Towed the boat up to Homer, Alaska from Washington. Having a great time getting the boat bloody and messy! Touch the picture to turn picture right side up!

That's a loooong tow.  how many tires did it take?

Pictures don't turn, but it looks like the Arima is well suited for you

If your still up there come out of the harbor and head towards Anchor Point. There is an area off Anchor Point in about 60' of water called the kelp beds. You'll have a great chance of huge halibut. We've had halibut rotate the stern of a 28' Bertram in this area. At first you'll think your stuck on bottom but then your reel will start screaming. Have fun up there!

Actually, it'll be easy to find.  The Bertram's name is Snowbird and they should be out there this weekend!

Small world. Just got a text from my dad on the Snowbird - 28' Bertram that they were following an Arima out of the Harbor in Homer. Asked if the boat name was Crazy Carol and he confirmed it was.

Glad your catching some fish......nice sunshine last week or so. I've walked by your boat a few times and hoped to catch you down there. I pulled my boat out to clean the unpainted btm and have yet to put it back in. I'm getting side tracked by all the red salmon in the bay and the kenai. Should have the boat back in friday.
I think there still some feeder kings being caught off glacier spit. good luck

Today was our 7th day in a row going out, taking advantage of the nice weather, although yesterday was just a cruise day to Halibut Cove to eat at the Saltry to celebrate my one year of retirement. Pretty crappy ride back around 4:00pm with the wind against the tide and a weird fog bank half way back.Today we did fish off the glacial spit for 3 halibut. Saw the boats trolling the area. I saw a few jumpers while we were fishing. We are having fun learning the area and trying new places. The boat is getting nice and bloody and smelly lol!
It sure is fun having our boat up here for the summer. Never thought we’d ever get to do this.

Are you guys primarily on VHF channel 69? I don’t hear a lot of radio chatter.
