STEP AWAY FROM THE LEDGE, PEOPLE…
THE BASEBALL SEASON IS A LONG AND WINDING ONE…SORRY FOR THE DELAY IN THE EMAIL, BUT I WAS AWAITING CONFIRMATION ON A FEW THINGS OTHERWISE I’D PUT THEM IN THE EMAIL AND THEY WOULD BE ALMOST GUARANTEED TO BE A NO SHOW.

HOPE YOU HAD A GREAT SPRING BREAK!  WE MISSED YOU THIS WEEK, BUT NOW THAT YOU’RE ALL RESTED UP AND BACK FROM YOUR TRIP, LET’S GET BACK TO THE BUSINESS OF EATING SOME GREAT SEAFOOD!!

SPRING IS OFFICIALLY HERE…M’S ARE UNDERWAY AND THE FRESH SEASONS ARE FIRING UP EVERY WEEK…
THIS WEEK OREGON KICKED OFF THEIR TROLL-CAUGHT KING SEASON (WHICH HAS BEEN SLOW SO FAR SO WE AREN’T SEEING ANY YET)
AND THE FRESH PINK SHRIMP SEASON WHICH IS OFF TO A GREAT START!  AS MOST OF YOU KNOW, WE RUN THE LARGE, SWEET CANADIAN SHRIMP MOST OF THE YEAR, BUT FOR THE FIRST COUPLE WEEKS OF THE SEASON THE LITTLE OREGON SHRIMP ARE HARD TO BEAT!!  THESE LITTLE BABIES ARE HIGHLY PERISHABLE SO AFTER A COUPLE WEEKS OF THE SEASON WE OFTEN RUN INTO QUALITY ISSUES DUE SO WE TYPICALLY GO BACK TO THE CANADIAN PRETTY QUICKLY.  RIGHT NOW, THEY ARE TOP QUALITY AND VERY FRESH!!
GREAT WEEKEND FOR A NICE SHRIMP SALAD OR SHRIMP COCKTAIL ALONG SIDE THAT
BEAUTIFUL SLAB OF COLUMBIA RIVER SPRING CHINOOK
WHICH ARE PLENTIFUL THIS WEEKEND!
WE WERE RUNNING A SPECIAL THIS WEEK ON THESE GUYS, BUT WE JUST HAD A NEW OPENER AND THE PRICE IS UP SLIGHTLY.
THE FISH WERE JUST SWIMMING SO THEY DON’T GET ANY FRESHER UNLESS YOU CATCH THEM YOURSELF AND EAT IT ON THE BOAT!!
THEY’VE BEEN SO AWESOME THIS YEAR!!  WE’VE HAD A HUGE RATIO OF UPPER RIVER FISH TO LOWER RIVER FISH SO FAR!!  THOSE ARE THE ONES YOU WANT!!  THEY ARE LOADED WITH FAT TO CARRY THEM OVER THE DAMS AND UP TO THE SNAKE!!  BEST SALMON OF THE YEAR!!!
(SOUNDS LIKE WE MIGHT SEE SOME OREGON TROLL KINGS FOR SUNDAY)

LIKE I SAID LAST WEEK, THE BEST PART OF THE HALIBUT SEASON IS THE BY-CATCH AND THAT HOLDS TRUE THIS WEEK!!
BIG FAT SWEET FILLETS OF DELICIOUS ALASKAN LONG LINE LING COD AND ABSOLUTELY AMAZING LONG LINE ROCKFISH!!
ROCKFISH WON’T BE HUGE STUFF LIKE WE’VE HAD ALL WEEK, BUT IT’S SUPER FRESH, FIRM, AND SWEET!!
FISH TACOS THIS WEEKEND!!

ANOTHER FAVORITE PART OF THE FRESH HALIBUT SEASON
ARE THE CHEEKS!!  SMALL SHOT OF THESE COMING IN TODAY!!
THEY’VE BEEN REALLY NICE THIS WEEK WITH SOME DECENT SIZE TO THEM.  HOPEFULLY THESE WILL FOLLOW SUIT!

LITTLE BIT OF LIVE RAZOR CLAMS
(THESE WILL GO QUICK!)
AND
FRESH SARDINES!!
(I KNOW I SAID FRESH SARDINES LAST WEEK AND IT TURNED OUT TO BE A BUST, BUT THIS WEEK WE HAVE CONFIRMATION THAT THEY ARE IN THE HOUSE AND SUPER NICE!)
THESE TOO WILL GO QUICK AS WE HAVE SOME SPECIAL ORDERS AGAINST THEM, BUT THERE ARE A FEW IN THE OPEN!!

BEAUTIFUL FRESH HALIBUT FILLETS, FRESH PETRALE SOLE, FRESH SWORDFISH, FRESH SASHIMI AHI, FRESH ALASKAN BLACK COD,
HUGE FRESH DRY PACK MAINE SEA SCALLOPS, FREAKISHLY HUGE BAJA BROWN SHRIMP, HUGE ALASKAN BASEBALL BATS (RED KING CRAB),
AND SO MUCH MORE!!
