August 19th 1997, This was my first Halibut fishing trip in the waters of Alaska. We ( Greg Vail, Greg Nelson, and Myself ) drove from Fairbanks to Valdez and met up with a guy from COHO Charters, little did I know at the time, that this guy would turn out to be " The Pirate of Prince William Sound, Captain Willy Nye "  The Best Charter Boat Commander in Valdez. Despite a little bad weather, we had a great day at sea. Greg Nelson caught the " BIG ONE " weighing in at 110 pounds and we limited out the boat with 40-60 pounders
