Having Two Net Reels On The Stern of The Midnight Sun means that if they tear up the net on the bottom of the ocean by snaring it on some jagged rocks and tearing a hole right into the belly of the net, they only have to set back with the net on the other net reel and can continue fishing. In the old days if a dragger “tore up” the net on their boat with a single net they would have to head for home and mend the net.
The Midnight Sun sure is a pretty boat. She always looks majestic and the Testaverde’s keep her maintained well.
Here she is getting fuel at the State Fish Pier.
