May the holes in your net be no larger than the fish in it. ~Irish Blessing

A new purse seine stored in the drying yard at Fishermen’s Terminal in Seattle. Depending on the season, the Terminal is home to as many as 600 boats, some up to 250 feet in length. Drift-netters, trollers, trawlers, purse seiners and crabbers can all be seen at the docks.

The Northwestern and the Cornelia Marie from the “Deadliest Catch” are home-ported in Seattle and can sometimes be seen at the Terminal or Pier 91 in the off season. They are in Dutch Harbor now and are starting the Opilio season after finishing with the King crabs in November.
