Dale and 180 pound halibut

Dale and 180 pound halibut

On Thursday, South Dakota resident, Dale Jacobson, enjoyed his first time to Seldovia, and his first time halibut fishing!   Fishing with their family on board the Peggy -n- Me with Seldovia Fishing Adventures, Dale brought in a beautiful halibut.  The last fish of the day, weighed in at 180 pounds!  He exclaimed enthusiastically: “This was the biggest fish I’ve ever caught, and I am sure this is the biggest one I ever will!”

Dale’s brother-in-law, Paul Herman, also from South Dakota, had a lucky fishing day as well since he came in with a 115 pound halibut! “We had a really really good day!  Though the weather was a bit rough going out, it evened out and was a truly a fantastic day!”  This was Paul’s second time fishing with Seldovia Fishing Adventures.   “This has been a fabulous vacation, we’ve enjoyed it immensely.  It has been a great family trip, with my wife, parents and my sister and brother-in-law.  We will certainly let folks know about the great fishing in Seldovia!”

In speaking with Raewyn Weyer of Seldovia Fishing Adventures, she let me know that this 180 pound fish was their biggest fish caught this summer!  Congratulations gentlemen!  Obviously, your freezers will be well stocked for winter with more than Alaska memories!  Hope Raewyn sent you home with some great recipes!

This afternoon, around 4pm as Hopkins Brother’s Construction was digging a trench to connect the water and sewer lines for a new home construction on Winifred, the bucket grabbed ahold of the ACS line and shredded a good portion of Seldovia’s connection to the outside world!

Lucky me, I am still on line.  Though a certain many others are still functioning, an unknown number of internet and phone lines are down, until possibly 4pm tomorrow.  Thankfully Dominic with Alaska Communications is already in Seldovia and will be getting an early start on the project in the morning – along with another technician who arrives tomorrow.

As you can see by this photo, taken by Tim Dillon, the line is buddied up with the main power line – so, this situation could have been a whole lot worse!  Thankfully, no one was hurt!  So, consider this a mini vacation, at least from technology for a few hours!

Thankfully cell service is still working – but obviously not wifi in homes that are affected.  I’m on line here on Main Street – so if someone needs a connection urgently – please don’t be afraid to stop by – I’m happy to help if I can!
