The internet allows us to stay in touch with friends and family in real-time ways we never could until quite recently.
We use the “Tubes” to share pictures and stories , instant messaging for all kinds of things, youtube to share videos. It’s easy to stay in touch with folks daily , if desired.
But when the fish run it’s time to just hang a GONE FISHIN sign on your monitor for a few weeks . Whether folks are fishing for subsistence or commercially, no one has time to chat, the fish won’t wait!
Vic and hubby have been running both ends against the middle to get their small commercial operation ready . Fish are due any day.
Some prep started weeks ago- permits, ordering supplies, vetting and readying equipment and hiring crew.
Now it’s time for hauling the buoy & anchor out to set the ‘running line’ that the nets hang off
Now it’s time to get crew quarters spiffed up and furnished
And time to welcome the crew!
