Dad's first halibut

Dad and his halibut

Dad recently learned that one can get a free sport fishing license in Alaska after age 60. He wasted no time at all and went to get his on his birthday last week. He had his eye on halibut fishing - something we've never done ourselves. Mom called the Hotline (the small town radio-version of Craig's List) and found some used halibut poles.

Mom, Dad, Ryan, and I went out in the skiff today to test-out our new set-up. Dad caught a nice little halibut right away - his first ever. It made a tasty dinner. There should be many more halibut to come now that we have the poles and dad has his free license.
