Leaving Deb to take a nap in the hotel room I grabbed a camera. The shopping was done, nothing to do until we loaded up baggage and groceries for a quick flight to Craig the next morning. I wondered if the Ketchikan waterfront would offer a few photos, so I grabbed the 6D with the 70-200mm f/2.8, a rain jacket, and not much else for an evening walk.“You know you are trespassing.”
The comment caught me by surprise. I was threading my way along an apparently abandoned section of docks noting a possible photo opportunity involving some harbor seals.
Turning, I was met by a fellow stepping out of an old white van that looked to have been parked in place for the entire summer.
Over the next four weeks the Nordic Quest will be stalking trophy kings in the Noyes, Lulu and Baker Island area on the west side of Prince of Wales. We have wanted to do this for a long time and will have numerous reports on our website over the next two months about how we did, where we fished (mooching, trolling, depths, tides, etc.), and places we used for anchorages.
It’s a long run from our home port in Juneau so we partnered with a friend who took the Nordic Quest from Juneau to Craig and I’ll make the reverse run. Hopefully both of us will fully punch our king salmon tags and along the way enjoy some halibut fishing and setting pots for Dungeness crabs. We’ll have stories, photos and a fresh video to post to the site.
