Thought I'd start a little blog about my summer up here.
We arrived last Sat. to our fish camp. Discovered we had a 33 hr opener the next day. My brother in law and myself scrambled to get two more of our 5 sets set out out. The 33hr opener was a pretty good one for us. We ended up with 4500 pounds in 33 hrs. There was an announcement the next day that we'd have a three day opener. So far during this opener we've caught 5800lbs of Red Salmon and have just heard there is a 48 extension to this opener. Prices are up to 1.35 per pound so it's already looking like a decent beggining to our season.
It's bitterly cold here on the south end of Kodiak for this time of year. Lots of bears moving through our area lately as well. I've not been out fishing yet that I have not seen at least one bear.
My hands are already getting a bit arthritic so I have to end this one for now. I'll try to get some pictures up in the next couple of days or so. Going on very little sleep this week.

    Alaska Salmon fishing

    Wow, we've now caught 25,000 lbs in a week. the best I've ever seen by a long shot. Price is great as well. Our fish is being flown to seattle for the fresh market because of the copper river bust. My hands and arms are in bad shape right now tendenidious is brutal. I have crab hands right now. We close tomorrow for at least a day and a half. Our excavator finally arrived as well. Look forward to playing with that thing. I just have not had any time to take photos. I'll try to get some duriing this closure.

    Set any Crab pots yet? We should get you a wireless webcam for your roof. Article in Seattle times yesterday talking about those overpriced copper rivers.
    "Copper River king fillets (when you can find them) were selling from $25 to $35 per pound at fish counters around the region this week and sockeye fillets were priced from $18 to the high $20s per pound. All prices are several dollars more per pound than last year, when the fish were more abundant"
    Catch lots, make money (cause you need a bike from this generation), and don't let palmer watch anymore sponge bob square pants!

    Reasons to dislike Rossi.

    Rossi IS one of the "greats". Hard to say where exactly he sits on the list for me though. I think many people love to hate him because of his fans, lol.

    Much the same way many people don't like Bayliss(except a lot less dislike Bayliss himself)

    Rossi= Rick Mears
    Bayliss= Ayrton Senna

    More reason to dislike Rossi.

    In racing sometimes things happen you commit and the other guy does some little thing different he hasnt done the last 6 laps and you rub or go down. It all perspective my seccond to last crash the other guy blew the turn in by 40 ft then at the last dying dog moment turned and we were on a colision course, there was my perspective , his ,the turn workers and the chief stewards all were different, shoulda, woulda, coulda.

    I agree that rubbins racin but when Rossi got rubbed by Elias he whined like a little bitch. But when he pulled that same maneuver on Gibernau it was "legit". I hate the hypocrisy.

    You kill me, Your avatar shows a perfect example. Rubbing is not motorcycle racing. Rossi bitches like a little girl when someone gets aggresive with him. You are exactly the type of blind fan that contributes to my dislike of the guy"girl"

    My avatar pic shows aggresive riding! Your WEAK! Bad passes?? are you high? Dude wake up! A pass is a pass. If it puts you in a better position to get points, DO IT! Rubbing is racing..How come your so quick to bash Rossi? Did you even watch the race last weekend? Toseland and Lorenzo actually made contact and were riding out of control for a while there in the begining. Just hate on Rossi because hes a bad ass haha you people crack me up

    and more

    He's a dirty racer, makes bad passes all the time and never gets called on them. When someone passes him aggressively he whines like a little girl.

    No you do not have to cheer him on, and I'll tell you why. His fans which includes every kind of media coverage constitantly believe he is still the best and espouse as much given any sort of opportunity.
    Another reason to not like him is during all of his championship years he never had any great competition. It does take a good rider to do what he has done but not a great one. He has had the best equiptment since he was a kid and had built a reputation of greatness which his competition bought into. Hes a sham. Now that there are some guys that were not brought up to fear him he has retreated like a talley wacker caught out on Lake of the Woods in January.

    Hey! You can dislike Rossi all you want, but leave the Bee Gees and Def Leopard alone! Those guys rock! (Well, maybe not the Bee Gees... they don't really rock, but they do play good music )

    Reasons to dislike Rossi.

    bahaha. nice first blog post.
    I naturally root for the underdog so I am not a rossi fan. I do think he (was) very talented and he brought a lot of animation to motogp. But anytime I see someone (or some team) dominate a sport regularly my natural instinct is to root against them. Plus, he is quite the hypocritical, whiny bitch.
    The irony, tho, being that since my nature is to root for the under dog does that mean I now have to root for rossi?!?!?! zomg!!!!
