  Hi bloger friends! It's been awhile. I've been Very Busy with my little boat. I have not checked in for many reasons and a lot of them are because I'm out of range,with my camera,and thinking of you once in awhile and fishing. Not being a fast typer I'll post several pictures of where I've been this last month or more. At 10 miles per hour in my little boat I burn 1.1 gallons of gas per mile and I've traveled a few hundred miles this last month.

 

 

 

  That is good though,those poor oil companys NEED those thousands of dollars,not me.I have now found a little patch of ocean that I hope will produce a fair jag for the next 2-4 weeks when the season to legally fish sablefish is expected to end. It's all poundage,when it's caught it's over,the race is on baby. Started July 15th,my buyer likes the few I've caught searching with my mile of groundline and 800 hooks that I fish 2 times a day,up and down.

 

 

 

  No more 4 day trips,I now get to do 7 day trips because of the quality of my fish. The first 4 go to those poor oil companys. The catchs are small with the fish worth lots,get lucky with a hundred hooks with a school swimming through and I'll be a happy Fishy. 4 foot seas beat me up,5 footers and I anchor the end and go hide. 10 footers for the next 2 days but it'll be nice when I go out.

Quoting Curious2078:

Best of luck with this one, Fishy.  Best of luck indeed.

 

What an adventurous life you lead.  Never knowing from one minute to the next whether or not you're going to come home making a profit--or not.  I do not envy you, my friend.  But if you happy--that's all that counts.



Thank You Pat. My friend will be in the water fishing in 3 more weeks,of that I'm sure. Some people go to casinos to gamble, I've choosen to go to sea and place my skills on the table. The only security that I have is insecurity and I'll never change I don't believe.

Quoting Dakota35:

 

Fishy, you need to let me make you a hull out of AR400 or Endura steel.  Next time you hit something, it will be the something that breaks and not the hull.  Looks like you need to install a cow catcher like on a locomotive.  What are those boats hitting, ice?



I looked Dak, The AR400 is oil quinched. MotherEarthNews once said 50/50 used motor oil and diesel was the best way to temper metal for the do it yourselfer. Below waterline is now repaired and by tonight All damage to the fiberglass hull will be finished. Tupperware man, that's the way him and I like to go. Like my buddy says "Just don't hit granit boulders and you'll be fine" lol. I kinda thought a big snowboard thing might help.

Quoting Dakota35:

Captain Fishy..."we're gonna need a bigger boat!!!"  I've enjoyed your photos.  Get yourself one of those big fish pumper boats...I'll bet you could makes some big bucks with one of those!


Dak, Glad you like the pics. After sinking in November of 1991 and living to tell about it I've found that the 3 million dollars that it would take to buy a bigger boat like that will buy A LOT of land. LoL, somewhere that you can go back to if you survive the next sinking.

 

 

 

Once we got my buddy patched up and floating again it took a 2 inch pump to keep him floating for the 10 hour tow to town. He and his 26 year old son were unharmed and picked up within minutes of sinking by a tour ship that was nearby.

Quoting BeWell:

Fishy,

You're going to have to start finding and catching more of those sablefish. Dr. Andrew Weil was on the Doctor Oz show today and raved about how nutritious Sablefish are. Now everyone is going to be asking for them at their local fish market. Good luck with your catch..... BeWell



BeWell, this may not look like much but its the dorsel fin of a Really Big bull Orca,about 5 to 6 feet tall. If I had every hook full [800],comming up from 900 feet deep, it would be like picking grapes to a pod of Orcas.

They don't touch spiny fish, halibut often come up with a great big bite out of them, but you'll never see a sablefish because the Orcas eat every one. You have to wait until their not around to land your catch.

Quoting Curious2078:

I see them, Fishy.  Quite wonderful.  All the best luck to you for sure.  I do hope you load the boat as soon as you can.  Meaning, almost immediately.  That would give you a great break near the end of the week wherein you could relax for a day or two. 

 

Let us know.  I'm looking forward to the next round of photos.


I tryed Pat, I really tryed. My last set after 7 days was a skunk. 800 hooks and 6 hours of work for zip, not the first time,sadly,won't be the last time,lol. I did catch enough to be content. Did WAY better than my friend, he hit a rock! I met him in town within a few hours of him sinking, stripped most of the fishing gear from my boat to become a fast mover,refuled and away we went on a salvage mission. My "It's Here" blog are pics from when I fished with him last year. 3 days later we were back in town with him in tow to an emergancy lift waiting for him. Dinner and a couple of drinks and this fishy slept real good last night after 10 long days.

 

 

 

Oh look! A splash of Captain in my Baileys and coffee this cold wet rainy morning :-] sounds like a couple of naps are in order for today. I'll get my boat shipshape tommorrow____Maybe.

  Glad you enjoy them Pat. Bait,ice and fuel today. Head out tommorrow [Sunday]. First fish onboard Monday and that starts the 7 day clock to maintain the highest quality. Ofcourse,as a fisherman,we always hope to load the boat as soon as we can.

 

 

 

I'll put a few of my office pictures on for you.

  Ya never know whats comming up Dak. This is a sleeper shark,best thing to do is cut the twine by the hook. At several hunderd pounds trying to get him out of the water would really damage him and I'm not into that.

If fishing holds the same I'll be homesteading this spot 24 hours a day until the race is over.
