Seiners, Gillnetters, Processors and Tenders –  a lot of tenders are AK Bering Sea Crabbers who need to put the boat to work in the summer season – most have either already run up hill to AK or are leaving the lower 48 heading North bound in the next few days. Summer Salmon Season in AK is one of the funnest places to work your tail off & make a chunk of change – make sure you on the right boat with the right captain & crew!   May all fishermen & crew – be safe & watch your fingers, heads up!  Sink those nets!
