    Default Who's heading out for Halibut

    Ok, now that spring is in the air I just wonder when people are heading out for some butt? I'm heading out the first week of may. If the seas are right I going all the way out to Montegue from Whitter.

    Thumbs up Count me in! ....... as soon as

    I can get past the tax deadline!

    Haven't had a chance to even think about breaking the boat out.

    Still have a list of maintenance items I need to complete as well as a few 'upgrades' that I would like to have done before the season gets kicked into high gear.

    Barring anything unforeseen, I will have the boat in the water before the 15th of May (nice little bear hunt planned for the week after).

    Here's to the next 4 days passing QUICKLY!

    it's usually the first week of may for me as well... usually good weather (knock on wood) and often provides some of the best fishing of the year. i'm a deep creek/anchor point fisher, but am looking forward to exploring PWS this year a lot more.

    fishing isn't about life or death... it's more important than that.

    Sounds like another tax-man in the mix. I can't wait to get past the 17th myself.

    LOL. Good point. He got me good as well.

    The first fishing trip for me won't be until early June (combo halibut trip with a fly out for some grayling/lakers) so I'll have to live through you boys until then.

    Talking Yakutat

    My first trip is the 27th of April, I assume Halibut/ King combo. I'll be fishing Yakutat this summer, arriving the 18th so I'll post a snow/ weather report. I can't wait to see the Situk in action all summer long! I'll guide in the salt though. Happy fishing to everybody!

    I almost had to pawn the family off to pay IRS. It still hurts to sit down. Gambler where were you when I needed you the most.

    If your taxes are less than six digits, quite whining.

    Default Yeah

    It doesn't matter what I pay, I'm always pissed about it. Especially when a large percentage of it goes to welfare. I could be using it for more fishing/hunting items as appossed to paying some dead beats rent.

    LoL

    Same place I am right now, same place I will be for the next 3 days, same place I have been for the past 65 straight days . . . stuck behind my desk!

    Come on 17th


    Seriously though, look at it this way, if you are paying a lot of $$ in taxes, that SHOULD mean you are making a lot of money.

    Had an attorney friend come in yesterday. The last thing he said before he walked out was "I hope next year I have a huge tax bill".

    Keep it all in perspective.

    boy I wish I could pay a large amount of taxes, that means I'd be making a ton of money
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    went to Homer this weekend, and pulled a couple of small butt out, and found all the broken stuff I need to fix before I get serious on the next trip.
