It’s hard to believe it’s been nearly a decade since I’ve been to Bristol Bay! In 2004, the price was a only .46 cents for big “panhandle” sockeye salmon. It was a amazing to see “walls” salmon slam into the nets, as we skipped over other gilnets in pursuit a few precious moments at the front of the pack. The season ripped by and I headed south to catch up on southeast Alaska salmon seining gig! I would enjoy the chance to get some updated photos of the fishery. I might have to make a 10 year anniversary return to the wicked waters of the Bristol Bay salmon run.
