History of Jimmie Jack Fishing at 7.5 Horsepower
A Long History of Fishing the Kenai River by Jimmie Jack
Our family came to Alaska on vacation in 1982. Life could not have been better for me at 13 years old. We spent 2 months tent camping out of our van, and fishing Alaska in our 13 foot aluminum boat. This was the kind of trip that every boy would love. During our trip, we fished everywhere we possibly could. I had a travel journal, and I remember documenting every fish I caught, and every animal I saw on the trip. Life was good setting up camp, putting the boat and the fishing gear together at each campsite, and then fishing into the midnight sun.
