Sunshine, Halibut, Octopus, and Birds, Oh My!

I fished with Gary and Debbie Cannon today in the kelp beds off Anchor Point. Let’s see, the sun was shining, it was likely the warmest day of the year so far, and we were fishing with light weights in 24 feet of water. With alot of coaxing, we caught six nice halibut up to 65# and one large octopus. The Cannons took home a tote full of beautiful fillets and allowed their captain to retain the octopus, which will be made into poke this summer. Fishing in Homer, Alaska is always a new experience. I am including a couple of photos of our feathered friends that frequent our view in front of the house here on Kachemak Bay.
