Halibut Fishing

 

Early fishing day today.  Doug took his boat out today to go halibut fishing by anchoring in his favorite spot and hoping that the bait smell would bring the fish in.

It sure seemed to work: we actually got two good size fish onboard and had many more bites that just did not stay on the hook.  It was a fun day, but rather cool and cloudy most of the time we were out.  The sun made its appearance just as we were upping the anchor to return to shore.

Alexa’s dance recital was in the afternoon and we made it in in time for Doug to clean and freeze the catch and still get to the recital in time.   The recital lasted about two hours and was quite enjoyable and Alexa did a wonderful job of dancing with her ballet and jazz groups.
