A DAY IN THE LIFE
Day in the Life of a Fisherman: Ever wonder what it’s like to be a fisherman? In this discussion, find out what an average day looks like, from the time the alarm clock rings and they make a last check on the weather at 3 a.m., to the time they pull the dinghy up to the fish pier after mooring their vessel in the late afternoon. A fishermen’s primary focus is finding fish and catching them, but to do that requires a lot more. John Our and Tim Linnell will share all that they take into consideration daily, from wind and wave reports, to government reporting, to fish auction prices, and more, as they describe a life on the water.
