Salmon Seining from Joshua Jarvis on Vimeo.
Dude! This video just nails it in everywhere! It's great to see familiar faces and boats among those amazing backdrops of southeast Alaska. This is exactly what the www.fishfilmfest.com is all about! 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.
Here are some highlights from the beginning of the salmon season this year in Hidden Falls.
This season is off to a fairly slow start. Pinks Salmon are beginning to show, and ADFG has opened new areas this coming Sunday. The lack of serious volumes of chum salmon have stalled most fishermen. Amagla Harbor, which was open yesterday, failed to impress captains and crews with a Super Bowl of Salmon Seining. The boat average was a meager 8000 pounds. Come on pink salmon.
Captains and crews are racing towards another salmon season in Alaska. In just a matter of weeks, salmon will be pouring over the rails of seiners throughout southeast Alaska.
Southeast Alaskan Trollers recently hauled in record breaking numbers this past April. Ride along with the F/V Northstar and get a first hand look at trolling this past April.
Here is a peak of the F/V St. John in Port Townsend from last spring.
