May 28 and 29, 2011: Days 7 and 8: Our Spring King Salmon Derby Days in Juneau, Alaska...

May 28 and 29, 2011:


Our seventh and eighth days fishing the Spring King Salmon Derby the month of May in Juneau, Alaska aboard our F/V Chelsey in the southern waters of Juneau, Alaska during overcast days...

A Bald Eagle after a small cod fish that was tossed in the water...

Alaska State Troopers checking fishing licenses, which we held up, and then they were on their way to the next boat...


A Bald Eagle on the point...


A barge wreckage on the shore where we tided up the F/V Chelsey for the night, and just after anchoring her we saw a black bear on the beach, although it was too far away to photograph...


We were up at 3:30 a.m., and Captain Max is starting the engines getting ready to pull anchor to start our second day fishing...

A Bald Eagle is up early hoping to catch a fish too...


Brother Steve letting us know he's on the fishing grounds today...


Geese flying over head...





We didn't have any luck catching King Salmon these two days ~ the fish just were not biting...we caught our fair share of small cod though...

Lil' Miss Chelsey our 3-yr.-old maltepoo is right at home aboard the boat in her life vest...her tiny feet are all wet, but she's lovin' every minute of it...


Yep, these small cod were abundant during these two derby days of fishing...




A couple of young Bald Eagles...

Two whales feeding on herring...




A rock cave along the shoreline...

Miss Chelsey helping Captain Max ~ she's checking to make sure I'm close by, while Max is checking the fishing poles for any action...

Numerous sea ducks called Scoters feeding on herring...

A separate whale feeding on herring inside the cove...

Max saying, "Something nibbled on my herring"...time for me to grab the wheel so he can change bait...

No fish here...time to head to a different location...

Scoters taking flight as we cruise by...

A single Scoter taking flight...

We came upon another whale feeding on herring...

  1. I have the best time out in any weather at anytime on the F/V Chelsey with my husband and our lil' Miss Chelsey ~ even if no fish were caught we had good meals and a great time watching the wildlife and enjoying each other's company!
