Wanna see how a fishermen lives in Bristol Bay at a Fish Camp? Look no further.

Via Youtube: Here is our yard and inside our cabin as well as us building our trail down the mud so we don’t have to walk uphill in thigh deep mud all the time. The intro took a couple takes so there is a little blooper reel at the end.

This Coho came aboard this summer while we were fishing off of Dall Island. The fish looked heathly and had no other obvious deformities. Has anyone else seen a split tail like this before on salmon species?

Commercial Fishing Video Of The Day | Fish On | Roe On Kelp Harvest 2014


Sitka Herring is just the beginning of the herring circuit for many fishermen in Alaska.  While many boats head north to Togiak for one of Alaska’s largest herring runs, a few southeast seiners head out to harvest “roe on kelp.”  The “Roe on Kelp” fishery focuses on harvesting the herring eggs on long strands of kelp.  The herring are harvested with nets and combined with hanging kelp strands in floating pens.  Remarkably, the herring release their eggs and coat the kelp with inches of tiny eggs.  Check out this up close perspective of this unique fishery.
