Fishing Partner’s Birthday

August 4, 2012

0

Today marks the 11th year since you were born into this world, but you have been an important part of my life since before that day. I can remember relaxing with the family in between fishing tides the summer you were born. We were on the couch and you were stretching and waving to everybody […]

IPNC Salmon Bake

  All who love salmon have their own special way of preparing it. At the 25th Annual International Pinot Noir Celebration in McMinnville, OR I bore witness to yet another way that salmon can be prepared and it was a grand spectacle, befitting of the celebration. For this special evening king salmon from Neah Bay […]

Culture Shock

It is always jarring to return to the world outside of Bristol Bay after a season of commercial salmon fishing. The summer is full of intensity, but at the same time there is a sense of being away from it all. This year I will be making a further departure from Naknek, the town and […]

The Tide Is Our Clock

July 18, 2012

0

Both tides of each day move forward about a half hour every day and with them move our focus and activity. As long as we have nets in the water that need tending, the tides govern our days and the tide book is our timepiece. Nothing will make the water move slower or faster than […]

Happy Birthday Baby Boy!

Okay, you’re not a baby anymore, but you’ll always be my baby. You were born in the middle of the fishing season and your Grammy says that she had never seen the fish so thick and heavy in her nets and she has been fishing a loooong time. Someday we’ll be out in the skiff […]

Eyes on the Prize

June 27, 2012

We love our King Salmon in Bristol Bay and it shows. The Kings are the prized by-catch, of the commercial fishermen who pursue red salmon, that show up at most unexpected times when we pull our gear over the gunwales of our skiffs or through the rollers of our powerboats. I love the exultant expression […]

Good Luck and Good Fishing

June 25, 2012

We have been getting ready and waiting for our first opening. The fish have been slow to move so we have been taking our time getting our buoys and lines out in stages. My daughter has been a good helper and is eager to be more involved in our operation. It is good to have […]

Today I was able to attend an event in Naknek at Dolly’s Hall that was meant for all who participate in the Bristol Bay fishery. This year marked the 14th year that Fred Anderson has organized the “Fishermen’s Send-Off,” Blessing and Potluck for Naknek based fishermen. Many individuals, small businesses and major processors contributed safety […]

It’s that time. School is almost out and we are packing up to point ourselves to the Naknek River in Bristol Bay. The birds have already flown and the salmon are on their way. We are on our way to meet them. Mel

Mom’s Day

Happy Birthday to you! You have the glue that binds our family together and have created life-changing miracles by expecting nothing less than miracles. These expectations have been at work when we have needed them most. I wish I could be there to enjoy your special day with you, but we will celebrate soon and […]
