    This is the 5th year, hense the 5th Annual.
    5 years ago when my friend Chris and I brought the subject up to our wives they agreed that going fishing in Alaska was a once in a lifetime opportunity and we should do it. Well, it is now an annual trip and this year is the 5th annual

    We got back yesterday and the trip was great. The weather was good with flat to 3' seas so getting out fishing everyday was no problem. Fishing was slow for Kodiak and we were only able to net 500 pounds of filets (yes, that is slow for a week in Kodiak, we're so spoiled).
    One of the guys this year has been posting a blog about the trip that's worth taking a peek at.

    Here's a few images from this year:
