Today we left Crab Cove (Exchange Cove) and arrived at the cool town of Wrangle Alaska. The weather has been really good so far and we hear the fishing in Wrangle is really good...we'll see!

After catching our first batch of crab, I of course put the crab trap out again. We left it out overnight this time. After pulling it up today, it had another 7 crab with 5 of them being keepers. Holy moly. That's about 5 crab dinners now!

And here's Sandy staring at us while we chowed down on the crab. I think she was a bit jealous!

Today we cooked up the 7 crab we caught and were stuffed by the time we finished 3 of them!

So after we arrived at Exchange Cove, I immdiately put out our crab trap. A commercial fisherman in Ketchikan was cleaning some fish from his boat next to ours and was nice enough to give us some fish parts to use as crab bait. I let the crab trap sit about 2 hours then went to check it... The trap had 14 freakin crab in it with 7 keepers. Nice job Larry! These crab were very nice sized.

We departed Ketchikan Saturday morning and headed out to a cove where we heard rumors there was good crabbing. Along the way, we saw a ton of whales. Many were raising their tails and splashing the water. Quite an amazing sight.

Float planes are very popular here in Ketchikan. They practically have their own floating airport in town!

Couldn't resist visiting the famous Dolly's Brothel along Creek Street. I wanted to stay there all day, but "The Admiral" made me leave!
