    Hey Gang:

    I just got back from 4 days out in the Prince William Sound Area Near Whiitier, AK. It was the most AWESOME Trip I have been on in my LIFE. Got to see some absolutely Scenic areas, 3 Black bears Seals, Sea Otters, and Glaciers. We Caught over 800 Shrimp. These are shrimp They call Spots and Coon Tails. They are Big Shrimp and are very sweet tasting. At the market Price we caught about $750 worth. LOL We were only using 2 shrimp pots and are allowed to use 5 but out Puller is too week to pull 5. Next Year we will have a puller to set 5 at a time. We set the pots in about 500 feet of water. That is where we had the best luck. I am attaching a Pic of me holding up a couple of the Shrimp. If you want to see all the Pics I took you can go to:

    When to click on the link about, it will take a while to load
    as there is about 70 Pics.

    Post more later:

    Looks like some mighty fine eating there Gene. Wish I would have know that you are in Kenai when I was up there about a month ago. Would have stopped by and said howdy. Well maybe next year as I hope to be able to make the trip again. Just love it up there and them salmon and halibut sure are fun to tangle with.

    Ole buddy, you weren't kiddin when you was telling us about that trip of a lifetime. That is one beautiful place up there and we couldn't be happier for you both. When you described your trip to me it felt like I was right there with you. It took a while to load the pictures but it sure as worth it. Man I can just taste that moose, halibut and shrimp right now, Ya'll are going to be eating mighty fine this winter. I bet it was some really peaceful sleeping in the boat for a few nights too. Thanks for sharing your dream come true with us buddy.
