    Nice job fishook.

    I'm thinking back to my last trip on that vessel. The hookup and landing spots look VERY familiar from the captain's vantage point. Even the fish looks to be about the same size. What's that beast weigh.... 37-38?

    BTW.... nice rodholders!

    Nice fish. Yes last night was a great night to be drifting. I took the kids out and enjoyed some nice and sunny weather. It was actually a little hot. I loved it. Not too many boats on the water. Only a couple of boats in each good hole. We didn't land a king as nice as yours, but we did catch a little Jack on eggs and spin/glo. It makes the trip better to at least catch somethin.

    Doc like you would say (off on a real Nantucket sleigh ride) he smashed a K-15 pealing off 175 feet in no time then turned out & up river, I put the boat in a slide then he finely turned down river & the chase was on, we landed it just above world record hole.

    Was fishing a K-15 with a 7-ft leader to the main line & diver, it was really to long & made it hard to net the fish while doing the Kenai river dance around the boat. The only resend for the long leader was that particular kwik fish is a swimmer.

    Yep... 7 ft is pushing it for leader length. Unless you're real tall.... or have a 6 ft -plus net handle.... or have a real wide boat (so the rod man can back up away from the gunnel at the last instant), running a 7 ft leader makes for a REALLY tough net shot!

    But fishook is a DBM stud. Putting happy smiles on people's faces has become his specialty. Here's another one that took us for a Nantucket sleigh ride thru the exact same water 2 years ago....








    Man that RiverWolf drifter sure has a LOT more room when two of the seats are missing!

    It all depends on the day your going to fish? If its on Monday fishing between Centennial campground to the Pillars is a good bet, then calling a taxi for the chase all in all the cost will be around 35 bucks. If fishing on any other days with the raft I would float from Izaak Walton by the sterling hwy bridge down to Swiftwater Campground do to the amount of power boat traffic using Alaska canoe 262-2331 as a shuttle service.

    thanks......I'll likely be fishing alone so the taxi is out lol. I'd hate to loose my gear and raft while I'm shuttling.
