Title: Hanson Fish Co Group Buy #4 - Delivery Schedule
Post by: Skillet on December 08, 2019, 01:49:12 AM
I wanted to get this started as soon as I could, since time is running short between now and Christmas.  I don't have the full list of what's available yet as I have been waiting for some of my fish to arrive from Sitka (should have that nailed down by Tuesday evening), but the exciting things are the King Crab, Bering Sea Weathervane scallops, and Spot Prawns! I'll update this first post as soon as I can.

Golden King Crab Clusters

I'm buying Golden King crab from the Handler, a big ol' Bering Sea crab boat.  The skipper sent me some pics to share with you, and I'll post most of them up on the Commercial Fishing thread.

The Golden (brown) Kings are caught in the Aleutian chain and a bit north into the Bering Sea.  They are smaller than Red Kings, but roughly half the price per pound and I think they are super tasty.  These are "clusters" that include legs, claws and the very meaty body section.  The clusters are pre-cooked and brine frozen, so all you need to do is thaw and reheat.  I bought a few clusters to test out last month, and they were amazing.  These are all a 700+ gram sort, so at least 1.5# each cluster.  Big ones will go 2-ish #'s.  So, they're all pretty close in size.  Pic of that below.  Warning - they are spiny!  I cut the shells with scissors before I reheat them now to save on the bloodletting at the table.

The Golden King Crab clusters are priced at $27.50/#, or for $25/# if you buy a 28# case.*


*I know it's a lot of money and it's not for everybody, but if you compare them to the Red King crab clusters at $50+/#, it seems reasonable-ish.  These are likely going to be the cheapest King Crab clusters you are going to find this year.  I also considered buying the boxes of "legs and claws" to get the price down a bit, but those are the broken and knocked-off pieces, and there are no meat-filled body sections.  So your yield per pound goes down.  In the interest of getting the best value per dollar for Team HuntWa, I invested in the sections and committed to the smallest amount of crab that I could to get the good price.  That also meant I have no guarantee I can get more.  So, those that are interested might want to post up early.  If there's a bunch of interest, I need to get my increased order in right away.  Red King Crab is super scarce this year, and the Golden's are going fast.




Bering Sea Weathervane Scallops, 20-30 count

If you've had weathervane scallops before, you know what the big deal is.  I've only had them a few times the whole time I've been fishing, and it's always been because a diver friend decided to share.  Pic for size reference.   You can buy cheaper scallops, but those are usually smaller bay scallops from the east coast, or even scallops they farm and soak with phosphates to increase the water retention  :o.    These Weathervanes are a very limited availability product.  I was offered a couple of cases in this size and that's all I get for the year.  Order soon if you want some.

The Weathervane Scallops are priced at $21.50/#, or $20/# for a 5# bag.






Spot Prawn Tails, IQF

As before, I have some Individually Quick Frozen spot prawn tails for sale.  They're running a bit bigger this year than last year on average.  Going to do them by the box, bag and case.  Boxes are now 1 kg (2.21#) instead of 2.5# to meet commercial expectations.  Bags are the same as last year, and the case is a deal for the guys that want to split up a batch among friends.

1 kg box (2.21#) = $35, 2 for $65
4lb bag = $55
50# case = $650






Ocean Troll Chum Salmon, FAS carcass

Really nice ocean chum salmon, Frozen At Sea.  Headed and gutted, fish carcass sizes range from 3.5# to just under 10#.  Treated exactly the same as my kings and coho - pressure bled, frozen immediately and glazed.  I catch a few of these every year while king and coho fishing, and have a small amount I haven't yet sold.  Chum have gotten a bad rap over the years, but these dime-bright ocean fish will impress.  I'm offering these up here because I think there's probably a group of folks that want to put a big smoker load project together, or maybe some folks that just want to try them on the grill.  I've pickled them with great results as well.

The FAS Chum is priced at $4.50/# by the fish, $4/# for 50# and up.





Black Cod / Sablefish

Product of my co-op in Sitka.  As mentioned in some posts below, Sablefish are very rich.  They have a high fat content and it is a super tasty fish.  These are deep water fish, hook-and-line caught out of anywhere from 1200 to 5000'+ feet deep. 

These portions are pin-bone-out, skin-on, 5-7 oz portions in a vacuum pack.  I'm offering these by the pound or by the case.

Sablefish vacpac portions, PBO, skin on, 5-7oz = $15.00/#, or $140 for a 10# box (contains about 25 portions).

I'm also considering getting a case of black cod carcasses in the 4-5# class.  These are headed and gutted, collars off.  You'll need to thaw and do a little bit of knifework yourself to get a pair of filets off of them in the 1.4-1.75# class, but at a nice discount.  I need to get these by the case of 50#, so if we get enough interest I'll try out a case with you guys.

Sablefish H&G carcass, individually frozen and glazed, 4-5# size = $9.25/#, or $425 for a 50# case





Halibut

A product of my co-op in Sitka.  There's a fair chance some of the halibut I caught this year ended up in these vac-pac portions.  These are cut a bit bigger than the sablefish at 7-9 oz's per vacpac portion.  North Pacific hook and line caught halibut, processed in Sitka close to the grounds. No skin, no bones - easy meal prep!

Halibut vacpac portions, skin off, 7-9oz = $18/#, or $170 for a 10# box.

Like the sablefish, I'm going to try and offer up a cool deal for the folks that want to put a little bit of sweat equity into their winter fish supply.  I've been given access to my Co-op's headed and gutted halibut stock, and I'm offering up the 20-40# fish this year.  Here's the deal, tho - I've got to buy a WHOLE TOTE of fish to do this with you guys.  That means we'll keep track of the orders, and as soon as I get to 900 or so pounds I'll call in and see what tote they have to match up with our buy.  If we don't make 900#, we're just not a big enough player this year and this part of the offer dies.  These are frozen, obviously, and need to be thawed and fletched out, or sawn into steaks (I have access to a meat band saw I might be able to borrow for some guys). I can't guarantee you a 22#, a 30#, 39# fish, etc, but indicate the number of fish you'd like and a preferred size - and we'll do our best to meet your request.  A little flexibility will be needed, but if we want to start buying farther up the chain, this is how we get there.  So get ready to fire up the vacuum packers and move some flatties!

Halibut, H&G carcass, 20-40# = $9.75/#






Misc Rockfish Filets

Another product from my Cooperative.  These are vacpac, pin bone out, skinless filets.  They could be black rockfish, widow, rosethorn, etc.  Just about any rockfish but yelloweye or quillback native to Southeast Alaska - but all good, and all processed right in Sitka.  This is only bycatch from troll and longline fishing - no crushed dragger fish here.  Super fish taco stock!

Rockfish filets, vacpac, PBO, skin off, assorted sizes = $8/# or $75 for a 10# box.






Albacore Loins

I'm pretty excited about this one - the Cooperative is letting me have a shot at the FAS albacore loin stock.  A bit of information regarding these loins-

Albacore is landed in Washington one of three ways - fresh, brine frozen, and Frozen At Sea.  Fresh is self-explanatory, but the frozen types are quite different.  Brine frozen fish are caught, bled and then tossed into a super salt saturated liquid brine tank that is chilled down to -10 degrees F.  These fish are destined for the canners.   Our FAS fish are caught primarily on jigs, bled and then hung by the tail in the blast freezer.  This creates a ram-rod straight fish.  They are then offloaded to a processor who actually bandsaws the fish while frozen into lengthwise quarters, then literally grinds off the skin and backbone!  The full sized, clean loin is then vacuum packed frozen - so they never thaw out from the first freezing.  This makes a huge difference in the quality of a delicate meat like albacore.  These loins have not been available to us members for two years, so getting access to them now that we've had a good tuna year is pretty neat.

Washington Albacore loins, vacpac = $11.25/#, or $230 for a 22# box





Smoked Coho gift pack, 1# portion

I went to a different smoked fish processor this year, and the packaging is a little less fancy - but I get to pass a bit of savings on to you folks that way.  This is your standard 1# coho filet, smoked and packed in a foil pouch.  Multi-year shelf life, great to send as a gift.  Next year I'll have my own box made for it, but this year it's a standard gift box and the price reflects that.  This is a

Smoked Coho gift pack, 1# portion = $22 each, 2 for $40.






Ocean Troll Coho Portions

Another Cooperative product, and something I may have supplied product to produce.  These are 5-7 oz, skin-on, pin bone out, vacpac coho portions.  Easy meal to deal with, and these portions are great for those smaller meals.  All hook and line, no nets.  You know the deal!

Ocean Troll Coho Portions = $12.50/#, $115 for a 10# box.






Tuesday update - final addition to the group buy-


Lingcod FAS Carcass, Western Cut

Troll bycatch lingcod, headed and gutted.  These came on my boat during the king season as bycatch.  Average 11# each, range from 7-ish to 15#. 


Lingcod FAS Carcass = $6/#.







Still looking to get my image hosting program up soon and add pics to each offering.  Thanks for looking - :tup:

Holy smokes folks - I go away for a day and you guys are doing all the work here!  Thanks for the interest and support; I actually enjoy doing this for this group.  :tup:

I'll try and answer a few questions -

Roughly how many pounds are in your picture on the baking sheet?

I believe that pic of crab clusters was about 5#-ish.  Fed three people easily with a few side dishes and a couple barley pops apiece.   I've found that about a cluster per person is a generous portion for people who like some crab.  It's pretty rich stuff, a bit moreso than Dungeness, in my opinion.

Are you shipping or doing the Washington tour again???  :o

No shipping charges or need to arrange for that, it's all delivered to agreed-upon pickup points that work for everybody.  I'll range far and wide to make it happen for you guys before Christmas, though.  And with the generous offer of help from @ridgeratt above and possibly a few other unwitting recruits, I'm sure it will come off pretty smoothly.   :chuckle:

I'm definitely in, trying to get a couple of guys at work to go in as well.  How does your shipping work?  Is it better to put together several smaller orders into a single shipment or just ship everyone individually?
Great questions.   

For the fish pricing, if you have one guy place a single order to hit the box size discounts, and divide it up amongst your friends after you get it home, that's going to be cheaper by the pound.

For shipping, I'm the main guy.  Thank goodness I love to drive around the state and meet new folks along with the folks I haven't seen in a long time.  The last big buy I did on frozen fish was done via me driving to main distribution locations and handing fish off.  Worked out great, I think.  There were several guys that picked up for others and hauled them out to the hinterlands (like @ridgeratt running north, @machias covering the ID panhandle, @woodchuck doing the Walla Walla shuffle, etc.).  I'm based in the Everett area, but am planning on doing runs going North to Bellingham,  South to Vancouver/Portland, and East to Spokane/South Central to Tri Cities.  Willing to stop nearly anwhere on the way to meet up and hand off fish.  If there happens to be a decent amount of fish heading to Metaline Falls and we can't arrange for an intermediate transfer, then I'll go to Metaline Falls.  Just trying not to drive 100 miles out of my way for two halibut portions to help keep costs down. 

If we just can't seem to make a connection via the HuntWa transport network, we'll discuss other options that cost extra.  Wasn't a problem last time, though.   :tup:

Hope this answers your questions?

Good question on payment.  I'll post the boilerplate on the first page, but the general idea is - payment in advance, on pickup, Paypal (gift only, please), cash, or check - it is all ok with me.  No HuntWa'er has burned me yet, and this site is the ONLY place on the internet I'd offer that up to.  Great group of folks here.   :tup:

I'll take 5lb of scallops if you are coming to yakima/ellensburg/cle elum area

Definitely gonna make that happen for you.  Thanks for working with me on the coho last spring!  :tup:
outstanding! I've got options for drop spots on the wetside too if you don't drum up enough Eastside business.

If the Yakima thing falls through, your scallops are safe with me, and I can get them to you fairly quickly.

I'd take 10# of scallops if you still have some available and a 4# bag of prawns and 5# of halibut.

I can meet in the Yakima area most days during the week but live in Wenatchee so I can transport to Wenatchee from the Yakima meet if you don't want to travel over this way.

I got the info back from the boat on the king crab cluster size.  These are all a 700+ gram sort, so at least 1.5# each cluster.  Big ones will go 2-ish #'s.  So, they're all pretty close.

Post by: Skillet on December 10, 2019, 10:15:20 AM
Looks great folks, thanks! 

Quick update on the scallops - I chatted with the Scallop guy, and he said something to the effect of "Thank you for your 3-times-a-day inquiries about stock and whether or not you can get more," and "please just place a single final order on Friday and pick them up on Tuesday."  That may not have been a direct quote, but I recall it was something like that...  :chuckle: Moral of the story is as of 10am Tuesday, there is two more 30# cases available to us, and we have until Friday to decide if we want them.  So order away, I'll post a warning when we're getting into the final case of scallops. :IBCOOL:

Payment and Delivery- Thankfully, this group of folks has been really great about paying promptly and with rubber-free checks so far.  I do see, however, a lot of newer folks coming to the buying group - which is great! With some of these high-dollar products I am paying for up front, hwoever, I feel a little more exposed than I have in the past.  So to alleviate any potential issues, I'm going to ask anybody that is relatively unknown on here (as determined by me, I suppose) to watch their inbox for a PM from me regarding payment and pickup/delivery scheduling as the order taking slows down.  We'll work it out, no worries.  :tup:

I can pay now (Friends and Family) to help a little with that up front cost.

Any idea on dates yet?  We'll be visiting the family on the other side of the country for Christmas week.  If it is during that time, I can find someone that will meet up with you and fill their freezer until I get back.

Let's hold off on payments until I actually get my hands on the crab and scallops next week.


I'm thinking that I want to start distributing this stuff on the 18th through the 23rd.  I've got to nail down a commitment I have to do a "meet the fisherman day" at a large customer's shop in that timeframe, but outside of that it's a lot of windshield time for me.

1x 5 lb box of scallops
1x 4 lb bag of prawns

Let me know what other info you need!

Don't need anything right now, I'll pm you for meeting info soon though.  2 clusters will be between 3-4 pounds.  I'll let you know when I break open the cases and start sorting them for everybody.

Thanks!

Alright folks, I've got everybody's orders updated on the spreadsheet as of 17:15 tonight.  Looking good, and I'm going be testing just how flexible the scallop guy is!  :chuckle:

We're going to close the books on this order Friday afternoon.  If you want to place an order or modify, feel free to do so until then. 

Thanks for all the business, folks.  :tup:

That's for the PM @skillet.  I responded.  When are we looking at for delivery?  You have anyone to distribute to the spokane area?  How much is shipping?

I'll take 4lbs prawns - $55
5lb scallops - $100
1lb scallops - $21.50
1lb halibut - $18

Ok, got all the orders up to this point.  :tup:  Unfortunately, even though I've cleaned out a bunch of pm's, they apparently are still not landing.  So if you don't want to order on this thread, go ahead and email me at:
 hansonfishcompany@gmail.com

To answer asmith's question- This is a "delivered to general meet-up location" type of shipping program.  No charge if you come and either meet me somewhere, or work through the HuntWa network to get it moved.  I'm definitely going to be delivering into Spokane, and will most likely make a stop out in the Geiger area along the freeway (Flying J last time), a stop in the Valley, and a stop up around Francis and Monroe.  Dates coming soon.

We'll discuss the payment (ie., cash on delivery, check ok, electronic payment, etc).  If I don't know what area you're in, I'll ask that as well.  As soon as I get a better idea of what is going where, I'll get a route set up and we can start making plans to meet up for the deliveries.

Would staying on 182 in the Tricities be more convenient for you traveling from Walla Walla to Yakima instead of having to cross the river on 395 to Columbia Park and then back to 182?

Not sure how many TC folks you have on order, if a lot no need to change and mess with everyone.

If it's just me, there is a nice Park and Ride parking lot on the southeast side of the Queensgate exit that would be super convenient for you and your route.

Just a thought.  No biggie either way for me.  Just trying to shave some time off your travels.

Thanks Chris! I was at Sportco for 45 minutes before I sent the text, should have done it sooner, I'm bad. I'll be checking my cast iron lids within the week and get back to you. Hope you are enjoying the venison summer sausage on your travels.
Thank you for all the treats you bring the HW Family,
Merry Christmas

Hey there folks, got time for a quick check in here-

It's been a bunch of fun meeting up with you all  :tup:

A bit of good news - I traded some prawns to my scallop guy and got another case out of him.  I have about 20# left out of that one after taking care of a few guys that I had to turn down earlier.  I'll have them on the truck with me on the way back from Portland if anybody on that route is interested.

Thanks for all the support of a small-time fisherman fellas!

Bering Sea Weathervane Scallops, 20-30 count

If you've had weathervane scallops before, you know what the big deal is.  I've only had them a few times the whole time I've been fishing, and it's always been because a diver friend decided to share.  Pic for size reference.   You can buy cheaper scallops, but those are usually smaller bay scallops from the east coast, or even scallops they farm and soak with phosphates to increase the water retention  :o.    These Weathervanes are a very limited availability product.  I was offered a couple of cases in this size and that's all I get for the year.  Order soon if you want some.

The Weathervane Scallops are priced at $21.50/#, or $20/# for a 5# bag.

Arguably the best king crab I have ever sourced locally, as we ate most of it last night. By all means, grab the rest of his scallops, superb as anticipated, just flip them a little quicker than I did. As always, thanks Skillet and everyone have a great Christmas.

I put them in a roasting pan tightly covered with foil with 1/2 to 3/4 C water @ 375 for 15-20 minutes.
HIGHLY recommend following Skillet's suggestion to split the shells prior to cooking/serving. A little prior work makes it much more enjoyable.

That's what I would do, might be hard to split the shells frozen?
I would also suggest a clean glove of sorts on the hand when splitting the shells. I actually broke all the leg segments apart before splitting.
Easier to work with but screws up the presentation. If you go this route, be careful that you don't pull the meat out of the shell when separating segments. Pinch the meat so it stays in the shell and the cartilage comes free. Start at the end and work towards the body, then trim any remaining cartilage. The heating/steaming suggestion above is just going to warm them up, it's important that you don't "cook" them. Enjoy.

@Dan-o I asked @skillet how best to warm the crab since I didn't really have a way to steam them.  He suggested the oven, on a cookie sheet, at 475 degrees, for 8 minutes.  I did that and they turned out great.  I did defrost mine overnight, on a cookie sheet, as they drip/drain everywhere.  I also used kitchen shears and split all the legs before heating.  Knowing that I know now, I would probably split them in 2 different places on each leg as some of the less strong folks had some issues getting them apart.  Hope yours turn our great!

Feast of the Seven (Two) Fishes tonight.   Traditionally in Italy there are a full feast of seafood in Sicily.


Tonight we made lemon-thyme Parmesan crusted weathervane scallops and panko-Parmesan crusted rockfish.  Plated with a garlic pesto fettuccine that I made from scratch.  There were no leftovers.  Thanks Skillet!

I have been playing around with timing of the flipping and found 1:32 the perfect time on these posted.  Perfect cook and melt in your mouth with no overcook chew at all.
Warm the pan until the butter just starts to brown and slight smoke, throw them in and start the kitchen timer. 
The bear added a lot to the bite.  I was blow away at the combo in a single bite.

Super simple, just a light seasoning and then on the grill.  I wanted to be sure I had a good chance to get the true flavor the first time I had it.  I would agree it is one of the fattest fish I have had, it's kind of like ordering sea bass at a good restaurant and then making it 2-3 as good as the best you have ever had.

Hey fellas, thanks for all the kind words and support on this group buy.  I really dig the feedback, recipies, and pictures of the dishes you guys make.  Gives me inspiration to try a new way to cook up my own fish - I can get stuck in a rut with cooking fish. 

I'm up in AK right now, working on the boat and winter king fishing when weather allows. I'm getting a fair amount of interest in doing another buy before I dissapear for the summer season, and I still have some chum to get out to a few of you. King crab and scallops are sold out - we're gonna have to wait until next fall for those again - but I think I'll still have the rest of the product available. If it looks possible, I'll post up a new group buy thread.

Thanks again for the support, and keep those pics of dishes coming!  :EAT:

The roe we just snacked on with a little pinch of salt. Texture of the eggs (tobiko?) you get with sushi, and tastes like the sea.
The stock I'll use to make a cioppino or seafood stew of some sort.

Try squishing the roe juice into your garlic butter mix next time.

That's what I typically do.

I hit the stock, shells and all, with the stick blender, then strained out the solids. It's got some serious flavor. Just wish I had the heads too!

I made crab and spots last night... also made a ton of stock... it is pretty amazing flavor-wise but yes I missed the heads!

I made a full pack of scallops over the weekend.

Rookie mistake.

They all got eaten... but yes, it took 3 meals to do it  :chuckle:
