Camped on Homer Spit last night beside a rowdy group of fishermen who kept a smudge fire burning until 2 a.m. All of my stuff smells like campfire. Went out on a charter for pollack and caught as many as I wanted. Does anyone know how best to cook them? They are being processed while I sit here in the laundry mat/ video store/pizza parlor. Rocket loved the beach, but didn't trust the waves. I hooked a few silvers in the lagoon on Farmer's "Purple Death" fly, but I could not land them and no one had a net to help. Halibut tomorrow. The weather is a mix of clouds and sunshine, smudgy fires and Coleman lanterns at night. No wind.
