The past couple days I’ve been busy fishing since the Inlet’s been open every day since Monday and we fish from 7am-7pm.
Yesterday we left the house at 4am and didn’t get home until 10:30pm.
Both of my brothers are pretty thoughtful dudes; I think it’s something I need to work on being better at. Anyways, my younger brother brought early morning donuts to the boat for my dad and I.
On a side note, I have eaten more donuts in Kenai the past 2 weeks than I have the rest of the year. I like donuts and all (who doesn’t?) but I just don’t buy them at home. Here in Kenai, it’s something to do – you go to the grocery store and get coffee and a donut.
My favorite donut of all are the chocolate cream filled ones, you know the ones with 5000 calories.
What’s your favorite donut? Donut or muffin? Muffin or scone? None of the above?
And my older brother gave me one of his Rockstar Roasted Lights, my favorite energy drink. I sucked that baby down yesterday afternoon.
We started fishing in the morning and were busy nonstop all day long until the period ended. I would literally have 5 or less minutes to run inside and get something to eat or drink so I used my time wisely… I fed Elmer an avocado shell.
What? He needs his healthy fats too.
We were so busy because the fishing was so good. We actually sunk our net, something I’ve never seen before. The net floats on the top of the water because of the white corks holding it up, but the weight of all the fish sunk it. It was craycray.
All of those fish I had to pitch (throw) into the fish hold and when we deliver, I’ll have to pitch them again into brailers (big bags that hold the fish and are pulled out of the fish hold by a crane).
We normally deliver the same night that we fish, but the cannery is so backed up with fish that we still haven’t delivered 12 hours later! So last night we all went home and slept instead of waiting on the boat.
We were one of the last boats to come into port and my two brothers were alongside us which was kinda cool to see.
