Probably not. I didn't draw a tag this year and most of the registration hunts here are a little far away. Definitely going to hunt deer and maybe moose if the weather cooperates and I can get enough time off from work.

Brined up the fish from the other day. Have them drying now. The top center tray is sprinkled with smoked ghost pepper powder and the other 2 trays without the bellies are sprinkled with course ground black pepper. This batch was done with maple sugar instead of brown sugar, going to see if you can taste the difference.

Well the verdict is in on the maple sugar. I can't really taste the maple at all. It does taste a little bit different than with brown sugar but not enough to keep using it. Oh well. This batch turned out pretty good regardless. Here are some of the peppered pieces.

I cut it off the fish after taking the fillets off. Keeps it intact for smoking.

So you butterfly the fish?
I've been doing that with kings for the last couple years, it takes a little more time, but I like getting the bellies whole, and if i'm cleaning them at the river and putting multiple fish in a garbage bag for the ride home, it keeps the slimy skin from the clean meat.

Yep the goat hunts will be starting soon. I didn't draw anything this year, will be going after deer and maybe a moose if the weather cooperates. I got the new boat a few days ago and I have been busy breaking it in and tooling around with it. We are in full eggtake mode at work right now so I've been pretty busy. Hope to get some more pictures soon.

The coho haven't really moved north yet, most of them are still out in the ocean. Blowing out of the SE right now which means crappy weather out front so no trolling for a few days. Plus I am eyeball deep in spawning chums right now.

Been a while since I rapped at ya......

Trolled this coho up today. Missed another one that slammed my hoochie but didn't get hooked up. I reeled it in slow and it followed it to the boat.

Pretty slow out there right now.

The fishing out in Unalakleet has been the best in years, Our silver limit went from 4 to 10 a day with lots of 10 to 12 pound fish.
