Alright, we have our first user submitted POTD from Bob Poor, the legendary skiff man of the F/V Lake Bay. Obviously, Bob snapped this one while side towing just outside Hiddle Falls this past summer. As the story goes, the Lake Bay was one of the four original Delta seiners. Can anyone else name the others? Thanks, Bob for a sweet shot. It brings back memories of Sitka herring in 2007, when I was lucky enough to shuffle around on deck in rubber clothes.

I'm loving life in Alaska! Check out my viewpoint from Alaska, as I go commercial fishing and skiing thru the land of the midnight sun. This is Alaska commercial fishing shown the way it should be, from fishermen. When, I'm not working on the high seas, I enjoy time with my family in Juneau, AK enjoying life, love and salmon in southeast Alaska


  1. lakebay was #1 a prototype I believe. my grandfather gene gilbertsen was the very first man to run the lakebay or any delta for that matter
