Curious 3 of 3

Seine Fishing

Even the mammals (including me) that are in my boat are curious. This occurred on one of the native “food fish” days. This commercial seiner had let out its net and was retrieving it when we pulled along side to watch. They use a large scoop net on a hoist that they lower into the water to bail the salmon from the larger seine net. This was ok for a food fish in that they got 7 or 8 scoops which is close to three hundred salmon but would have been poor if they were commercial or “money” fishing.
