Geoff Stevens visits the show from the Waterfall Resort in Alaska. It’s located on an island off the west coast of Canada, almost to Washington state. The nearest town—Ketchikan in Southeast Alaska—is only a 90 minute flight from Seattle. The islands have a warm current, which brings nutrients that attract salmon, halibut, swordfish, and more.
