Recipes and snapshots of life in Bristol Bay, AK

With boats being pulled on every tide and many fisherman already having headed home for the season, the grounds price was still a mystery until today… 

Icicle Seafoods posted $0.50 a pound for the sockeye grounds price in Bristol Bay and Deckboss is reporting AGS has posted the same. This is a big price drop from last year’s $1.20 per pound, but we were prepared for such news and the fishing season’s bills are paid despite being a bit of a disappointment. Meanwhile the boys are still bringing in some poundage over on the Eastside thanks to the Kvichak, so one can’t complain too much. 

We are still awaiting the chilling bonus to be annouced, holding out hope for that silver lining… 

It has been such a strange season this year with the run coming in late and the huge forecast we didn’t know what to expect but hey, that’s fishing.
