Don left this morning at 10, and came back a little after 3. They had quite a successful trip. Don said he caught over a dozen halibut, but you're only allowed to keep 2. He also caught several cod, which he kept as well since cod is good to eat, too!
Don wanted me to discard this picture, but I think it's cute. I was up in the trailer looking down at him, so the angle makes him look shorter and like his pants are pulled up high.
This is Bruce, the owner of Reel Em Inn. He's a very friendly guy, and he and his wife Charlene have made this business a nice one.
The top side of a halibut is dark, as they blend into the ocean floor as they hunt along the bottom.
The other four people on the boat were a family from northern California who were staying in Soldotna and decided to go fishing. They have no idea how they're going to get their fish home. The last I heard they were going to have it frozen and shipped via UPS.
Charlene is busy cleaning OUR fish. That pile there is all ours.
Charlene then vacuum-packed my fish using a commercial vacuum machine that does 4 packages at a time.
These fillets, minus the big cod fillet we ate for dinner, weighed 28 pounds.
Believe it or not, I was able to get it all in the freezer!
