A bitter sweet. The Valhalla has been an awesome boat. I bought it in June of 2012 and have fished it since. We have used it for charter fishing, commercial crabbing, sea cucumber dive fisheries, and also a tug boat. 35' Vikings are well built and very comfortable to fish on. Captain Randy Skan is finally doing his own thing. Randy ran boats for other people a total of 6 years and now took the step towards owning his own boat, and being his own man. No one breathing down his neck telling him "That is wrong." I was the one telling him that 3 of those 6 years. Never Enough is coming to completion need about 2 weeks. Here is a picture of Captain Ross doing one of the best shakedown trips ever, 4 Ketchikan King Salmon, WHAT! Wait until Ketchikan sees Captain Tony on the Never Enough again, watch out.
Yesterday was my first cruise ship fishing charter of 2015. The trip went great with my Minnesota folks. These early May fishing trips are tricky. A captain is fully aware that the possibility of no King Salmon and resorting to rockfish is a reality. However when you "Forget the rest, and fish with the best!" Luckily our trip was a success with 2 nice King Salmon. Possibly Captain Tonys last charter on the Valhalla. The Valhalla is a beautiful boat that is currently about to be sold, wont know until the MONEY is in my hands though. I have owned the Valhalla for 3 years. I have charter fished, commercial crabbed, and commercial dove for sea cucumber off of the Valhalla. It has been an awesome, comfortable, stable boat to fish from. Also got the little glasply up and running for some of that economic bombing around in the little boat business.
