I had to say bye to the family for a bit, and the memories of Mexico. So now I'm up in Bristol Bay, Alaska. Three months of nonstop boat work and fishing to look forward to. I've been here for 18 days and the weather has been great. No rain and lot's of sun. We usually put in about 6 months of work in in only 3 months time. The days are long so you can put in some long days. The sun sets at 11pm and doesn't get dark till around midnight. I'm not sure about sunrise. It's up before me.
We will start fishing sometime in mid June and will be working around the clock for over a month, 7 days a week. It's a cool place up here. With the amount of fish that come up these rivers every year, to the bears and foxes and to all the fishing boats that are here. There's more fishing boats here than year round residents. The Salmon are a huge resource for the community here and to those around the world in which they are being shipped to. Hopefully it's around a long time from now.
