August 11, 2012: Day 2 of the 3-Day Golden North Salmon Derby in Juneau, Alaska...

August 11, 2012:

Day 2 of the 3-day 
Golden North Salmon Derby 
in Juneau, Alaska...

The fishing gear is in the water,
now it's time to sit back and have a cup of coffee
and hopefully the fish will bite...

No fish biting here
so we're off and running...


The fast ferry
"M/V Fairweather"...

As usual,
no shortage of whale watchers...

A uniquely
beautiful boat...


Brother law Alan and his wife Nadine
fishing next to us for a time...


A kayaker dropped his partner off
to sport fish from the point of Aaron Island...


One impressive boat
named "Persistence"...




It's a derby
out there...

Stunning cloud formations
off of Point Retreat...

Yay!  I just reeled in
my whoppin' unofficial 14.24 pound King Salmon
(according to our digital scale) ~
Time to run it in to see if it's a placer in the derby...

We ran past this commercial boat
appropriately named "Fog"...

Cruising around the point of Shelter Island
we came upon this sport fisherman...


While entering Amalga Harbor to drop off my King Salmon,
we came upon these people sport fishing for trout
at the mouth of Peterson Creek...

A couple of kayakers
were also entering Amalga Harbor...


We're idling the boat while
waiting in line to tie up to
deliver my fish to derby officials...

Well, my very nice King Salmon
officially weighed 14.2 lbs.,
so my father in law's digital scale is right on ;)

We're exiting Amalga Harbor
and heading to Tee Harbor to call it a day...

What a treat, a very huge whale
decided to swim alongside
our boat for a time...



The boat is tied up, and on the walk
back to the vehicle we spotted many baby herring
in shallow water along the shoreline
of Tee Harbor (that's a good sign)...

The elderly Tee Harbor collie mascot
resting on the shoreline ~

What a great day it has been...
