Joe Scores, Brad spotted the fish and I snuck in there and stole the action, then handed Brad my camera to take pictures for proof.

Coming in on the "tractor factor" these guys are first class but it can be a little harry trying to get your boat into the trailer on the way in if the seas are kicking up.

No smile - you can tell that he was not winning the money.

What a smirk, likly because he knew he was winning the 20 dollar pot.

Roll 58 - 35
We developed a new brand for our fishing services, we decided to call it "Crappy Charters" we figure this set the expectations correctly.

Roll 58 - 36
Each evening after fishing the morning tide we ran into Homer, this is behind the people hole where Brad and Jason were trying to catch a King.

Roll 58 - 37
the best thing about Homer is the "Washboard" for 5 bucks you get a shower and for 1.50 more you get the steam room shower - you can ask Brad about this - he came out smiling.

While we were waiting for our Halibut to be processed (spoiled) we fished the Anchor River, I caught a nice 15lb range king and released it.
