August 5, 2012: A Day Sport Fishing and Sightseeing with Family in Juneau, Alaska...

August 5, 2012: 

A day sport fishing and sightseeing 
with family in Juneau, Alaska...

My husband and I heading out of Tee Harbor
with my 87-year-young father in law in his boat...

We decided to jig for fresh herring and got lucky,
here are the first four...

A bright and shiny live herring...

Live herring swimming in a bucket
of fresh saltwater (we ended up with about 20)...

The sun was definitely trying to burst
through the cloud layer,
although no such luck...

My first-ever halibut
I reeled in, it was a whoppin' 20 pounder...

A striking
Quillback Rockfish...

Black Oystercatchers
flying around the boat...

The F/V Spirit
hauling quite the load...

A Pigeon Guillemot
(not a duck, but an alcid - seabird related to puffins)
that breed on coasts and islands in southern Alaska...

Whale watchers
heading out...

The whale watchers should have stayed,
as we had a great view of a couple Killer Whales
right after they passed by...


Killer Whale (Orca) surfacing while feeding on herring
and I'm sure in search of MY King Salmon...




A great day out on the water with family,
time to head back to town...

On our drive to town
we luckily came upon this beautiful doe in
the Brotherhood Park wetlands...



We stopped by to view how many
Chum were heading up Lemon Creek to spawn
and they were in abundance...


Another great day in our lovely town of
Juneau, Alaska

  1. Catching the fish is always a fun even if you are single or either in group. Seems that you had a great time out there in between dozens and dozens of fishes to catch!
