It’s here….opening day! It’s derby weekend on the Nushagak and Mission Lodge hosted the party of course. Lots of prep and hard work was needed to get this event going now all we need are some Kings to head up river.
Our first fishermen have arrived and are pumped to hit the water. Down trolling, back-bouncing, back trolling, drifting….whatever it takes to get some kings. Any rod could pull in the Derby winner. The Togiak was also set up last week. Boats cleaned, motors flown out, stickers applied. The water is at a good level and we all excited for another great season on the Tog. Also, we got a pile of Halibut yesterday and a small team was assembled to fillet and prep them for our weekly dinner entrée.
