  1. Last week
  2. Hey, if you're on this forum, you're National Fisherman members and so you've got access to this great new e-book put out by the NF editorial team. Highly recommended. It's got a look at what's coming down the pipe in terms of gear, regulations, and the marketplace, over the course of nearly 50 pages. Grab it here.
  3. A bit off topic, but it will be interesting to see how new ice-breaking technology affects the maritime industry in general. And, well, a "nuclear icebreaker" does sound sort of cool. Will this year-round navigation open up new fishing waters as well?
  4. Earlier
  5. If you can make it to 105, you're doing something great. I love that Essie Lindeman, of Grants Pass, Oregon, was fishing in Alaska with her husband in 1936! And I thought the commute for rural Mainers to the pregnancy ward was a long one.
  6. Here's information for Massachusetts fishermen on how to access funds from the Covid relief program set up and funded by the federal government: If you're in another state, a quick google search should uncover similar plans from your state regulatory agency.
  7. This is my favorite post in the Forum so far!
  8. Crazy to see it laid out so plainly like that. Ho-hum, "Missile operations."
  9. Just had USCG Cutter Alex Haley board us today. Aside from normal safety inspections, they did interview me about the incident. They will be in the area until September 4th when the "Missile Ops" are set to be over. Good to see them up here.
  10. This notice about the missile shoot was published in the HYDROPAC notice to mariners. Maritime Safety Information HYDROPAC 2431/20(16,96). BERING SEA. RUSSIA. DNC 25, DNC 27. 1. MISSILE OPERATIONS 2100Z TO 0800Z DAILY 24 AUG THRU 04 SEP IN AREA BOUND BY 58-55-06N 178-22-30E, 59-25-06N 177-59-54E, 63-07-24N 179-22-12W, 64-27-30N 178-30-00E, 64-38-00N 178-18-00E, 64-40-54N 178-55-42E, 64-42-06N 179-11-00E, 66-00-00N 179-07-36W, 66-06-42N 178-32-30W, 64-15-48N 173-51-18W, 64-12-30N 173-20-06W, 64-30-48N 172-14-30W, 64-24-30N 172-04-24W, 64-18-00N 172-06-12W, 63-37-30N 173-16-00W, 61-48-00N 172-21-00W, 59-48-12N 177-45-48W. 2.

  11. Wow. This is crazy. Just found a story about this. Can't believe this isn't a bigger story!
  12. Huh. Never thought much about Detroit's commercial fishing operations, but the Detroit News has a cool historical feature this week. Nice fish!
  13. Not a good site to see when your in your own waters!
  14. Those good looking Xtra Tuffs would look pretty sweet walking around this good looking boat! #GlobalSeas #Defender #Bering Sea #WildAlaskaPollock
  15. Russian Navy showing off their muscles in US waters in the Bering Sea. I've had one of their planes buzz me 8 times telling me to change course and go to max speed while hauling my gear. Repeatedly telling me "danger area" and "missiles" over VHF 16. Thats the most I could understand with the broken English. Left my gear behind, called the USCG Sector Anchorage and they said to just comply??? They had no clue as to what was happening. Turned back around and continued to haul an hour later. Since when can the Russians fly into US airspace and tell American fishing vessels to leave and where is our backup and support?? Apparently, they're playing "war games" with 50 ships, 40 planes and some amount of submarines, firing live missiles at practice targets in the Bering Sea. Submarine has been spotted surfacing within 3 miles of St.Matthews. Anyone have any thoughts on this? https://www.alaskapublic.org/2020/08/27/move-out-of-the-way-bering-sea-fishing-boats-report-close-encounter-with-russian-military/
  16. Sweet. Loved to be wearing them at the old Jensen's Yard When working on Sofia but I guess it will be at Boathaven.
  17. Post here, or in any thread you like. If you've already got an account, you're not eligible for this particular contest, but you can engage in this one if you'd like:
  18. The instructions are not clear. Do you mean we post here? Does this count? What if someone already has an account?
  19. The Gloucester Times reports that the state of Massachusetts is looking to extend the fishing season in some areas, due to the Covid impact on commercial fishing. It will be interesting to see if other states follow suit and whether we see season extensions in other areas.
  20. No better place to put those new boots to the test than on this beautiful boat out in the Bering Sea!
  21. Nice day to fly the Mavic. Shout out to my deckboss, Kyle Moen. Found a minute to snap a quick photo. #Bluenorth #Longliner #Beringsea #summertimefishing
  22. The Brits have been looking into whether European lobsters are bothered by offshore wind development. Their findings? Offshore wind developed Orsted is one of the study's sponsors, but so is the Holderness Fishing Industry Group, so maybe it's not completely bunk.
  23. Pretty interesting story here about a University of Rhode Island researcher who's looking to map where commercial fishing activity actually happens and how it would actually come into contact with offshore wind development, if at all: Also, I love that he randomly picked squid.
