I bought troll-caught and halibut. The kids working for me iced fish, iced the boats, loaded totes of fish onto the tenders, and unloaded totes of ice and supplies onto the scow. I graded and bought, wrote tickets, sold fuel & supplies. The hours were long, daytime and middle of the night, whenever a boat needed/wanted to sell. I had shower and laundry facilities for the boat folks, too. Nice set up.

Hmmmmm.... Sarcasm at its finest and it went waaaaaaaaayyyy over gsxboy99's head.

The women have a saying about finding an Alaskan man, the odds are good, but the goods are odd...
