This new edition contains new stories and updates from the super heated days when fishing fleets turned king crab into fortunes, to the annual circus of Bristol Bay's monster salmon runs, to the bucolic life of the open ocean trawler, the true stories in Fishing Up North: Stories of Luck and Loss in Alaskan Waters captures the flavor of the modern fisherman's life and fortunes in the waters off Alaska. Readers will find firsthand accounts of frightening weather, good fishing, terrible fishing, great days, and sweet living from the decks of crabbers, trawlers, longliners, trollers, and gillnetters. This book and others inspired film crews to trek to Alaska and cover the crabbing seasons for reality TV shows. Commercial fishing's home ports (Dutch Harbor, Kodiak, Naknek, Cordova, Petersburg, Sitka, and Seattle) are classic fishing towns, where docks, bars, and even quiet living merge in colorful portraits about life on the last frontier.
