The second opener of the Sitka Herring season was whopper!  Just over 5000 tons were harvested from the beach just outside Stargavin Bay.  Moments before the opener began, boats started to crowd the beach.  Needless to say, there were a few collisions and some tangled nets.  The fishery is poised to continue tommorrow!
