First of all, I would like to remind everyone that I am fishing in the Yukon Delta, where the Yukon River flows into the Bering Sea. This is a dangerous river and an even more dangerous sea. And Heaven help you if you ever fall out of the boat because it is DEEP!
So that’s rule #1: Stay your butt in the boat.
Rule #2: Stay alert.
This is a very important rule because when you’re out there commercial fishing, there’s never a slow day or a calm minute. It’s GO TIME from the time you step into the boat until the time you step out of it at quitting time.
