Valdez Fishing Trip
Memorial Day Weekend 2004

Jaimie and I drove down to Valdez, AK to do some halibut fishing and sightseeing.  The pictures below are from the drive down the Richardson Hwy from Fairbanks (and back) and in Valdez.  Jaimie caught a small halibut, along with some sharks and other stuff that got thrown back.  She also got a black bass from someone on the boat that didn't want it.  I got a cod that had to go back.  I also got a little seasick.
