SlickMariaVic -- Birdkenstocks!!!
We went on a 4 day trip through Peril Strait and around the bays and inlets. It was just for fun, to do some sight seeing and sport fishing, catch crabs/ shrimp, etc.
The first morning, we anchored near the Nakwasina River. There were half a dozen brown bear that bolted when we went ashore to fish. It was impossible to get a photo of Ipo with them because they just looked like brown dots in the background
We caught a few Dungeness crabs that were dinner that night -
The shrimp pots were really hit or miss. One came up with a bunch of young Tanner Crabs that were immediately released-
But we did catch shrimp in the other pots-
We saw lots of deer. The deer up here, called Sitka Deer, are TINY compared to what they have in the lower 48 though. These ones posed as we went ashore in Poison Cove
The Eva River, great Dolly Varden fishing
Coming home, there's Sitka! And one of the small cruise ships, I think it was the Seven Seas Navigator
When we got back from the fun trip we had a days rest then back out trolling. We'd start at first light, 3am, so here is Ipo taking in the actual sunrise just after 4 am.
