... the rain, it is beautiful!

We walked down the Homer Spit and I signed myself up for a half day trip tomorrow morning to fish for Halibut….They will clean it, filet it, fast freeze it, and overnite ship it to me! Nice! I hope I catch my limit!

We headed on around to the other side of the Peninsula to the coastal town of Homer and this is the 'Halibut Capital' of the state. Ron went out for a day's fishing on board the 55-foot charter boat 'Irish', run by Sean & Gerri Martin of North Country Halibut Charters (www.northcountrycharters.com) - a couple who have been running charters here since ...
