|An observation of Cook
By Capt. Tony
As far as sea conditions go on the great Cook Inlet, she can be as flat glassy calm as any pond you have ever seen. It can last for days, at times. And those days are so beautiful and awe-inspiring that they will always be remembered. She can also be quite the opposite, and at the drop of a hat, it seems. We are allowed by her to ride her back, and take the bounty she holds. In return, her only demand is respect, and that, we must all graciously give her. She does not care about you, or me, or whether we catch any fish. Every fish that comes aboard is a gift. We take what she gives, and for that we should all be thankful. If she wants to fight, she will always win, and much of a battle it is not.
Fishing is just that. Fishing. Alaska, and Cook Inlet in general, is probably one of the best spots to fish in the world, But every day on this body of water, is completely different than the day before. One never knows what surprise mother nature might throw into the picture. You pay your money, and you take your chances. The trick…. is to get on board with a good attitude, and just plan on having fun. Take in the beauty and power of this awesome place, because who knows…. You may never get a chance to do it again.
