Well, my fishing season is off to a terrible start. It began seining for salmon out of Valdez in Prince William Sound. I took the boat on less than 2 hours notice, and no familiarity with the boat or the skipper. In retrospect, this was a bad call. The whole operation turned out to be a complete train wreck, and the word on the dock is they have the worst reputation in Valdez. Oh well.
So as of today I have taken my pay for the 50,000 pounds of fish I killed, and am hitchhiking to Kenai to gill net in Cook Inlet. I've had my hands in this fishery before and loved it. Easily the most fun I ever fishing.
I'll be making a photo album of the fishing season on here as soon as I get the chance, hopefully in the next day or so.
More news soon....
