Been a busy few days with the Bishop group. These guys have fished with me for 9 years now, and already booked dates for 2016. It is a very good idea to book as far in advance as possible, to reserve dates that are peak fishing times. We had a great time catching Ling cod, Halibut, rockfish, and salmon. Salmon fishing hasn't been great due to the phytoplankton bloom. We are still catching salmon, though it could be better. Another group shows up today from San Diego fishing club and are fishing the next five days. Had a deckhand for the last few days and was very nice having a fishing girl on the boat with us. We have Brittany as our deckhand the next five days and we plan on catching limits of all fish, wahoo!
That is my cessa 172 stripped down and getting ready for paint. Many smaller pieces have been painted already and we are moving forward on this project. Anyone who has fished with Captain Tony at Aurora Sportfishing has heard me talk about everyone of those planes that fly overhead. Meanwhile we are trying to convince a king salmon that our bait is the best bait. Or I hooked you up with one of my friends who is a pilot so you can check out the misty fjords. Well 2015 this little bird will fly. Fly-out halibut fishing will be the new thing!
