It's rare to find a deckload of chum salmon, but we had a number of them during the cost recovery fishery at Hidden Falls in 2007. We harvested 4 million pounds of chum salmon between four purse seiners in just a few weeks. It was awesome to make massive sets of chum salmon around Hidden Falls with no competition. These days, the hatchery is more accessible to all fishermen, which makes for some serious shoot outs at the falls. I can't wait to see the chums floppin around the falls this summer!

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
