July 4, 2006

Anchored in Takanis Bay last night, where the mosquitoes and noseeums were having a convention. We had no bug dope, mosquito coils or Buhach, so it was a sweaty sleep with the sleeping bag pulled tight with just an airhole to breathe.

Moved to Cape Cross today. Fish are much larger and pretty good numbers. Overcast and light winds.

Really enjoying fishing with crew. On my own boat, I was mechanic, gear tyer, gear hauler, fish cleaner, fish icer, and chief cook and dishwasher. Now, I’m just the fish cleaner and do the dishes (hope my wife doesn’t find out I know how to do the dishes….).
We caught about as many kings today as my best day ever with my own boat, and I was almost bored.

63 K, 60 C.
