Romney did some fishing in SE

Posted: August 21, 2013 - 11:10pm

KETCHIKAN — Mitt Romney spent some time in Southeast Alaska fishing for trout and chatting up his fishing guide.

The Ketchikan Daily News reports the 2012 Republican presidential nominee didn’t catch any fish. But his fishing guide, Tom Skultka, says Romney had a good time and “was pretty talkative.”

Skultka says he picked up Romney, four friends and a bodyguard from a yacht outside the town of Petersburg last week.

The party first flew in a small plane over the LeConte Glacier, then to Secret Lake on Prince of Wales Island, where they fished for trout.

The weather initially was sunny, but then rain moved in, drenching everyone.

Skultka says he jokingly told Romney all politicians have to sit at the back of the plane. He says Romney smiled politely.
