King Crab Starts in Southeast Alaska Today.

Once again, fishermen will get the chance to harvest King crab in southeast Alaska.  The outlook for the fishery is great.  King crab are likely to sell for over 12$ lb.  The morning weather is supposed to be starting with heavy winds and the lows may drop down into the snow zone on the first evening.  All in all, it sounds like its going to be a great short fishery.  Here is a pic from a local Juneau boat, the F/V Star of the Sea.


  1. This weather is especially crappy in Juneau today. Parts of town have lost power. One region of the opener is only 24 hours, so it might not be as great as I thought.
