salmon fishing in garabaldi

We spent a week down in Garabaldi with a house rented in bay city.

Salmon fishing was difficult with only a few bites.

We had a great time and looking forward to fishing with these guys in the future.

Tuna fishing on the coast

Offshore 24 in Newport, OR

Spent a couple days at the coast with a group of forestry guys who invested in this boat.

We dropped crab pots, tried halibut fishing, but we where most successful with tuna fishing. Was a great time with the house they rented, and the weather was good.

Alaska Landing Craft Job

LMC in Lituya Bay, Alaska

I piloted this 1955 steel LMC around south east alaska for about two weeks.

We where using a helicopter to bring 700 lb propane tanks to the top of mountains. Replenishing for the remote radio repeaters for the USCG. Weather was a big factor as the mountain tops where getting socked in quite often.
