Sitka Sac Roe Herring 2008: 420 Ton Deepwater Set

This was the last opener of the season in 2008.  As we tied up to the outside of the Island Pride, we could see the boat leaning at a 35 degree angle.  It was truly one of the most amazing things I have ever seen.  We pumped fish out for hours.  Actually, tried to pump fish for hours.  We couldn’t get the pumps deep enough, then we even ripped a hole in the net with one of the pumps.  As any fisherman would know, things don’t always go smoothly.
