It begins today! We are staying at Diamond M RV Ranch again. We know a bit more what to expect this time. This is Krista's first year to dip-net. Josiah, Jamin, CoRielle and Alex are all with us. We wondered how Benny would do on the beach - just fine! LOL He's my fish bonking partner.

Willy, a friend from church, joined us this year.
The waves are so exciting.

After the fishing we spend time cleaning fish at camp. This is lots of fun and the first chance to rehash this year's fish stories.

We've made a good start in filling the little freezer with salmon.
Behind the scenes.... this is what is on under the waders...it's COLD in that water. This is actually the norm for Alaska Summer Fashion...shorts over leggings and thermal shirts. LOL
The moment I realize what a difference losing 50 lbs will make on this trip.
Sadly, looking back from the vantage point of 2022...I've gained 30 lbs of it back....but I'm learning a lot.
