07/22/2019 No Travel Day - Paul’s Halibut Excursion


Start Location:
Start Time: N/A
Mileage:  54,374.5
Cost Per Night: $31.50 USD
Weather: 50 - 73  F Overcast

Paul and I both got up early today. Paul left just before 4:30 a.m. for his last fishing excursion. He is taking the Alaskan Adventure Halibut trip. Paul spotted five moose on his way to Ninilchik to meet Mike.

I opted to stay back and scrub the motor home. I also wanted to get caught up posting my journal to my OmaLovesU.com blog.

Paul got the better end of this deal. The Alaskan Adventure boat ‘limited out.’ Paul caught two big halibuts – one was nearly thirty pounds! However, it was not the big fish of the day – they brought up an eighty-pound halibut. The happy fishermen were successfully back to shore by 11:30 a.m.

Since this was our last day in Soldotna. We went to Custom Seafood Processing to add Paul’s haul to the fish we already had stored there. It was not cheap, but we had the fish fillets shipped to our friend Eric. There is just not enough room in the RV for us to bring it back.

Extremely sad to be heading out of Alaska. This state is fresh and beautiful – an outdoor wonderland.

Wildlife Spotted: Paul got to see five moose & a huge eighty-pound halibut; just camp birds for me.
