Wanna see how a fishermen lives in Bristol Bay at a Fish Camp? Look no further.
Via Youtube: Here is our yard and inside our cabin as well as us building our trail down the mud so we don’t have to walk uphill in thigh deep mud all the time. The intro took a couple takes so there is a little blooper reel at the end.
After yesterday's macro shot, I thought Imwould give you a better look at the entire picture. This is the little stretch of beach along the Sitka Totem Trail. Tons of salmon are fighting to get up the neighboring stream, but a few fish just end up as nutrients along the beach. Notice a snowless Mt. Edgecumb in the distance. The two holes on the tail correspond to the close up from yesterday.
There is no denying the strong southern influence in this throwback to commercial crabbing in the 1970’s.
Via Youtube: This film shows the many types of commercially harvested seafood in Florida. Scenes include: commercial fishermen; oystermen; crabbing; shrimping; and seine net fishing for mullet.

The last of the salmon are making their long journey home this season. I snapped this macro shot of a pink salmon tail while beach combing in Alaska. The shot was taken with an iPhone 4S and the Ollioclip attachable lens.
Purse seine videos are starting to roll in. Remember to upload your vids to http://www.fishfilmfest.com. We are just reviewing videos for the upcoming festival this January. | Via Youtube: A fun depiction of commercial salmon fishing in Kodiak, Alaska. Filmed aboard the F/V New Dawn using GoPros, iPhones, and a Nikon 3200 to capture the action. We omitted the awful weather, dangerously long work hours, Jellyfish to the face, and endless boat work for the sake of crew morale.
Here's a gorgeous pic of the F/V Ocean Spirit taken in Waterfall Bay as we anchored up after a long day of fishing on the coast.
Not all Dungeness pots make it back to the boat! California fishermen have teamed up with UC Davis and the Humbolt Fishermen's Marketing Association to retrieve derelict crab gear in the off season. So far, their efforts have produced nearly 600 rogue crab pots in the waters off of Eureka, Trinadad, and Cresent City. Tune in to see how it's done. For more info click here
