A Week in Pictures

Approximately 85 boats entered the already-crowded New Harbor earlier this week, on Aug. 5 and 6, to take part in the coveted annual Tri-State Canyon Shootout. The cobalt water was barely visible beneath the sea of white vessels, and the wooden pier around the Boat Basin could scarcely been seen, what with the hoards of onlookers and the fish strewn about the landing platform.

Hi:  I love your weekly pictures and try to see if I can remember where they might have been taken. It has been many years since I was last on the island.

I was wondering after looking at all the fish that were caught recently for the contest - what happens to all these fish???

Are there butchers who cut them up for the fisherman, do the fisherman cut them up and take the fish home or what.???

Curious to know as these fish are big.

Thanks for the pictures and reply.

Hi Richard, I believe that the fishermen do cut them up themselves, at least the smaller ones. There were some being cut up right after being weighed. I imagine they might have to send some of the larger ones out to be processed, though. Glad you like the pictures!
