May 7, 2011: DAY 1: Our 2011 Spring King Salmon Derby Days in Juneau, Alaska...

May 7, 2011:

Our first day fishing the Spring King Salmon Derby 
the month of May in Juneau, Alaska from our skiff...

A nice deer we happened upon 
while driving out the road...

What a beautiful day to be out on the water...








Impatiently waiting for that elusive
King Salmon to bite the hook...






A single Marbled Murrelet...



I caught the first King Salmon of the day (about 17 lbs.)...



Max caught the next King Salmon (over 40 lbs. in the round)...




A Land Otter (or sometimes called River Otter) 
keeping an eye on us...

This Marbled Murrelet just surfaced 
after feeding on herring...






A Scoter riding the surf swell...

Max holding up the 1st Place King Salmon
(he held the lead until 5-30-11)...
  
The King Salmon per regulations 
are required to be dressed before weighing them in...






Max weighing in his King Salmon at Jerry's Meats...
 
It was one huge King Salmon...



Compared to mine ;)



This shows what a difference a few pounds make 
between our two king salmon...

Max was one happy fisherman...

Our King Salmon on ice
(Max's fish barely fits in this large cooler ;)...


Our lil' Miss Chelsey was happy to finally have 
us home from our long day of fishing...

  1. This was one heck of a day fishing, and in the great company of my husband. It was a bonus that we were both able to catch King Salmon - even though his was quite a bit larger than mine ;)
