Pacific halibut... Of all the Northwest and Alaska fisheries, this one has the most tradition, the greatest mystique. Like few modern professions, it is an enterprise steeped in its own history. Halibut fishing along the North Pacific Coast began more than one hundred years ago, when the schooners Oscar and Hattie, Edward E. Webster and Molly Adams sailed ’round the horn from Massachusetts in search of the bounty of the last frontier. Amazingly, vessels built near the Turn of the Century remain viable competitors in the contemporary race for profits, and the fishing style, called longlining, is little changed since its inception more than fifty years ago. Now, hear the story from the lips of the longline pioneers. Thirty minutes. DVD-Video
