The busy 2015 summer season is over!! Even though the season has been over since mid September, I have been too busy commercial fishing for sea cucumber to post anything. We have been getting our 2000 pounds of sea cucumber for the last 3 openings so that means we are still fishing. The weather has been cooperating with us so far this season. Fall weather can be pretty nasty and fighting that can be pretty tricky. Last Sunday however was a wild ride as we followed about 60 feet behind the IFA ferry Stikine to cross Clarence Strait in about 10-15 foot seas. NOT FUN! Tomorrow we will be heading northbound to Snow Pass which is North Prince of Wales. This means hunting for Sitka Blacktail and diving for cucmbers. Thankful that my fishing season doesn't end in mid September like the rest of the Ketchikan charter fishing fleet.
