The Ocean Angel II is a massive cable seiner, so safety is the number one concern while fishing at night. My new crewmember Juan, decided to introduce a little style to his hard hard. The inspiring drawing shows the Ocean Angel II making a nice big squid set. Awesome!
Oh yeah, I can almost here the faint sound of Barry White music in the background. Check out this video to how squid get it on! The egg sack is incredible. Just imagine how many baby squid are rolling around in that egg colony.
The squid fleet has harvested 97,605 square tons of the 118,000 quota as of October 10th, 2014. Luckily, I got the chance to come down to Ventura, California and help clean up the remains of season. This is the elusive prey of the vampire fishermen, Loligo Opalescens.
Yeah, I know… another Sitka Sunset pic! They are just so damn amazing!

The Puget Sound sockeye returns were supposed to be spectacular this season. Due to abnormally warm water temperatures, most of the Frasier River sockeye never made it to U.S. waters. Eventhough, the salmon didn't pour into Point Roberts or the Salmon Banks, it was still an awesome experience to fish in such historic waters. I can't wait for the next big push of salmon that pour into Puget Sound! We will get them next time…
What an office view? The scenery is amazing in this short video. Stay tuned for massive glaciers, a salmon eating dog, and tons of Alaska style web entertainment. Check out http://www.fishfilmfest.com for upcoming details on the festival.
Delta's latest and greatest popped up in Craig, Alaska this season. Notice the older model Delta crusing away it the distance.
