I just heard that Peter Pan has already posted a Bristol Bay base price of $2.05 a pound for reds. Amazing.

In my experience Peter Pan is usually on the lower end of the price range, so in my estimation it can only go up from here.

Last year our base price was 1.25, the year before about $1.00 a pound, so yes, 2.05 is great, plus we get an extra 15 cents if we ice the fish.

BTW, I would be wary of that outfit you posted a screen shot of. That fillet portion pictured is a farm raised salmon.

I purchased a few pounds of sockeye fillets frozen and vacuum wrapped for $9 lb. I felt the price was fair. Halibut very high prices are near $20 a pound.

I have heard that kodiak price also.
Doesn't really make much sense for BB to be higher.
Let me know if you hear anything further about BB price.

Exactly a farm raised salmon. You can tell by how white were the rib bones were. Wild salmon are not near as white as that where the rib bones were.

When I can't get the wildcaught sockeye salmon filets at Sam's Club, I get this. It looks like I might want to stock up.

I make this from it for the smoked salmon cheese balls I take to conventions....

Slick - how is the Halibut quality? Where did you find it? I always ask to order cheeks. Would like to order. Thanks!

So your getting just under double of last year's price for reds. But with the cost of fuel and inflation it would seem your bottom line will be less.


Life is hard. It's even harder if your stupid!

As crazy as it may seem, I will be paying nearly the same for fuel this year as I have for the past several years. I set net, and buy my fuel from the village, $5.60 a gallon.
I don't know what fuel will cost the drift fleet; I assume more??

Those are drift boats, same area though. I used to do that, but now I set-net along the beach; our nets are anchored at both ends, the maximum distance we can be out from the high tide line is 1000 feet.
Our set net fishery is much more civil. We have a cabin on shore, and a good social life on the beach with other set-netters.
A couple of videos will give you an idea.

That's the way to go! I've seen Chip or Stan in Tanana do this too. It looks much less stressful than drifting on bumper boats. Thanks

The halibut price ($20) was fresh filets at my local grocery store in Montana. Cheeks cost more and you can order them online. Not sure who to recommend.

I don't really know what the big deal is with cheeks. They tend to be stringy and tough imo. If you really like coarse grained halibut just try to find fillets from a 75 plus pound fish.
I prefer chickens and up to about 25 pounds.

I agree, on the cheeks. Also, prefer fish about 40 pounds and under.


Made it almost 3 years without censor!

Won't be seeing Stan in Tanana doing that this year. Salmon likely gonna be closed all summer on the Yukon.

Yup no fishing for us poor sorryYukon fisherman again this year. Its the second year in a row. Not even subsistence fishing.

We will sit here and sulk once again as we see the reports of record salmon harvest and record high prices in Bristol Bay again.lol

I used to setnet out of Naknek. I should of stayed there. But its nice fishing here outside my door step and be home in time for bed every night.....if we fish.
