filleting our 100 pounds
of fresh albacore tuna caught
off the coast of Washington.

This big sea lion was hanging around the docks
enjoying the morsels sent over the side of the
fishing boats on his behalf!

"And He said to them, "Cast the net on the right-hand side of the boat, and you will find a catch." They cast therefore, and then they were not able to haul it in because of the great number of fish."
John 21:6

We've been looking at chartering a boat for tuna fishing but have heard they have to go out around 80 miles to find them. How far out did you go. Home canned tuna is the best. Once you've had it the store bought kind are history in my book.

Yum! What a blessing to have a pantry full of wonderful tuna! :) We received a couple of jars of home-canned tuna last year...they were so good!


PS - No hurry on the have been very busy...I understand! :)

Wow, what a grand expedition and a pantry full of good eating. I've never had home-canned tuna, but I imagine it would be wonderful compared to store tuna. Love the pictures!

Interesting subject this week.
I would dearly love to throw scraps to the Sea Lion.

Dear Lady Farmer,

What a great way to stock up for the winter! We were just thinking of starting to fish some of the local lakes and streams here; great minds think alike!
