Idle Hour in the Siuslaw River with 10 tons of albacore. ~1978.
Walt Fosseck’s classic sailboat hull troller Otter> can be partially seen just off the bow. Walt has been fishing since the late ’40s and is full of good stories. Looking at his cross tree, I remember when he told me about being anchored off Tahkenitch and was awakened late at night by a bright light outside. He went on deck and watched a fireball move back and forth along that cross tree for quite a while before disappearing. The Otter was tied in her slip in the Siuslaw when I visited in 2010 and Walt was still fishing her.
