May 6, 2013: Lucky Day Netting A Dungeness Crab in the Shallows...

May 6, 2013:

My husband and I went fishing in our skiff for king salmon, 
although we ended up netting a 
dungeness crab instead in Juneau, Alaska...

We spotted this dungeness crab crawling along the shallows of the harbor
shortly after launching the skiff...

After two attempts with it crawling like crazy and the wind catching the boat
 - we successfully netted it...

I told my husband,  "The crab is crawling under the floorboard, 
you better grab it." He said, "Don't worry, it has nowhere to go; 
I don't want to get pinched"...

Common Merganser...



Super rainy day,
with the sun trying to appear...

Harlequins...






Another Marbled Murrelet; 
calling its mate that's fishing nearby...

Clever...

Pigeon Guillemot...

Max spotted salmon fry near the shoreline,
and shortly thereafter so did this bald eagle...





He was lucky and took flight 
while grabbing a salmon fry in its talons...

Promise of spring, albeit late, is the sprouting of skunk cabbage
(and its unique odor) everywhere...



And, the story continues...I hated to tell Max, "Told ya so!"
We ended up having to use a camera to locate this bugger 
under the floorboard of the skiff, 
then a coat hanger to fish it out once we arrive back home...

The fresh dungeness crab made for a mighty fine
recipe creation that I so enjoyed preparing, consisting of a tasty
