The Dungeness crab fishing boat, the Mary B II, capsized while crossing the Yaquina Bay bar Tuesday night in 12- to 14-foot seas, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.

The Coast Guard was able to recover one body, 48-year-old James Lacey, from South Toms River, New Jersey, with a helicopter. He was taken to Pacific Communities Hospital where he was pronounced deceased. A second body, Joshua Porter, 50, from Toledo, Oregon, washed ashore near Nye Beach.

National Fisherman has a piece on one of the grosser aspects of salmon fishing.


Ghost fish and floaters.




And the number of drop outs this season was substantially higher than any of us have seen.


At one point there was a pink line of death, anywhere from 5 to 10 dead fish per foot for over 20 miles  down our beach.

Gorton’s Fisherman one of the “Sexiest Men on the Planet”



I don’t know man. He doesn’t have enough slime, fish, scales, and blood spattered on him.


Also, given his acting career, via “Queer Eye”, we can safely assume he likes Fish Sticks in his Mouth.

Looks like we have Russian... CODlusion!!!




‘Are we getting invaded?’: U.S. fishing boats faced Russian aggression near Alaska




Tim Thomas, a U.S. captain on the fishing vessel Northern Jaeger, encountered the Russian activities on Aug. 26 when his ship was operating more than 20 nautical miles inside the U.S. economic zone. After a Russian plane directed Thomas to take his boat out of the area, he said, he responded that he was within the U.S. zone, not on the Russian side, and that the Russians could not order them to leave.

At that point, he said, a Russian military ship joined in and issued similar orders.

“At this point, I’m going, ‘What’s going on here? Are we getting invaded?’” Thomas said in an interview.

Thomas said he contacted the Coast Guard, but the officers there, he said, seemed to be unaware of the Russian operations. They told him he was responsible for the safety of his crew. But he was reluctant to leave: They were finding some of the best fishing of the season, and the Russians had ordered him not to return to those productive grounds for nine days.

The Russians, who were running a military exercise known as Ocean Shield that involved some 50 warships and 40 aircraft operating throughout the Bering Sea, were adamant, and their warnings grew more intense. U.S. officials have since said that a Russian submarine launched a cruise missile from the Bering Sea that day.

As he considered the safety of the 130 people on his boat, Thomas ultimately decided to leave. He estimates the forced departure cost his company more than $1 million in revenue.
