Wow! Rollin’, Rollin! These guys are killin it with the big bags of salmon. I’m guessing that some of these shots are from Amalga Harbor or Kingsmill. Man, it was some big fishin last year! How are we ever going to go back to “the grind” after a summer like that?
It’s hard to imagine that its been one full year since my good friend, Arthur “Jay” Fisher, passed away. Jay was diagnosed with Spinal Meningitis, and has body just couldn’t fight the infection fast enough. Last summer, The Kona Rose, which was one of Jay’s favorite boats to work on, escorted his ashes along the inside passage for one final trip to Baranof Island. On a lucky fishing closure, we were all able to come together and remember a fellow fishermen’s passing. The video is truly inspirational and a real labor of love from a long time friend. Enjoy!

The summer of 2007 was one of the most successful Hidden Falls hatchery returns in years. Four boats; including the F/V Harvestor, the F/V Rose Lee, the F/V Island Girl, and the F/V Island Pride hauled in just under 4 millions pounds of chum salmon in less the 21 days. It was incredible to see massive sets of chum salmon flow over the rails again and again. In recent years, the hatchery has fallen short in chum production. Many fishermen speculate that the humpback whales have taken up residence and consume the newly released salmon fry to their bellies content.
