Fun fishing versus tradition

The Cook Inlet Caucus, Kenai River Fishing Inc., Kenai River Sportfishing Association, Alaska Fisheries Conservation Alliance, what’s the difference? Bob Penney, Bob Penney, Bob Penney, Clark Penney. I got it! So it is sport and fun and the Kenai Classic versus culture, tradition, and heritage. When bait is used for silvers during the Kenai Classic, king salmon will be caught and killed.

One more quick point since it is an election year. Mayor Navarre recently vetoed the bed tax. The borough subsidies the Kenai Peninsula Tourism Marketing Council to the tune of $300,000 a year. As a commercial fishermen, and perhaps some others might risk agreeing with me, I say, “Gimme some of that!” Seward and Homer are always top ports for halibut and black cod deliveries. The salmon fishery, in spite of the dipnetting, employees thousands and supports many local family businesses, I’m just saying Mr. Mayor.
