For many Alaskans, “summer” means three things for sure…fish, fish and fish! We dip, catch, and net fish…we clean, cut, can, freeze and smoke fish…we eat fish, love fish and sometimes we smell like fish. At least Destini does after logging over 136 hours at the processing plant in the past two weeks. She smells bad AND she’s cranky.
Oh, and Destini’s work sell fish…order online or by phone and they ship it right to your door! http://www.tannersfish.com/ Mention Backwoods Mom! You won’t get a discount, but they will think you are really cool! (And if Destini answers the phone, tell her how adorable she is.)
Thought I’d share some fishy photos and a video with those less fishunate!
Destini and her fish!

Bait or dinner…maybe both.
My brother filleting some fish…don’t worry, he’s qualified to perform surgery, so probably he can cut fish. ha
No matter how many times you do it, it’s still gross.
I pressure wash the scales off and Sandi fillets. I’m not allowed to fillet…
THIS is why Sandi doesn’t let me cut fish…because hers look THIS GOOD! (watch the video at bottom)
