    Default HOLY HERRING.... the million $$$ set (now on vid)

    The still pics were circulating around the fishing boards last spring, but WOWZA!

    One hour of fishing.... one set per boat.... over 10,000 tons of herring.

    How can anyone fathom that much biomass being removed from the oceanic ecosystem and not having an impact on the entire food web?

    its a drop in the hat compared to the amount of biomass the 1 billion pinks dropped into the gulf from Alaskan hatcheries...

    I know someone who was on one of the tenders pumping that set, she was pretty pissed at having to work late lol
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.
