Having a Halibut time with the Iditarod

While you in the midwest are enjoying your so-called spring weather, here in Anchorage we are still knee deep in the white stuff.

However, there are signs of "not winter" like ADN's coverage of the opening of halibut season: "Today at noon thousands of baited hooks will descend hundreds of feet into the dark depths of Alaska's frigid waters and shortly thereafter untold numbers of halibut will make the mistake of a lifetime.

And we will eat them for it."

We also have the Iditarod! Are you watching? If not, you won't know that some of the big favorites have suprisingly scratched, and my favorite Martin Buser is in the LEAD!


Anyways, look for a Monday/Sunday finish to the race, it will be a very fast sprint to the finish I think!
