Alaska's largest sockeye salmon run has a rich history. Check out this amazing footage from the Alaska Film Archives. Boy, the times have changed. I'll be focusing on Bristol Bay videos the rest of the week, so stay tuned.
Bonus Video: I've posted it on the site before, but this is a shortened clip.
The Alaskan salmon season is quickly approaching as boats prepare for the huge flood of pinks this year. The Madre Is looking good this year in Bellingham. I've always loved the name of the vessel. Loosely translated, it comes out to be the Mother Of All Destruction. At least, that's what I've heard over the years. Google translate pulls up “Sorowful Mother.” Either way it's a great name for a boat. Good luck to all the fishermen traveling north this season.

The interviews are a nice touch to the overall package and the video makes me proud to be a fishermen. Way to go, Jarvis! #eatmoresalmon
Two Words. Plunger Cam! Folks, we may have just reached the pinnacle in commercial fishing entertainment. I'm actually kinda surprised that it's taken this long to see a Plunger Cam, but I like it. Dayton Wagner delivers some really cool steady shots and some unique perspectives in this edit. Look for this video and many others in our upcoming Commercial Fishing Film Fest. Our sister site, http://www.fishfilmfest.com hosts thousands of hours of multiple fisheries. In November we will be annoucing details on the upcoming festival.
This was one of the first videos of 2014 uploaded to http://www.fishfilmfest.com this fall. Be sure to get all of your edited videos uploaded to youtube or vimeo. Once the video is uploaded, you just paste in the URL into our new ComFishFilmFest website. Also, please encourage your friends to visit the new site and vote for their favorites. We are currently working on our new logo and branding for the upcoming festival. This video is a perfect example of a clean edit with good tunes and great vision. Thanks to the guys aboard the Cora J for sharing their summer with us.
The Puget Sound sockeye returns were supposed to be spectacular this season. Due to abnormally warm water temperatures, most of the Frasier River sockeye never made it to U.S. waters. Eventhough, the salmon didn't pour into Point Roberts or the Salmon Banks, it was still an awesome experience to fish in such historic waters. I can't wait for the next big push of salmon that pour into Puget Sound! We will get them next time…
What an office view? The scenery is amazing in this short video. Stay tuned for massive glaciers, a salmon eating dog, and tons of Alaska style web entertainment. Check out http://www.fishfilmfest.com for upcoming details on the festival.
