  • We all have certain memories or thoughts of times and places that provide us with an internal source of warmth and comfort wherever we may be or what circumstances we face. Mine is of Christmases past and those held within the palm of the future....

  • The days orbiting Thanksgiving are usually as quiet as a puppy’s snore in our little patch of paradise. The only sounds drifting through our cabin are some soft instrumental jazz and the tinkling of ornaments as my wife prepares to decorate for the holidays. She is a master at turning our log home...

  • I’m one of those offbeat types who enjoys the early morning hours where the eastern sky has yet to develop its personality and merely glows with a muted silver patina. It gives me time to have my first cup of fresh ground coffee before stepping out on the deck to inhale the scintillating breath of...

  • Now that we are beginning the slow tumble into the deep fall season where land hunts rule, don’t forget the stunning silvers and steelhead swaggering into some of the streams.  The attitudes of these gleaming finned missiles have a tendency to morph into ravenous pack-stalker mindsets around ...

High tides, high winds, a dash of termination dust and snagging opened at the Nick Dudiak Lagoon.  Surfers off Bishop’s Beach were riding what looked to be walled up waves while other high cresting lips spread debris along the Homer Spit Road. At the Ancho...

  • Last Monday I opened a voicemail from my compadre Turk. He was so riled up that residual smoke leaked out of the receiver. He started off suggesting that since the Kachemak Bay Coho Salmon Gillnet Fishery is now open, why shouldn’t anglers at the Nick Dudiak Fishing Lagoon be able to take a shot a...

  • I have received an unusual amount of email asking how to report angler evil-doers to the Alaska Wildlife Troopers without tying up 911.  The local number to turn in the violators is 907-235- 8239. Use it. Advise them where you are and what’s going down along with a description of the mis...

  • Let’s face it. Putting the hammer on silvers while they are cruising beneath our inlet waters or doing acerebral loops inside the infamous Nick Dudiak Fishing lagoon can be a spectacle of aerobatic fights and unruly runs.
