Our trip and in SE Alaska is going well. We started in Haines and paddled to Gustavus. Had to take a detour to Juneau to replace a broken fishing rod, but we still have eaten well. The first Salmon have arrived, but we haven’t caught any. Looking forward to them arriving in large numbers. We have primarily subsisted on Dolly Varden, Halibut, Cod, and a mixture of beach greens. Berries has also started to ripen with strawberries being our favorite. Crabs has been hard to catch but delicious when we succeed.
We are leaving for our summer of subsistence sea kayaking in SE Alaska, until September (is the plan). Will start paddling in Haines, and paddle in the direction that seems to have the best catching and harvesting. Our fishing gear, shrimp pots, crab snares, etc. are ready to provide the catch as we collect edible berries, plants and mushrooms. A well stocked spice kit will help us prepare some delicious meals (we hope). A few pictures from last summers trip below. I will try to update this page if we stop in a small town.
