Cod season closed at the end of September and all our boats that fish cod for us also fish crab as well, requiring a gear change. Ironically, crab pots and cod pots are identical except for the opening, and some pots have openings that can be configured either way (but I hear they are a pain to switch over). Our guys just switch to another set of pots entirely - this picture shows three of our boats rafted up next to the dock in preparation for unloading their cod pots last week.
This got me thinking about changes I have to make as well. My move from blue collar to white collar out here in Unalaska means I need to find time to still work out and the press of the holidays means I need to get cranking on all my projects. No big changes, just little nudges on the tiller to keep me pointed in the right direction . . . .
I'm keeping this short, I just had a nice talk with my Dad back in Maine (love you Dad) and we're going to throw a movie in the new DVD player (love you Zack). Cheers everyone . . . .
KOOSKIA AND BEYOND - Seems like a long time ago, but last Wednesday we all headed out of PALOUSE, WASHINGTON going south to Lewiston. Nice ride. Most of it still in THE PALOUSE...
