Sitka - Day 2 report

Another day of not being able to keep count of all the whales I saw. Also got to see an ocean otter today along with a few Sitka deer. Managed to catch a halibut and a King salmon today along with a bunch more coho's. I was the only one on the boat to catch a King - we're allowed one each - so tomorrow we're hoping that everyone catches their King...

We fished with Mt. Edgecombe in the background most of the day. It's an ancient volcano that reminds us that the edge of the Pacific is quite a hot spot of volcanic and techtonic activity. If you take a look at the picture below you'll see Mt. Edgecombe and at the water's edge you'll can see the old lava tubes of the volcano.
