    Tragic Event

    After an event like this, we are reviewing our policy on boats on the water with a storm approaching. Now, we call the customer on his mobile phone if he's out and warn him of an approaching storm. We may ask him to come back to the marina, we may ask him to seek shelter till it passes or just to use good judgement, depending on the severity of the system. We'll get together and talk about it in light of what has happened. I would think the Duck company has something in place, some protocol they follow when a storm is approaching. They have phones and I'd think they'd have some sort of radio to talk to each other and/or home base. If they don't, that doesn't say much for their foresight. If they do, protocol wasn't followed, by at least 2 Captains. We had resort guests on a Duck yesterday during the storm. They had launched on to Taneycomo and were headed towards the fountains at the Landing. He said he told, insisted to the Captain that they not go, turn back and the Captain said no - they were going to watch the light show. Said he'd never had an accident before so... It could have been #2 down - they were lucky. As for changing course on Table Rock, those boats are SLOW and I bet they were hit with a head wind so fast they had no time to do anything except take it head on. In the video, it looked like the quickest place to go to get out of the wind was to get behind the Belle but they didn't have time to veer one way or the other I bet. Bottom line, they took a chance on the severity of the weather and got beat.

    At first, most people are taking it easy fighting these... then after a day or two, they're horsing them in and breaking them off. Gotta find that middle ground.

    2018 Alaska Trip - Naknek River

    I spent 3 weeks at Naknek River Camp this summer, entertaining friends to some Alaska scenery and fishing.

    I tagged along with friend and guide, John McClosky, with a couple of guys from Denver.
  11. Here's the first of several videos from my trip. I have hours of footage to go through. Nothing fancy... just scenery and fishing. Big Creek is a tributary of the Naknek. It's a king salmon spawning river and thus the kings are somewhat protected. It's all catch-and-release. Kings can't be taken out of the water. I believe you can keep jacks though... a king under 20 inches.

    Job position in Alaska

    I wouldn't want to discuss $$$ on the open forum but would in a private message.
  13. My friend Jim Johnson is in need of a marine mechanic for a few months this summer/fall. He runs Evinrude E-Tec jets on the river. They're ran hard, lots of hours and the river is hard on them. He needs someone "yesterday" and his season ends the last of September, although he may not keep this person past mid September. Of course, there are some nice "perks" involved in this job, namely some incredible fishing opportunities and... just being in Alaska. If you're interested, send me a private message and I'll get you in contact with Jim.

    Looking forward to reports from @curtisce and @ozarkflyfisher It wasn't their first time to Naknek. Jeff Wenzlick showed up at NRC this last week. I didn't get to fish with him but I think he had a good fishing trip. Like I said, the weather was nasty for them unfortunately.
