Eel Fishing 101

This is my fifth year being a commercial eel fishermen. You'd think after four years I'd have learned my lesson and found a new career path.

I can't talk to much about how this season is going catch wise. I have been sworn to secrecy. But what I can tell you is that I am enjoying this season a whole lot more then I did last year. Everything is running better and the attitude around here is a whole lot more upbeat.

Now normally I'm not allowed to post photos of me on the job, but this year I have some special permission. Here are a few snapshots of me and the guys working.

Now in case you were actually fooled by those pictures. This is not even close to what my job here in New Brunswick looks like. But wouldn't it be cool if that was what I actually did?

These are more accurate pictures showing what we do:

Except out nets look more like this:

Well that brief description of my job is all I got time for, since Sam really wants to play Towerfall and he can't do that if I am using my laptop.
