IPNC Salmon Bake

August 2, 2012

  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

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 […]

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

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 […]
