Welcome 2009

I don’t know about you, but the arrival of 2009 was a welcome event. As we in Homer are in the grips of an extended cold snap and all of us are experiencing the most uncertain financial prospects of our lives, there are many reasons to celebrate a new year. Just as the weather man assures us that the temperature will rise and the ice will melt, I believe there is just as much hope for the American economy. We at Capt. Pete’s wish you all the very best in 2009.

We were unable to go fishing this last week due to heavy ice in the harbor caused by temperatures near zero. We are hoping that with the forecast higher temps next week, we can get the folks that are waiting to go fishing out there. I thought you would enjoy these photos of the ice in the Homer harbor. Hopefully, next weeks post will feature some king salmon!
