    wadin' boot,
    That's a pretty nice size one for a hatchery jelly. What, maybe 4 or 5 Lbs?
    We need a little more of this snotty weather to bring in the big natives though - I'm thinking it's still a little early.

    He has good reason not to!

    Every American should be required to spend at least one full season as crew. Work ethic, learning to work as a team, responsibility and camaraderie are the biggest rewards.

    Enjoy your years as crew... some of my best memories (but try for the skiff!).

    Well I stand corrected. I fished this morning and didn't see a single puffy jacket other than the one I left in the truck. I did see multiple jellies, but no hook ups. I think I'll go back out with fluro... I think these ones are getting leader shy.

    I've "climbed the ladder" stacking web on a seiner, pulling bags through the power block. I once looked up at the wrong time and with eyes wide open took a hot one full on the face. I wanted to die.

    David,
    You never forget that sting do you?
    I never got any in the eyes, but did get hit on the face a time or two while brailing fish, and on my arms a lot.
    I always preferred driving the skiff, even when everyone else was in the warm, dry galley drinking hot coffee while the wind and rain pelted down around me during a set.
    It may have gotten a little cold and wet, but at least I was out from underneath the power block and web while the jellies rained down!
    Great memories.

    Wow, hope that chest cold clears up. Last time I got something like that out of my lungs was after a 2 lb hash binge...

    You know, those killer jelly loogies kill 8 times as many people every year than do sharks. The statistics I read indicated 40 deaths per year, world-wide by jellyfish, and only 5 deaths by shark per year.

    In over 45 years of swimming or surfing in the ocean, I have personally survived many jellyfish attacks! But I've never been attacked by a shark.

    Ahhh... Jeremy, 2 lbs of hash is the equivalent of 880 grams.:eek: That would be at least a 2 or 3 years supply for any normal chronic recreational smoker (don't ask me how I know this). Are you sure that what you hacked up wasn't actually your lungs themselves?:confused:
