Birthday surprise fishing trip
It was Paul's birthday (orange) so Gary took several friends and men from church on a Halibut trip.
It takes a lot of weight fishing in the high tide currents of Cook Inlet, and it is a lot of work bringing that weight back up from the ocean floor to change bait.
Bringing one up now. We each got two which is the limit.
This one is about 25 or 30 pounds. It is possible to get one 300 #s.
Born 7-7-50. August 4th 2008 was our last day at the ammonia plant. It was an enjoyable job for nearly 32 years. We are running out of natural gas in Cook Inlet which was used along with air and steam to make ammonia fertilizer. The plant is being mothballed now just in case someone makes another big discovery in a few years, or maybe they will pipe some gas down from the North Slope, and then perhaps it could be started up again. If you have any good job offers let me know.
