  12. orik asked: What sorta boat do you fish on? Trawler?

    I’ve done a number of fisheries in Alaska- including trawling for pollock. This year I just finished longlining for halibut and blackcod- I’ll be tendering for salmon on the Copper River in May and June, then seining in Prince William Sound for pink salmon.

  13. fullybaked-fisherman asked: So I live in fl and I am a greenie commercial fisher. Have any advice?

    Funny you should ask.  I wrote up a Greenhorn’s guide last year and was thinking of writing another this year.

    To sum it up in a couple points:

    • Think ahead.  Most of fishing is repetitive and common sense goes a long way.  Anticipate what happens next and be assertive, while being safe.
    • Know your knots and how to be safe on deck.
    • Work like you might lose your job.  Be the first on deck and the last one off. 
    • Don’t be a dick.  Most fishing boats are cramped quarters and the crew that can live well with others is valuable.

    And I’ll try and get something else written up soon.
