I did not make it up there this year beacuse of this place called Iraq... But I will tell you that our local grocery here in Minot, ND had Atlantic salmon on sale for 5.99/pound. Agree, not the same as Kenai or Kasiloff reds..... I did some calculations and figured that we'd need atleast 15 pounds for treats through the winter. So I loaded up my Bradley and smoked 15 pounds worth... Hindsight being what it is.... Obviously, I would have rather been up there to catch them. All I can say is that I can't wait until we retire and move back! That and I miss Ak Amber on draught at VFW post 9785 in Eagle River. Anyway, take it easy up there and enjoy what they don't have down here!!!!
