain was smart and put the boat on the other side of the island...Glass on the lee side.
snow in the mountains, lots of life everywhere, we drifted for limits of halibut... did a few fillet and release. Cod filled the bucket. Not too bad for day 1.

While a lot of folks (and captains) complain about Pacific cod as bycatch, they are delicious eating. I know Alaskans who prefer them to halibut. They also happen to make great halibut bait!

Oddly enough the cod is more expensive in the restaurants

Another Day of limits on Halibut, kings (small), and some black bass... our Captain gave it his best but... no barn doors... I can't fish with the wife in Sporty weather.... but fishing on this side of the aquarium is still amazing!
Only 4 more fishing days....
We fished Whales pass.

Eagles Wings was very nice. For taking a wife there is no question this is a great place... As a fisherman you really need to make sure Mark is your Captain though... Accept no replacement! You don't want the captain that takes seasick medicine, and can't read a fishfinder! Typical California swell would turn this New Well build boat back to "safe" fishing... We missed out on some great fishing because of this.
The food was excellent, the resort hired a Husband and wife team for cooking and really making our time there great.
Our Cabin was awesome and very private, there are cabins or a small lodge... Max 8 people on the 3 acre property. We felt very catered too.
