I don't sell many fish to Sitka Sound Seafoods. I bought into the Seafood Producers Co-op, so they get most of my annual production.  I sold this trip to a cash buyer on the dock.

I could work out a great deal for you on some yelloweye, but I'm sure you'll understand I wouldn't be too excited about trading for kings  :chuckle:

Run, I happen to know another fellow in SE WA that could use some rockfish... Maybe we could get a group buy together for my next shipping day.  :dunno:

Yelloweye is my favorite!  I'll keep you in mind as a backup Skillet.

Mmmmm, yellow eye. My favorite. Lots of good eats right there.

If there is a group order for rockfish, I'd love to be part of it!

I could do a large-scale HuntWa rockfish group buy in mid-Nov if guys are interested?  I'm debating whether or not to go do a directed lingcod/yelloweye fishery in Nov - if I could get enough pre-sold here I'd go for it. 

Anybody else interested in some AK lingcod and rockfish?   :dunno:

How big of an order would you need to make it worth your while?

I'm totally ignorant beyond "pay money - get fish" but I'm interested. 
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

Here's some fillets to feast your eyes on. I guess was caught on a sport rod in Southeastern sometime this last April. I don't know how much it weighed but it's a big'un..

Wouldn't take too much per person - especially if I could get a volunteer in each community to help with distribution (for significant discount on their fish). Let me think on this a bit, I'll probably start a new thread on it tonight.

Really cool video. I never knew..............

Very cool video!
When I am baiting plug cut herring with sliding trail hook, never fails I will hook myself with the trail hook.  :bash:
So seeing that many hooks gives me the willies!  :yike:

  I'd be interested as well. I could also help distribution in Snohomish and Skagit County.
