Lots of things going on the past couple of weeks!  

The weather has been outstanding, and we have been able to get out in the boat to do some winter fishing for Chinook salmon.  We typically fish for these by trolling right on the bottom in about 75 to 130 feet of water.  This time of year the salmon feed on needlefish, but in a month they will switch up to feeding on large herring when they come into the shallows to lay their eggs on eel grass.  

These are 9lb chinook caught February 11.

These are 2-8lb, and a 10lb caught February 17.

These are some flowers from the stems that we processed 
into stem props last week end.

Nobile Dendrobium Fortune 'H'.  This plant is over 48"
tall, and is a mutation of Fortune that we picked up in
Hawaii many years ago.  Great pastel flowers!
