Not much time to write tonight. But I am working with a fisherman client and he suggested that I join him for chum salmon season to see how the business works firsthand. Forty-eight hours aboard a 38-foot fishing boat in the San Juan Islands in early October? Of course I would go.
Thankfully not quite the Deadliest Catch, but it should still be a tremendous opportunity and exciting time. Probably little sleep, as some of the days can be eighteen-plus hours long. But it is only two full days. And I frequently pull those anyway, although not on a rolling fishing boat.
I am sure more pictures will follow if this comes to fruition. And I will gain enough knowledge for me to B/S like an expert on the Pacific salmon industry upon my return.
