Whittier to Seward for the winter

Well, Joe typically makes these blog posts but I thought I’d give it a try.  He, Caleb, Kevin Stickler, Ryan Breese & Larry Carmichael headed to Whittier 7:15 am on Sunday morning.  They were off and running about 11:30 (Joe called me during church service at Immanuel Baptist Church and I rushed out to answer […]

Felt Earthquake From Boat

As a follow up post to our Green Island trip I wanted to share a unique experience.  While sitting with Charles and Anne on their 24′ aluminum boat at anchor in about 20′ of water we felt all of a sudden as if we hit something, or went aground.  We jumped up, looked around and […]

Clearing Props and Shafts

  Yesterday went down to the boat to tackle 2 tasks.  First to figure out why my ac outlets were not working and after troubleshooting for an hour it came down to resetting a GCI – dohhhhh…. Next was diving to clear the props of rope and fishing line.  The water was very murky so […]

Humblizing – Staph on rear

  O.K. this post falls under the clear category of “TMI” but hey, I figure other folks might face this in the future and it might help along the way. So only read if you are not about to have a meal:) ——— Well this is not one of the typical Sundog Adventures that I […]

Dipnetting – Kenai River

One of my favorite parts of summer is the sites and sounds and experience of holding a 20 foot pole connected to a 5 foot hoop of gill net and waiting for a big old sockeye salmon to whack into the net while standing in the surf of the Kenail river.  With large numbers of […]

Maiden Voyage of the “Bounty Hunter”?

Well the jury is still out on the name of the boat but never the less we went out on the new to Mike Phelps 28′ aluminum boat for a test run last weekend out to Main Bay.  It was just a 24 hour trip to take the boat through it’s paces and, if all […]
