Thumbs up Pairadice and ASD Alaska Adventure 2017

This summer Crusty and ASD will post HERE from time to time so you can follow our adventures to Alaska.

Mission Statement:

KILL FISH!

We have no schedule, other than fireworks in Wrangell on the 4th and getting as far north as Juneau, where we will take the ferry to Skagway to ride the steam locomotive.

Within the next week I will post my "SPOT" web link so if AIS is not working you can find us on the Spot.

Currently Pairadice is at Oak Harbor and ASD is still on the Columbia River. I will be checking weather starting this weekend to cross the bar at the end of the month. We plan to meet Crusty in the San Juan Islands.

That's it for now. Thanks for following!

Badger might be somewhere between Douglas Channel and Hakai Pass this summer, so we might 'bump' into you

If your travels lead you to the west side of Prince of Wales island in a radius around Craig, we're bound to see you. We will also be in the fish-chasing mode. We're leaving Bellingham at the end of May, and will be passing through Wrangell and Petersburg enroute to the outside, timing indeterminate at this point.

Have a great and safe trip folks and if you really like steam trains, as I do, check this one out in the UK that they have currently been testing.

Hi everyone!

While here at Oak Harbor we are catching up on personnel business, a bit of boat maintenance and some shopping.

One item that came up before but we never seamed to get a consensus of, is a TF reunion in Alaska. SO Ill just put it out there and see if we can come up with a date and location that we all might meet up and celebrate a wee bit as people instead of someone on the ole interweb!

Now as I recall, we did have lots of interest and even a list going of people who will be up there during the summer. Ill try and find it on another thread, and post it here also.

Other than Wrangell for the forth, which may not work for everyone, and Juneau in June sometime, we are pretty much open, unless were killing the fish big time. If you have a good location that can support at least 10 boats, maybe more, please post your ideas here.

One way or another, ASD and Pairadice both look forward to meeting as many of you as possible this trip!

Cheers, John

Rogue will be heading N the middle of next month. Won't be going as far N this year. Plans are for Smith Sound, and maybe the Spitfire Group. Heading S we may head into Belize for a second time. Planning on about 3 months poking around. We will have beverages aboard and it would be fun to meet up with some of you TF travelers.

Fishing in Juneau area is not looking good. The state has shut down fishing for king salmon in the Juneau area.

We plan on being at Wrangell for the 4th, is the anchorage large enough to accommodate?

Believe we have a TF member in or near Wrangell who could answer that question. Al, where are you?

I believe so if we get there early enough. Most likely be spread out between the two marinas. If we had a number of boats we could call the harbor master ahead of time.

Nice day in the San Juan Islands.
We left The dark and dreary Oak Harbor Marina this morning for Roche Harbor. Perfect timing for Deception Pass and got a 2.5 Knot push. Was a little snotty crossing the Straits, but once inside the islands the sun came out and seas calmed down. Cocktails in 2 hrs.
Cheers everyone
