Just got an update from two boats that were out there the last couple days. One boat, 3 out of 4 bears stalked bears taken, many seen and the other boat saw 7, got a stalk on 2 and got both. They said now that the sun has come out the bears are out more.
Coast guard boarded one of the boats on the way out of the sound so make sure you have your stuff together when going out, life jackets, registration, all safety equipment and make sure it isn't expired. They also ran all the passangers drivers licence on the boat.
Fish and Game also boarded both boats to check animals taken. They were out as fas as Jackpot Bay so that is a good distance from Whittier. Hides and meat were at a camp of one boat and the Fish and Game followed the boat back to camp to check out the stuff so make sure you up up tight on your stuff.
