Default Joy of fishing



Dude on the left hooked up is a State Trooper from Pennsylvania-a random addition to a midweek crew last week.

“That was the best fishing trip I’ve ever been on and I don’t think I will top that...” he comments to a family member after the trip.

For those of you who share this incredible fishery we have right here in our back yards, kudos.

For me, sharing it means more than loading the boat on one stop or landing some rare exotic.

Same trooper grabbed a rod and quietly hooked a fish on iron just to see if he could do it.

Heckuva year we are having boys.

Yup, it's a heck of a year for both tuna and salmon. I had a guy from Pennsylvania on the boat yesterday fishing for salmon. It is nice to share our fishing opportunities with other folks. Few of us realize or appreciate how special our fishing is. We are truly fortunate to have the resource.

Totally agree Dave! I've gotten 4 tuna newbs on fish the last two trips, nothing better. The whales, crabbing, bottom fish, salmon etc took up more of our days than actual tuna fishing and it was great.

I can't agree more, what a joy it is!! The last two weeks I've been on and off the ocean with great friends and loved every trip. We caught tuna, salmon, crab, lings, rockfish, long leader yellow tail, and halibut!!! I can rest in peace this winter and enjoy boat work. Maybe even another fishing trip if the bow hunting season can wait a bit. I'm also grateful for the wonderful folks at the cleaning station. I left my fillet backpack full of great gear one night (at least $200 to replace)and someone returned it to Vella thinking it was hers and she knew of my loss and returned it to me. It renews my faith in the good in people.
