Boats + Family + Alaska = FUN!
Spring Has Sprung
Kyle has transformed a big burned up mess into a promising boat project! Check out these great progress photos.
Our "New" Boat
Nothing But Opportunities . . . This new year an opportunity arose for Small Scales Seafood to make a vessel up grade. We've been tucking away a little money every year to someday get a more comfortable boat.
Fishing has its glamorous moments- glorious sunsets, large schools of salmon hitting your net at once, months of post-fishing down time in a good year, large halibut coming over the rail, doing something you love . . .
It also has the non-glamorous moments:
The Season is Underway
We've been out for two days of fishing. The fish are starting to show up, the boat is running great with some new improvements and our new crew is great. This year JP (John Paul) returns and Jake Beaudoin joins us. (Yep, it took two strong young men to replace Emily's deckhand skills ;). Two of our favorite salmon spawning ground research tools: packrafts. On the shore of Skilak Lake, headwaters to the Kenai River.
Check out our Facebook page or click on this link to see some fun pictures from the trip we took before the season began. It was a bit of a 'research' trip because we explored two of the main glaciers that drain into the rivers where our fish spawn, the Tustumena and Skilak glaciers. Now you REALLY know where your fish come from!
We have just a handful of orders left.
Thanks to everyone for already placing your order!
