Great 70th Birthday Trip To The Kenai, Seward!

Robin Hendrickson of Chehalis, Wash., surprised his dad, Jerry, this past summer with a special 70th birthday present, a fishing trip of a lifetime to Alaska.

Says Robin’s wife, Amy, who emailed these images, “They rented a motor home in Anchorage and spent two days fishing with owner/guide Ed O’Conner of Advantage Angling on the Kenai where Jerry caught this 65-pound trophy king! Robin also caught a 38-pound king.

“They then traveled to Seward where they spent two days with owner/guide Jim Lee of Swelltime Charters fishing for halibut, lingcod and silvers. Robin came away with this 138-pound halibut! All and all, they came home with seven 50-pound boxes of fish!”
