Just a quick update for now.
The Jennifer A has been fishing now for about 48 hours and crab are starting to crawl into the pots! The weather has been good, so they've been able to set pots, and unload them with out to much rough water. There has been some freezing spray but nothing scary!
The picture in the middle, below, shows where the boat has slowed down to drop pots...Sometimes their path can make some unique designs!
I've made a couple changes to the blog. On the this page, I've included a map of Alaska. The boat is fishing crab somewhere in that big blue area, which is the Bering Sea, near the Priblof Islands, St. George, and St. Paul. Typically, fisherman are very quiet about where they are fishing, so if they are "on the crab" other boats won't find out and come join them. But Pat assures me I'm giving nothing away by saying the Jennifer A is fishing somewhere near the Priblofs.
I've also added a "subscribe" button on both this page, and the home page of the blog. Just type in your email address, and every time I add a new update, you will receive an email that lets you know an new update is ready to read. (I hope anyway, I hope I set it up right!)
