Lynden-based fishing boat owner fined $11000 for spill

Lynden-based fishing boat owner fined $ 11000 for spill
News from Bellingham Herald:

The Lynden-based owner of a fishing vessel has been fined $ 11,000 because one of its boats spilled diesel into Elliott Bay in Seattle, the Washington state Department of Ecology announced Thursday, Jan. 15.

The Sept. 13, 2013, spill occurred while the Bristol Leader was refueling from a tank truck at Terminal 91. The spill totaled 181 gallons.

An oil spill containment boom had been placed around the boat before fueling began, so that kept most of the diesel from spreading beyond the water immediately around the 167-foot catcher-processor.

Alaskan Leader Fisheries is the boat’s owner.

The spill occurred because incoming fuel went to a partly full tank instead of empty tanks when the boat’s chief engineer didn’t follow the company’s procedures and loading plan, according to Ecology.

Alaskan Leader had no prior spills in the state, Ecology said, and cooperated with the cleanup response and investigation.

The state also billed the owner $ 3,681 for cleanup oversight and damage to natural resources.

Fisheries supervisor: Prime-time fishing has arrived
News from Tuscaloosa News:

Published: Friday, April 4, 2014 at 11:00 p.m.
Last Modified: Saturday, April 5, 2014 at 12:31 a.m.

It’s been a long, cold winter, and a lot of people are ready for spring. Officially, it’s already arrived according to the calendar. The Major League Baseball season has opened and flowering trees are risking getting killed back by a late frost.

But Jay Haffner, District Fisheries Supervisor, said the fish made it official this week. Haffner called Monday from the deck of the electro-shock boat the state uses to do its sampling to say that on a glorious blue bird day, prime time for fishing had arrived.

“We’re shocking up crappie in two feet of water,” Haffner said. “They’re headed to the banks and the bass are headed to the banks.”

State biologists conducting sampling surveys on the Black Warrior River were finding large numbers of crappie around weed beds on the banks. That means the crappie spawn is on and the hottest action of the year is now there for the taking.

Haffner said water temperatures were in the 60s and the weather is pleasant.

“People need to get out of the office and go fishing,” he said.

Coast Guard offers safe boating course

Of course, it’s hard to get after spawning crappie without a boat. And anybody who is going to be on the water should know how…………… continues on Tuscaloosa News

New boat seeks safer fishing on deadly Bering Sea
News from Montana Standard:

2013-12-13T16:36:23Z 2013-12-13T18:07:59Z New boat seeks safer fishing on deadly Bering SeaThe Associated Press The Associated Press

Few professions are as deadly as commercial fishing on the Bering Sea.

Crews face rogue waves and frigid gales that toss around heavy machines and cause vessels to pitch, yaw and roll on turbulent waters. The dangers are so constant that they’ve been made lore on the long-running cable show “Deadliest Catch.”

Over the years, efforts to keep crew members safe have taken many forms, from changing the culture among fishermen to equipping them with emergency gear such as survival suits that can help them survive the icy waters longer.

The latest proposed solution is being built in a dry dock north of Seattle: a $ 35 million, 190-foot vessel that would enable fishermen to work behind the safety of the hull, rather than out on the deck amid the dangerous wind and waves.

The ship, commissioned by Seattle-based Blue North Fisheries, represents the culmination of efforts to keep fishermen safe, said Chris Phillips, managing editor of Fishermen’s News, an industry publi…………… continues on Montana Standard

Crew races to recover sunken fishing boat in Penn Cove
News from The Seattle Times:

Originally published May 26, 2012 at 6:30 PM | Page modified May 26, 2012 at 11:40 PM

COUPEVILLE, Whidbey Island — Inside a high-tech, converted Chevy truck, state officials and contractors are racing to figure out how to hoist up that old, sunken 140-foot fishing boat, which weighs maybe 750,000 pounds.

There’s a sense of urgency: Crews already have recovered 1,400 or so gallons of oil that leaked from the derelict boat after it caught fire and sank two weeks ago, shutting down the island’s world-famous mussel beds. Now is the mussels’ peak spawning season; their harvest has been closed until cleared by toxicity tests.

The truck, with an ominous-looking skull-and-crossbones “hazardous materials” logo on its side, is a temporary office for state and private contractors with laptops and smartphones, sometimes sketching on the whiteboards that line the walls.

It is a delicate and plainly brutish operation they are planning, with the hoisting maybe on Monday, but more likely in two or three days.

For example, what happens if the boat landed atop a rock spire and has a huge hole in its side?

It’s not until the boat is lifted to just below the water surface that they’ll find out. The boat will hang there for whatever work needs to be done.

“We can patch a six-inch hole by welding underwater. But a 10-by-15-foot…………… continues on The Seattle Times

Crew members sentenced for roles in failed bid to sink fishing boat off south …
News from The Republic:

CAMDEN, N.J. — Two men who admitted roles in a botched attempt to sink a fishing boat to collect insurance money are now headed to federal prison.

Erik James of Goshen and Christopher Martin of Wildwood both received 30-month terms when they were sentenced Tuesday. The men, who are both 40 years old, were former crew members on the Alexander II fishing boat.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office has said the pair and three other defendants — including the ship’s owner — sought $ 400,000 in insurance money. They took the boat to a point about 86 miles southeast of Cape May and tried unsuccessfully to sink it, after falsifying the ship’s log.

James and Martin had both pleaded guilty to complaints charging them with conspiracy to destroy the boat on the high seas.

Fishing boat sank so fast off Washington there was no time for distress call …
News from Washington Post:

Jason Bjaranson knew the perils of the life he had chosen as a commercial fisherman in the Pacific Ocean. He practiced the life-or-death task of getting into his survival suit so he could do it in 13 seconds. He was starting to think he should buy some life insurance, maybe even find a safer job on shore. But he had bills to pay, and a family to feed.

None of that made any difference when the Lady Cecelia went down in the night this past weekend, probably in a matter of seconds, 17 miles off the rugged coast of southern Washington. When the Coast Guard reached the scene hours later, there was nothing but an oil slick, an empty life raft and some crab pots to mark where the 70-foot trawler disappeared, leaving the skipper and three crewmen missing and their families mourning another loss at sea.

Eric Sharp: The Ultimate Fishing Show wish list
News from Detroit Free Press:

It’s always surprising how some of the best stuff you see at the Ultimate Fishing Show in Novi also is the simplest and least expensive. A great example is the Minno-Buoy bait net on sale at the Lakeside Fishing Shop booth.

Invented by a Canadian who has obviously done his share of ice fishing, it’s a plastic ring with a shallow net attached to the bottom that floats on the top of your bait bucket.

When you want a minnow just tip the ring down, allow a few to swim into the net and let the buoy float on the top while you pick minnows out of the center as needed.

There’s no need to chase minnows around a bucket with a dip net, scaling and killing half of them, or get more than the tips of your fingers wet, something every ice angler will appreciate.

“It’s genius, and it’s only $ 5.95,” said Dan Chimelak, Lakeside’s owner. “It’s one of those things that make you wonder, ‘Why didn’t someone do it 100 years ago?’ “

There are more than 150 exhibits at the Ultimate Fishing Show, which ends today at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi. If you’re an angler seeking something to do on a winter day when you can’t ice fish, it’s worth the $ 10 entry fee (and another $ 5 for parking).

From boats to kayaks

There are more booths than last year, probably another sign the economy is improving and people are less worried about spendin…………… continues on Detroit Free Press

Wildwood man pleads guilty in plot to sink fishing boat, collect insurance money

Wildwood man pleads guilty in plot to sink fishing boat, collect insurance money
News from Atlantic City Press:

A Wildwood man pleaded guilty Monday to charges of conspiring to sink a boat off Cape May to collect insurance money, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced Monday.

Arthur “Todd” Vitola, 50, entered his plea before U.S. District Judge Renee Marie Bumb in federal court in Camden.

Court officials said Vitola – who was hired to be a crew member for the Alexander II – attempted to sink the boat in 2009 so the owner, Scott Tran, 38, of Cherry Hill, Camden County, could collect on the $ 400,000 insurance policy with State National Insurance Co.

Vitola was offered $ 2,000 for his participation in the scheme.

On Aug. 2, 2009, the 75-foot Alexander II left Cape May with little fuel, ice, food and other supplies for a fishing trip. However, the boat’s logs were falsified to read that more than 50 fish, weighing about 3,000 pounds, also were on board.

Once the boat was about 86 miles southeast of Cape May, the captain and crew attempted to sink it.

Others involved in the scheme include Erik James, 40, of the Goshen section of Middle Township; Christopher Martin, 40, of Wildwood; and Manh Nguyen, 58, of Philadelphia.

James and Martin both pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges for their roles as crew members. Nguyen was Tran’s “right-hand man” in the plot. He pleaded guilty Nov. 12, 2011.
