The Sitka Sound sac roe herring fishery opened for a third time Saturday, and seiners bagged 3,740 tons in a little over three hours.
State fishery managers now estimate a total of 13,776 tons have been taken so far this year.
That's less than half the preseason quota of 28,829 tons.
Not to worry, however.
The latest Department of Fish and Game update suggests plenty of herring are still in the area.
