OL: What's your typical day like?
JW: I'm usually up at 4 a.m. and at the boat an hour before our first trip at 6. I prep bait, rig up, greet customers, and sometimes sell trip tickets, hats, and T-shirts. It takes us 45 minutes to an hour to get to where we'll fish. When we're fishing, I untangle lines and net fish. On the way in, I cut and bag fillets. Once we're back in, I clean the boat and stow gear for the next trip. Some days during the peak of the season, we run three trips a day. During the summer months I sometimes work seven days a week, but that's by choice.
