We pulled the hook about 7:30 this morning and once outside Bryon Bay, headed northwesterly towards Sitka. By 10AM we were trolling along the north side of Whale Bay. After 90 minutes there was no excitement so we headed NW again timing our departure to match the higher tides at Second and First Narrows, along the preferred route to Sitka.

Gerard was still jacked up about landing the halibut while anchored in Bryon Bay. Here's some video of yesterday's halibut processing.
We arrived in Sitka late on a bright, clear and calm afternoon. The town sparkled.
