    Thumbs up That IS funny

    What I've noticed is that people get their days figured out, and seem to always return on those exact days every single year.

    I think your dice have better odds of success than the method I said in my first sentence.

    I have an easier solution, Tony, but it's all on you.

    If you get back in-state and the offer still stands for the Kenai boat, I'll go that route. No pressure, though, seriously. I do want to do the Kenai just once and actually get some fish, though. If you're not back, I'll do the Copper. I may end up with a proxy to get on the Copper if I head back that way, so even without a supplemental for myself, I'll have plenty of fish to get to make the trip worth the run. driver.gif

    Yep. I always put in for vacation time on the same days in July each year. Makes it easy to plan a trip and we know what to expect. I fish Kasilof these days, but have fished the Copper and Kenai as well. Not as many people at Kasilof (although that is changing every year) and the Copper is a bit too dangerous to make me feel comfortable taking the kids along.
    Just a bitter Alaskan clinging to his guns and religion.....

    I can't dipnet because I am a nonresident. During my many trips to Alaska, most have been in July (like this year) but I have been there in every month from May to August. Enjoyed every day of every trip. Even the cold, rainy ones that I was not prepared for (found out my rain jacket was poorly designed for Alaska rain!). I have no luck so far getting my wife to take a trip in September (our anniversary month). I've been told it is a great month to fish for silvers.
