Fishing in Bristol Bay

Just talked to a city friend about Fishing in Bristol Bay Alaska. He wants to go up and work on one of the commercial seiners for herring. We were talking about it and he tells me that he thinks that living in one of the small towns like “King Salmon” would be right up his alley. He grew up on the East Coast and currently lives in Washington DC. I just can’t see how this could work out well for him.

He has never fished commercially, and he has never lived in a small or even midsized town. He has no job lined up and just thinks he will fly out there and make it happen.

Any locals from the area want to chime in? I just think the idea is terrible.
