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 . . . .
WORKING, DRINKING, AND DRIVING IN GREAT FALLS - Tuesday night. It was breezy and cloudy today, but comfortable. Tomorrow I am off, and weather will determine what I do. I may try for the 4th or 5th time ...
