    I am just glad they finally got the Gulkana CLOSED for Kings. There were too many targeting the very few spawners that were making it to the river. This fishery needs to be protected better and it is best if people would just leave them alone, when they are in jeapordy. It is better to leave a few fish in the river for future runs.

    Thanks, Matt!
    Nothing cool other than it's just the tracking device for F&G. My husband had a few of those last year when he guided.
    If you miss Alaska, this means that you should return and retire here!

    Good grief! Does this mean that I am Alaskan yet, AKRES... ?!?!? Or do I still have to learn how to use a chainsaw???

    Ha! Isn't that something! It was a good thing that I didn't catch my first King with you in Seward. (winks) I guess I know why now!

    Thanks for the congrats. It was pretty fun! We will definitely be doing this yearly, but our guide is retiring next year.
    That means that we get to do a retirement party for him through the month of June next year!

    Were you fishing with Tyler Meinhold? Just recognized Swivel in the boat with y'all. Nice fish!

    There is none other!!
    He likes to be refered to as 'Tyler the Great'. It reminds him back in his 3rd grade years! He'd get a good chuckle if he knew that I was telling you that!
    Swivel is such a good, good doggie. I really enjoyed having him along the ride with us.
    You can see a picture of Tyler behind me in my King picture.
    He's seriously contimplating retiring this next year, LastFrontierLabs. We'd like to all be down there next year for his 'going away' month long party/get together on the Gulkana.

    We were fishing there on Sunday and had gone down the weekend before that when all of the Navy/Marines were there fishing. We were in the "camo" Extreme Shallow with the brown canvas.

    We sold Swivel to Tyler and she is a good boat dog for him.
