First a boat ride through some spectacular scenery, even in the fog and rain.
Then Amy expertly guides us through the deepest channels.Then Ernie, Chris and Amy fish for red salmon. (At eighty bucks for a fourteen day out of state license, I let Ernie have the honor and I did camera duty!)

They are caught and thrown in the pail to then be cleaned and put on ice when we got back to shore. They got twelve nice red salmon.

The next day Chris cut them in strips and soaked them in a brine.

After drying a day or so, they are put in the smoker for another day, and when finished will be canned.

Oh, we did keep some out for dinner last night, but I neglected to take a picture of this one, grilled with a sauce of molasses, soy sauce, garlic and fresh basil out of the garden. Another winning recipe!

The fishing looks great and I bet the eating was even better.

Lisa said... you think they would let Scott and me come for a visit too? I am so glad you got camera duty! Have fun.

Of course you can come for a visit! We'll have salmon for dinner!
