December 29, 2012: A Day Winter Sport Fishing Aboard the F/V Chelsey in Juneau, Alaska...


December 29, 2012: 

My husband and I spent a mostly snowy 
although wonderful winter day 
sport fishing and sightseeing 
aboard our 43' F/V Chelsey 
in Juneau, Alaska...

Captain Max shoveling several inches of snow
that had fallen during the night
before getting underway at about 7:00 a.m
Alaska Standard Time (AST)...
Me in the warm wheelhouse
preparing hot coffee to enjoy during our journey
to the fishing grounds...
Heading out of Harris Harbor
and under the Juneau-Douglas Bridge
in Gastineau Channel...
South Douglas...

Captain Max looking for a
a good fishing spot 

while enjoy hot cup of coffee...





Captain Max says,
"Time to get the gear out!"...





A south-facing view from the fly bridge
aboard the F/V Chelsey
of Gastineau Channel...
No fish biting yet,
might as well 

wash down the deck...


DuPont Dock...


A sea duck swimming alongside 
as they tend to like to do...

Deer hunters...
Well, all we were lucky enough
to catch today were four cod, 

here's a rather large one
we threw back...
A series of photographs of a regal bald eagle 
that spotted the cod
and circled around it a couple of times
trying to grasp it in its talons,
but to no avail as it turns out the cod was too large
for the eagle to carry away... 



















The seagulls tend wait 
until the very last minute
defying this big boat approaching 

before taking flight...



Captain Max
watching the fishing rods
while wishing that a nice 

winter king salmon would bite...


No luck catching any winter king salmon today,
time to pull up the gear...

One last photograph 
along the Downtown Juneau waterfront
before we called it a day

we're hoping for better luck fishing during out next outing
although we definitely 

had a terrific time this go around...
