Yeah, I know… another Sitka Sunset pic! They are just so damn amazing!
One of Alaska’s most popular fisheries starts May 15th at 7:00 AM. Fishermen will be up at dawn looking for jumping salmon and anticipating deckloads of early season sockeye salmon. This video delivers a stunning perspective of the natural beauty Cordova, Alaska and its local bounty.
Nordic Heritage Center recently uploaded this hidden treasure, which showcases the early origins and history of king crab fishing in Alaska. This is a great perspective to get everyone in the Deadliest Catch spirit!
The Sitka Sac Roe Herring officially started yesterday at 1:45. Numerous boats tested their nets one last time in the early morning, before the fishery got underway. Fishermen are extremely determined to harvest the entire quota after last season’s lackluster harvest. The fish seem to be spawning fast and early, it should be interesting to see how the harvest develops this season. Price is pretty much at its lowest ever, fishermen are receiving 150 up front and will hope for a better price as the fish goes to market.
Wow! Amazing stock footage from National Geographic. I believe this is from the 2008 season. They fly right over where the million dollar set was caught.
