Dip Netting Along the Seward Highway - May, 2008

As we drove along the Seward Highway, we saw many people "dip netting". They troll for fish with a net. The video at the bottom shows how it is done. It is a family activity, as you can see. We saw dozens of people trying their luck. Very few were catching any on this day. One of the fishermen allowed us to film his catch in the cooler.

Catch of the day: Hooligans. we are told they are very oily fish. You just cut off the head and cook the whole fish. There are small bones in them that you eat. You can see that they are not very big. These fish are in a picnic cooler.
