Ice is hard to find in Iceland
Another thing, it's really hard to get a good night's sleep around here, I've seen the moon, but it hasn't gotten close to dark since we've been here, 24 hours of sunlight really screws with your clock.
Second night in town we were staying at a fishing lodge, although there were no fishermen there, it's a little early for the salmon run, which by law requires you to hire a fishing guide, minimum fare starts at $1500/person/day up to over $3000/person/day. Yes this does include lunch, but it turned Anna off to the idea of making this a fishing vacation.
I was talking with the lodge manager and he lit right up when he found out that I was a fishing guide. He started talking about all the other fishing opportunities they have in Iceland, trophy trout and other stuff that you can do on the cheap. I stopped him right there and told him that this was not a fishing vacation, that I was doing whatever she wanted to do.
His reply with a big smile that he could hardly retain: "No fishing? Really? Hee, hee, hee, that's too bad"
Waterfalls, glaciers, geysers, volcanoes and today horseback riding. This really is an amazing place, like Alaska on steroids, hope I don't seen any of those trophy trout in a stream.....
Stay tuned, pics that don't give this place justice to follow.

Capt. Mitch Blake report
Thursday, June 18, 2015
Capt. Chris Kimrey had a bang up day yesterday with MAXIMUM PULLEDGE . He crushed the aj's.
If you want your best shot at getting a big fish to put in your lap, well, those amberjacks are about as consistent as the giant red drum and there's not a lot of difference expect where you're catching 'em.
Whether an aj or a giant drum, now through October is when you want to go. It's happening inside and outside right now.

blue marlin on the fly
Sounds like congratulations are in order, I got the call on the SAT phone this morning that with another half day of fishing, they had raised 15 blue marlin, got 5 bites on the fly and caught at least 1 blue marlin on the fly. That's pretty cool stuff.
Complete report when Jake Jordan returns.

Tarpon still biting....
Wednesday, June 10, 2015
Costa Rica Report
Yesterday afternoon I got the call that the seas were calm and the tarpon were biting at Silver King Lodge, so I hopped on a helicopter with my friend Marc and we were tarpon fishing at 1 pm this afternoon. By 4:30 we were spent, landing 15 tarpon!!!!! Pretty much a continuous double header every time we put a bait in the water. We had 3 or 4 little 20-40 pounders but most of them were respectable fish approaching 100 pounds.....which is about as big as I want 'em.

winding down for me but the streak is a live
Hopefully this good fishing is going to continue through June and into July. That slug of cold water up at Hatteras that kept the cobia hemmed up there may also be diverting more tarpon into the Pamlico Sound than in years past when many tarpon seem to have passed us by and gone to the Chesepeake.
I hope to get out some more this season and will continue to pass along reports, but for the next couple of months, I will be traveling on some of our trips to international destinations. Keep tuned for the details of my travels and reports from the guides here in NC
