2000 All Zete Alaska Fishing Tournament!
Defending Champion Jim Prendergast returns to Alaska.  
Sweet Pea worried about losing his title brings along
Scottie Bartlett as his only challenger!
The Winner of the 2000 tournament is....SCOTTIE!  With two beautiful chrome Kings one going 40 and the other 45
pounds!  Jimmie not to be outdone put up a nice battle with a 40plus pound king himself and bonus for species points.
I still think I won the tournament with my catch but the guys insisted that my catch didn't qualify since it wasn't a salmon.  
Hmmmm...I still think I did better!  
Jim was the undisputed leader for the sockeye (red) salmon teaching all the locals just how its done up here!
Take a look at these nice fish!

Backtrolling Spin & Glo and eggs.  
A perfect net job by Rudy! Of
course!  Actually it is the hardest
time of the fight and Scottie
handled everything perfectly.  
That's why I was so amazed that
Scottie and Jim could read the
water and handle the boat to land
two awesome Kings on their own
the very next day!!
