Anchorage couple charged with lighting man on fire | Crime | ADN.com
those oil assistance checks cannot come quick enough
So...today I picked my buddy up at the Airport in Anchorage. He was coming back from across the bay after guiding for the month. We go through the normal routine ,"How was the fishing, and how was the money?" He tells me, I made dick, the fishing was great, and the boss was a f'in douche rocket and ripped me off bad!
The boss...Jack Johnson... A.K.A. Douche Rocket
First he tells me, he thought he would be making decent tips, plus, he would be gaining great experience, BOY was he wrong!!
So, then he tells me the owner (Jack Johnson A.K.A. Douche Rocket) took 25% of the tips from all the guides and then some. Not only did he steal tips, wine, and banana bread, but after he was done with them for the season, he short changed them and handed them a 1099 form to say they were on their own. After making them think they were working under his jack wagon guide lodge, "LEGEND LODGE", they soon realized they were working for themselves.
Let's be honest, in reality it should be called, "Fuck You, Pay JACK!".
He works his "guides" (aka Kunta Kinte's ) harder than a DREAM ACT Mexican at an Orange Grove in Florida. Yeah, it's that bad.
Needless to say, if I were going to throw down good money to a guide in Alaska, I damn sure wouldn't be giving it to Jack Johnson. I feel bad for his unknowing apprentice guides, who work for little to no pay thinking they are working for a legit guide service. Needless to say, if a guide works for this wanker for more than one season, they are messed up in the head and need more psych work than Casey Anthony.
Oh! Before I forget, you can get a KILLER deal! If you donate $100 or more to Trout Unlimited you can get a guided trip for 50% off!! If not, then you are stuck paying $4299 or more, depending on what Jack Johnson wants to charge you.
Tobias - try kingfishers in Cooper landing. Great food especially after a long day of fishing.
Quartz creek will spoil you for life. As will the whole Kenai peninsula.
7 days without fishing, makes one weak.

Nice fish, looks like your progressively finding the bigger fish, and that water color behind you is amazing. Glacial runnoff? Who says melting glaciers aren't good for something?
Next spring you need to pop the mouse pattern for those bows before the salmon run. And take some video.
Roll up the windows Brian, you're letting the stank out.
We fished mouse patterns early in the summer and hit a few rainbows. I'm going to concentrate my top water efforts next year and see what kind of fish I can scare up. I will be sure to try and get some footage of the top water action.
Well fishing has definitely slowed down and gotten tough. I only managed some dinker bows and dollies. Oh well.
My buddy managed two nice fish over 20". One was 25" and this one was 24". It was caught on a bead.
He let the first one slip back into the water while I was getting ready to take a pic.
This piggy was caught by my buddy today, on a flowing body of water that will not be named between Homer and Fairbanks, while dead drifting a flesh pattern.
It measured 28"x16"!!
I wish the fishing was as hot as this truck fire that had me sitting in traffic for an hour!
