My cod and my roommate Dan

I went out on the boat for a brief commercial fishing stint, cod jigging, as they call it. Turned out to be a bit of a disaster, catching only about a dozen cod in two days. The Cap was so frustrated, he just gave me the all the fish. (Kind of funny, actually!) So, two nights ago, I had to clean and filet all 12….and I’ve really never fileted a fish. So, Dan gave me a hand. As you can see from the video, he’s a pro. (Thanks Dan!)

Writer. In the summers, I live and work in the incredible state of Alaska, in the bush community of McCarthy; I pass the winters in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California. I'm working on a memoir-based nonfiction book on the American Dream. I blog, quite frequently, and I also have a novel in process, set in Alaska.

    I hope you watched carefully! Cleaning fish is a survival skill everybody should know! =)
