Long pole king fishing
These two guest were catching king with 18ft. poles.
Interesting fight, with these long poles you can keep your lure
right in front all the time. Very effective on small rivers, they could land several

They released about 10 kings each in two days &
hooked twice as many!  

Big Silver Salmon [ Dirty old fisherman]

One of my favorite rivers in Alaska!
Big silvers fly fishing average weigh 12 to 16 lb.
My largest silver 22lb. wet fly.
I've also have caught several on dry flys.
Very interesting & challenging place to fish.
Beach, river & lake all in less than a mile.

One of my many trips. 
Check out the big hook nose on this 18+lb. buck. 
Silver bullets! 

Stripe Marlin on a fly [ Dirty old fisherman]

Its been a while sense I've fish there. 
Lots of good memories. It was very easy to hook stripe marlin
on a fly, but landing them was difficult! 
Great top water action for fly fishermen many kinds of fish.

Sometimes the whole bottom of the ocean around the boat,
would be gold & blue 1000's of Dorado. Every cast on top
water fly's you could hook one of these super fast high
flying beautiful fish!
This was average size. Sometimes up to 40lb.
Larger ones don't travel with the smaller ones. They can weigh in
                                  at 50 to 100lb. These fish grow at an incredible rate.                                    Pound per pound the hardest, fastest, jumping, fighting fish in the
Ocean!  I've caught them in many places around the world.

Rooster fish are also fun to catch.
They like to cruise the surf, sometimes the small ones like
to travel in packs of 3 to 5 fish. Big ones are loners & can weigh
over a hundred pounds. I've caught them fishing from the beach.
They are farely common from Baha Mexico to Panama.
Interesting how they come to the surface & make S turns with their
seven fins on their back sticking out of the water before they strike. 

Great day! [ Dirty old fisherman]

We released five kings that day & kept these three.
Two big bucks & one female for the ikura!
Big kings are really tasty sashimi, I like them more than
big blue fin tuna. 

Two big mama's [ Dirty old fisherman]

A couple of big mama's on the right,
med. size center & three chickens
If a halibut is over 200LB or bigger. they are most likely
females & dirty old fishermen call them.
Big Mama in Alaska!

Story & picture of Dirty Old Fisherman! [ Dirty old fisherman]

Dirty Old Fisherman
Never die they just smell that way!
Kenai King
Kings this size & bigger are rare nowadays!
Largely due to the over fishing of pollock used in making surimi!
During the catching process millions of other fish are kill & thrown over board!
These giant processing ships are not allowed to keep their by catch by law. Some are doing so illegally! 
Of course this only increases the decimation of wild stocks of fish that belongs to all of us. Many of these other fish populations are also declining pollock fishing is the largest & most wasteful fishery in the world!
MANKIND GREED working hard to make the RICH RICHER!!! 
 There are many other reasons that are also causing the decline, you could write a book
about it & add a few new pages every year!
If there is a future for our oceans, mankind need to do something soon
while its still a renewable resorce. 
Next time you eat surimi or Mac. fish burger, fake crab & other products.
Ask yourself what will my children & grand children eat in the future.
Maybe each other!
