I'm pretty well versed in commercial refrigeration and the older engines as well as any system used for navigation or living needs(inverters plumbing exetra) any boat related stuff I can ussualy help with
These are what we found to be the best colors
Yeah I've noticed that darker colors work great at first light and last light. We even tried glow in the dark stuff hours after the sun went down but its really rare to get them to bite once the light is gone. Best we have done is about an hour after dark they where still biting and we had a 100 fish circle going.
I lucked out into this job. Always wanted to be a commercial fisherman growing up. After western forest products moved their office out of Jordan River i did 7 years of timber framing and then i said fuck it. Walked the dock and this was the first boat i asked. Haven't left since. My boat owner was 65 at the time and he motivated me to get my tickets in order. Now I'm relief skipper and he's 70 but still going strong.
Off season I do a hunting trip to the queen Charlotte every year then play around on my snowmobile 😆 its nice not having to follow the rat race.
sometimes I do some lingcod or relief deckhanding on a crab boat but I really try not to haha. I got offered a boat to run to the south pacific in the winter time to fish albacore down there. Thats bassicly the end goal. The fishery is so addictive I would do this for free 😆
I was on scene when they retrieved the Captain and other crewman. First boat i ever fished beside. He was a great guy.we heard the mayday call and were 4 hours away. Longest 4 hours I ever spent on a boat. Was not nice out but nothing that should have sank a boat. Only 25 knots and 4 meter seas. Tragic. Rip captain.
