Aleutian Ballad

February 2013 ~ Warrenton, Oregon
Welcome Guest Blogger Liz McMaster who along with husband own the F/V Lady Laura. Her posts will primarily focus on the commercial fishing community here in Astoria-Warrenton. For those not familiar with the reagion, Warrenton is a close neighbor of Astoria where many of the local fishing boats docks. Cyndi Mudge
Captain David Lethin and crew are preparing the Aleutian Ballad (also a tour boat with the Bering Sea Crab Fishermen's Tour) to make the trek to Alaska and fish for Brown King Crab.  The dome shaped pots will be dropped to the ocean floor in hopes of securing a healthy load of the highly sought after crustaceans.  The Aleutian Ballad was also featured in the popular Discovery Channel series: "Deadliest Catch."

It's always fun to see this boat. I had never seen "The Deadliest Catch" until I got some videos after learning about the boat. It's interesting to have a TV star in our midst, and was even more interesting to see what crabbing is all about.
