Today with a little help from Captain Ross, the Valhalla is ready to fish. Since spring is here, I decided 1 boat needs to be ready to fish. I haven't used the Valhalla much this winter due to the leaky raw water pump. The jabsco pump is around $700 was my reasoning for not fixing it. I have received a few calls from locals who want to go crabbing, bottomfishing, and hunting for a King Salmon. Figured I better be ready for those local Ketchikan Alaska people. Going to haul a couple downriggers and some fishing gear down tomorrow and do my first Ketchikan fishing charter on Sunday afternoon. Those sneaky little herring that were making the water boil the other day haven't been around. We should have jigged as many as we could the other day when they were here. The Herring we buy in Ketchikan are no where near the quality of fresh fish. It is nice to get ready for Ketchikan's busy charter fishing season now rather than later.
