And they're off!

Seiners slug it out in Sitka Sound. Johnny Rice photos

After days of waiting, the Sitka Sound sac roe herring fishery opened around 5 o'clock this afternoon.

Johnny Rice, a spotter pilot, passed along these kickin' photos.

In the image below, we can see a couple of seine boats offloading big catches to tenders.
