Winter time in the harbor can be a lonely place for fishermen.  I snapped a few shots this season as boats prepared for the Southeast Brown King Crab Fishery.  So far, the fishery has been a bit slow, but fishermen were lucky enough to have a great stretch of sunny weather.  The ex vessel price for crab is about 10 bucks a pound and the average crab is about 10 pounds, so every crab is like a hundred dollar bill.
