    Default Taking a 24 footer boat down to Kenai to dipnet..Who wants in?

    As said, I just got back from a trip to NY and missed dipping until now. I need bodies to help dip while I drive the boat, can't do it by myself. Who wants to meet me down there and help get us some fish? I drive, you help dip, we both get some fish. My partner was there last week when the fish showed and he is now committed at work, he has a full pantry and doesn't need to go again, I do!!!!
    PM me or e-mail me at Federico@ptialaska,net.
    I'm thinking of dragging the boat down, maybe tomorrow night, Monday, and staying on it until maybe friday. Won't have to pull it out till Friday. That is a four day window to jump on. Who has the time?????
    If a dipnetter dips a fish and there is no one around to see/hear it, Did he really dip?

    Ken, you may have to snag somebody up at the bridge. Where you going to launch? Oh, yeah, just remembered the donuts. Never mind.

    Since I was suddenly called back to work and will be stuck out here for a full month before I get back, I'm half tempted to loan you my permit and my wife... but then I thought better of that arrangement and how it sounds

    Actually, she's been working non-stop over at the fish camp processing everyone else's dipnet fish. But she's been flossing reds during breaks. If the run continues as strong as it is, she'll have met our fish needs for the winter just from sport fishing efforts and daily bag limits.
    Winter is Coming...

    Just in case, she is more than welcome to jump aboard and dip too. Just have her call me and let me know!!!

    I'd love to and bring a couple of my kids for the experience but I'm afraid after my take on the weekend I'd be both fired and divorced if I took off dipnetting again.

    Ken, I've been trying to find someone with a boat for 3 weeks now! Unfortunately, my family and I won't be going down until Friday night. Good luck on the river!
    I may be slow, but I get where I'm going!

    Talked to him today. He's still on the Kenai. His phone got slime on/in it, so he had to turn it off for awhile. Should be able to reach him now.

    My phone went dead from yesterday till this Early PM. Sorry to all I promised to call and couldn't. At least my phone eventually came back to life but I know I missed some people that I said I would call. Blame technology and moisture, they don't mix!!!

    Thanks for letting me know. I used to be good at keeping it open, but since an upgrade on this site made it painfully less obvious where the watermark was I'm good at maintaining it.... Not so much. Clearing space now... Thanks again.

    Added info minutes later: Hmmm, system said I'd only occupied 30 per cent of my space. Oh well, I deleted them all anyway. If Ironartists assessment is accurate, mods, you've got a troublecall on your hands.
