Small Scales Life
We are so filled with gratitude for the richness of this last summer. Not only were we in Bristol Bay, AK for the largest recorded salmon return in history with our brand-new boat the F/V Maggie B., but it was also the first season our children, Maggie (5.5) and Ben (3.5), came aboard as deckhands for the very end of the season. Here is a photo and video collection of our high points.
Halibut Fishing, A Family Affair
For our 2018 Halibut Season the sunshine, tides and kids temperament lined up for a great family fishing day.
Boats + Family + Alaska = FUN!
It's a dream come true to have our new boat finished and to actually have time to enjoy her!
Spring Has Sprung
Our winter in Homer, AK has been both fun and productive. The systems on our new boat, the F/V Maggie B. are taking shape and we should be on schedule for a mid-April boat launch.
Kyle has transformed a big burned up mess into a promising boat project! Check out these great progress photos.
Being a fishing family has its challenges- time apart, big risky business investments, so many variables out of our control. Our motto is work our butts off and hope for just one more great season at a time!
Yummy Halibut, Salmon Coming
The 2017 halibut season was expedient and fishy- everything a fisherman can ask for. In the 10 years that Kyle has been skiff fishing this is by far the best fishing he has seen.
June = Fish
June means fishing for the Lints Family.
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.
Kyle and our deckhand, Jake, just filled up our skiff with a lovely load of Pacific Halibut. They laid gear on Sunday night and picked the line Monday to find these beautiful fish.
