Best, warmest fur there is. I am told they have over 1 million hairs per square inch. I don't ever see being able to harvest them again, they are just too dang cute :lol:
Some of the natives are allowed to harvest them, but they can't do it in sufficient numbers to make enough of a dent to help the shellfish industries. When I was a kid, commercial crabbing in Prince William Sound was still a thing, but that ended over 3 decades ago due in large part to the otters.

So I did a little halibut fishing today. We got into a nursery and got about a dozen like this guy.

Could only keep two each but two will make a surprising number of meals.

My brother went to Chitina yesterday and apparently limited out while dipnetting. So he is one busy (and tired) mofo at the moment. :lol:

Nothing like a dip netting limit to make work commence :help:

Nice looking fish!
What is that red thing behind you, never seen a contraption like that before. Is it a fertilizer thrower?

About 18 pounds, Lake of the Woods, Ontario

Was alone, and released. So best I could do. Hook was jammed bad in fishes jaw, so had to boat.

Our lodging for the trip.

Fallguy, headed up your way this coming week. Will be attending my college reunion at Carleton College in Northfield, then headed to Northwest Ontario for a week of fishing, then to my lake place near Hayward, WI on Lac Courte Oreilles for three more weeks.

Caught this guy on Thursday. Only the second tagged fish I’ve ever caught. 21” Redfish. The tag was completely covered with marine growth. Cleaned it up for the picture and replaced it on the fish where it had been. Called it in and will be receiving a hat for my reward. Told my friend that I was fishing with that the reward was $1000. ;)

My home is straight up highway 3 about 35 minutes from Northfield. I am off 3 about a mile and a half.

It sounds like you have a busy schedule. If you'd like to see the Skoota build; pm me and I'll send you my phone number. Kindest regards.

Where in Ontario? We got checked by COs this year. The one guy was a smirking sob all because I was too voluntary. Lotsa cops think volunteering means you are guilty, but I just try to talk them all to wear. Other guy was real nice.
