The Best Day Of Fishing Ever!

Some fishing stories are a little hard to believe, 
but this guy has pictures to prove his story… I’ve heard of salmon jumping into boats, 
but never anything quite like this… 
Tom Satre told the Sitka Gazette that he was out 
with a charter group on his 62-foot fishing vessel 
when four juvenile black-tailed deer swam directly 
toward his boat.

Once the deer reached the boat, the four began to circle 
the boat, looking directly at us. We could tell right away that
 the young bucks were distressed. 
I opened up my back gate and we 

helped the typically 
skittish and absolutely wild animals onto the boat. In all my
 years fishing, I’ve never seen anything quite like it! 
Once on board, they collapsed with exhaustion, shivering. This is a picture I 
took of the rescued bucks on the back 
of my boat, the Alaska Quest. 
We headed for Taku Harbour .

Once we reached the 
dock, the first buck that we had been pulled from the 
water hopped onto the dock, looked back as if to say
 ‘thank you’ and disappeared into the forest. 
After a bit of prodding and assistance, two more 
followed, but the smallest deer needed a little more 

help.

This is me carrying the little guy.


 My daughter, Anna, and son, Tim, helped the last buck
 to its feet. We didn’t know how long they had been in the 
icy waters, or if there had been others who did not survive. 
My daughter later told me that the experience was something 
that she would never forget, and I suspect the deer felt the same way as well!

What an amazing fish tale!

Amazing rescued dog makeover!
