    Make sure you have taken the pressure off the cylinders, Lock the motors up and get them resting all weight on the locks and they loosen pretty easily, also get a 3/4" locking collar on the shaft to hold the tool down so it doesn't slip up when you try and loosen. Easy work at that point.

    What is the Bi-Catch policy for that? Sounds very interesting, goes to show how untapped our offshore fishery really is, I am sure the Florida Swordfish Day fishery deep drop techniques would give someone a good shot at getting one here. It's just who's willing to put in the time, fuel and effort?

    If the Fish is iced right away after it is bled and goes through rigor first it is a lot easier to pull them, also it will help keep from tearing up the filet and minimize the gapping.

    So the windows in the back of my shop are 10 feet to the ground from the bottom, there is a large slope behind the shop. Also sealing the concrete was something I have never done and is a little bit of a leap in faith to see how it performs.

    Bristol Bay is basically the source for the largest percentage of Sockeye sold into Foodservice. So much is caught in such a short time that a great portion of it ends up in cans because they just cannot fillet it fast enough. I bought huge loads to have wild Salmon to sell through the Winter.
