Alaska Bering Sea Crabbers are up north fighting the cold seas during crab season right in front of us, Alaska Bering Sea Crabbers are extra tough salty dogs. Alaska Salmon Season is coming up next, this winter tenders gear up for spring to run back uphill.  Bering Sea Crab season Alaska is only for the toughest humans.  Bristol Bay gillnetters are buzzing around and back on land some are splashed in the water, SE AK seiners already ran down hill, fall fishing in the PNW is over, now they are back to home port for the winter months in the lower 48 mostly in Seattle Ship Canal.

Commercial Fishing in the Pacific Northwest to Alaska is a way of life, running up and down hill from AK to the NW. Our thriving commercial boating and fishing maritime industry in the NW is home to some of the largest seafood companies in the world.  From Deadliest Catch the TV on Discovery channel put this industry on the world map.  For those of us who grew up commercial fishing in Alaska and running the boat up and down hill each season being a part of these fisheries is a way of life and tradition.  In the NW we love our sheer number of fresh seafood houses available in every neighborhood. Thankfully, we also have a backbone of large-scale supplies & gear providers that keep the paddle wheels of our industry turning.

Salty Dog gives you the big 3 Commercial Fishing Supply Companies:   fishermen from SE, Bristol Bay, the Bering Sea and so on…. all the way down the coast trust for quality, reliable gear.  No matter where you’re fishing, you need gear. And the better gear you’ve got, the better catch you’re going to get. Quality fishing gear, safety and a strong reliable crew make life grand when you hit the fishing grounds!
