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.

Time to climb the ladder.
Skiffman next season... no jellies!
We used to wash the jelly-hell out of our eyes with milk. Kind of hard to snort it in/out of your nose though...
Learn to drive a skiff!
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.

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:
