OK...not really. That being said, Southeast rocks! I was born and raised in Alaska and have spent a great deal of time on the water, but I've never had the pleasure of spending time in Southeast. This weekend my wife and I went down to join my brother and a friend of his for a couple of days on the water. It only ended up being one day spent on the water due to some issues beyond our control, but man...I saw enough to know that I'll be a frequent visitor to Southeast in the future. My brother was hoping that we'd like it enough to consider going in on a simple cabin with him. Man, we're sold. On the first night we were welcomed with a dinner of king crab, tanner crab, spot and coonstripe shrimp, and halibut - all fresh out of the ocean that day.
The next day we started with some king trolling, where my wife quickly boated this white king:
We later moved on to pulling some dungeness pots:
And later some shrimp pots, though we didn't pull out the camera. Man...what a fantastic weekend! I know I'd miss the high alpine if I lived in Southeast, but still, you folks down that way have a pretty magical playground that you call home.
