On our second day at sea aboard the Sikumi http://www.sikumi.com/ the group I was with got to board Scott McAllister’s Purse Seiner boat to see how they catch salmon. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seine_fishing Scott and his crew had been out for a while already when we caught up to them near Chatham Straits. Fishing these waters for more than forty years Scott knows a great spot when he see it.
