    Rick and Cousin Barry

    Oddly and happily the guy that ran the next fishing site that was about 2 miles from us needed a guy and ended up hiring my cousin Barry! I was surprised one day to see cousin Barry coming up the bay in a skiff!! We had some great times during the closures! He is in the bow of the skiff.

    Coming out of the Shelikoff Strait

    Once you leave the confines of Uganik Bay you enter the Shelikof strait. Here the weather conditions and the sea are very different than in the protected bay. At this time of year you can encounter seas up to 40 feet!! You don't want to stuck out in that in a skiff! It WILL be your last boat ride.

    East Arm of Uganik Bay

    East Arm

    If you're lucky to be out in Uganik with access to a skiff there are lot's of great views to be had. This is on one of our rides into the East Arm of Uganik Bay. Helmet Mountain at 3800 feet is one of the tallest in Kodiak and is off to the left. This area is also a great area for spotting the Kodiak Brown Bear but oddly enough the 2 months that I spent in Uganik I never actually saw a Bear!!

    Uganik Island from East Point

    Uganik Island

    My fish site was actually across the Uganik Passage at East Point and I could see Uganik Island. Vt does'nt have a destination for the Bay so I've built this page under the Uganik Island heading. But I did have some friends that had fish sites on Uganik Island that we would visit during a 2-3 fishing closure.
    This whole area is actually off the Beaten Path! The only people that would come here are commercial fisherman and a few Deer or Bear hunters.
