As the lanes divide, there is NO WAY I am going to make the corner. So do I slam into the poles and signs in the divider and risk impaling myself on a post? I don't rally care about the car at this point. I have time so I look ahead and nothing is coming, I turn the wheel slightly to the left and I take the corner in the wrong lane! I'm driving south....One life down...eight left...
I jump out holler a few times and then dial 911. The operator said they were talking to the driver who had been picked up a few minutes earlier. I did see vehicles parked at a parking pull off earlier. I hope he is alright.
As soon we get off turnagain arm, the roads are fine. Well the roads are fine but once I hit Ninilchik, a cow moose jumps in front of me. By the time I hit my brakes, the moose was behind me. 2 lives down, 7 left.
Oh yeah, this is a fishing log. Well that's simple, I started at 11:00am finished at 5;30pm and caught NOTHING...well two pollock but that doesn't count.
I had one good take down but it didn't stick the fish. I thought the consolation was that I spoke with 6 boats and only one boat had one fish. Okay, it's slow for everyone. Then I get in my car and check my email. Klondike Kid from Alaska Outdoor Journal emails me and says, I guess you didn't go today. My buddy Shane hammered two nice ones at the quart of gas hole (where I was fishing). WHAT?!?!?!?! No way! Well he had the pics to prove it. I did see a boat out there by itself after I left that area and was headed in.
So the video for today is merely a boring video of the conditions. The wide angle gopro lens does not do the wave size justice. As an example here is a pic I took with the iphone. The point being is that I consider this fairly flat. Flat enough to take my beloved iphone out of its water proof bag.
Here' the vid. Once again there isn't much to see. But i know there are folks who are intrested in the type of conditions a yak can handle. While fun, I wasn't at all concerned. This was fairly normal water when we were fishing Deep Creek area in the spring.
While I didn't get any salmon, I did manage three snowshoe hares. Unfortunately it was with my car... there sure are a lot fo them this year! Sorry bunnies.....
So today was a day to bank the hours. It just means the next fish will come that much faster. Got to keep at it! I'll be back!!!!!
