Episode Notes

In this podcast Garrett talks about his recent honeymoon trip with his now wife, Samantha. This trip was to the Kenai peninsula of Alaska. The trip was certainly fishing focused with some free days for hiking and other activities. The three main species of fish pursued were Sockeye salmon (reds), Chinook Salmon (kings) and Halibut.

Garrett explains the differences in the three types of trips and which are most feasible from a DIY perspective. In addition, Bobby and Garrett discuss the main differences between what you could expect from hiring a guide for any of those species of fish versus what you could expect on a DIY trip. Bringing home fresh fish is a huge component of this type of trip, so Garrett also discussed the procedure for getting fish from the river back home in a reliable and inexpensive manner.
