Baked salmon with lemon-dill sauce

Lemon and dill salmon 2
One of the many perks of being being part of the sportsmen and women community is the friends you make and the food!  And I’m lucky enough to have a friend in Alaska who has sent me freshly caught halibut and salmon.  Don’t hate me!  I’m here to share a favorite recipe that can easily be applied to high quality fish you can find in the market. I hope you enjoy this simple recipe as much as we do and get inspired to start planning an Alaska trip – we need more fish!  Alaska 2016 or bust?!

Alaska Fishing + BONUS Recipes

Mom and King Salmon

Mom and King Salmon

One of my earliest memories is sitting at the front of my parent’s Zodiac boat in a tiny lawn chair, zipping along the Gulf of Alaska to find that perfect fishing hole. I was about 6 years old and I loved every minute of it. With the salty air spraying me in the face and the smell of old fish scales at the bottom of the boat, I would scan the shore for bear and moose.  I think of this memory often and smile to myself.wendy 2

When I was older, my parents admitted to me that I was actually tied to the lawn chair, and that the lawn chair was secured to the boat, and that I was only up there to weigh the bow of the boat down. Still, I had fun.

My mother is third generation Alaskan, and she taught me all I needed to know about fishing...

kateRecently we returned from an epic trip down to Louisiana where we absolutely crushed big Redfish on the fly. Frigate Travel took a group of guests and we fished with Capt.Greg Dini and his crew at Flywater Expeditions. Many fish over twenty pounds, some over thirty, and a couple pushing forty. All sight fishing and some popper fishing as well.

It was a grand time to include amazing food in the Big Easy. As the photo above showed, the girls boat (k8 and Remi) kicked some butt one day and landed this fish among many many others. Thanks to all the guides for their patience, great attitudes, and winning personalities. We will be back!

AK Bear Hunt, By Loni, the Sportsman’s Wife

LoniSomething I don’t tell many people (especially men) is that I have shot a bear.  And tanned it’s hide.  In Alaska.  
Girls usually think its weird and it intimidates most guys.  But whatevs…  If your from Alaska, its just another day at the office.  
I was digging through my Alaska pictures the other day and came across my black bear hunt pictures.  It was a memorable trip.  A time when I truly fell in love with the rawness of Alaska.  So I thought I would share it with you all.  
I think it was way back in 2005.  Yup, sounds right.  My newly Alaskan family was working and playing alongside another family, in the process of figuring out how we could make a go of living up North...
