Each year a few things mark the anticipated return to the fishing grounds. After a two-year break due to COVID, I look forward to seeing friends and fellow fishermen at ComFish. For many of us, this annual gathering marks the start of preparation and frenzy for the upcoming fishing season. 

For those of us who fish Bristol Bay, we have got our eyes on what could be another record-breaking season. Last year shattered records with over 66 million sockeye returning to the bay. A few weeks ago, Alaska Department of Fish and Game released its 2022 Bristol Bay Commercial Salmon Fishing Outlook, which projects Bristol Bay’s run could top more than 73 million fish!
