Default A Rare Fish

Facebook took me to a KEZI piece that seems rather forced and awkward. The timing of has me wandering. I cannot tell if its free advertising for the Fish Market, making a case for gill nets or ...???


What ever it is I feel like it is sending mixed messages, none of which I like.
Maybe a sign of things to come

About a hundred and fifty reported out of the SAFE Zones so far. Very possible.

Yes, they're out there in the marketplace.
I was offered one for dinner at Baked Alaska in Astoria three weeks ago.

I'm wondering why you don't think this is a good thing? It's certainly nothing new.

Show your significant other how much it costs and why it's so important for you to go fishing!

The only thing ironic about that story is the McKenzie and upper Willamette Rivers are where these rare salmon come from.

It would be nice if the fish mongers would help us in our fight with the Army Corps of Engineers to keep funding the hatchery programs that make these "rare salmon" possible. And swimming right past Eugene

My neighbor in Astoria jumped me yesterday and said she saw it for $40 a lb. in some store. Told her I'll catch my own and figuring in the cost of the boat, fuel and all the other BS, it comes to $906.14 per lb....... Tell me, which is a better deal.

I calculated the cost of a springer weekend a few years back in terms of meat yield.

Came out to about $60 a pound for an 11-12 pound springer that yielded 8 pounds of meat.

So $32.99 ain't half bad.

Doing their part for Non Fishing Public.
John Q is getting similar service from them as we are.

Don't take your eyes off the prize folks!

As long as Our current Rogue Commissioners have a seat, nothing is safe. Our Governor put them there and allowed things to get this far with no push back. I have zero reason to trust her judgement.

Do NOT take your foot off the throttle. Continue to fight until this issue is dead. If you let pressure slip, even for a minute, they will try and weasel thru.

That must be the fish Grandma wouldn't be able to eat if it were not for gill nets, right?
