Took my visiting family out for a day on the sound, it was a perfect day, flat calm, sunny and we shrimped, fished, shot guns, saw seal, sea lions, otters and one black bear. The boys had a ball catching a few pink salmon and rockfish but the high light was shooting the 22 rifle and the 44 magnum. A good time was had by all and now they want to come back in the winter !!

hauling the shrimp gear, thats only the endline on the deck, i'm in 100 fathoms here.

a few bugs in the pot but it only fished 2 hours

teaching the girly boys to pop shrimp heads, they're city kids and were afraid to pick up the live shrimp, they'd pick them up by the antennas and when the shrimp twitched they drop them, glad we weren't messing with wolverines !!
