PETERSBURG-AK This season was a bit of a let-down for herring gillnetters at Seymour canal off southern Admiralty Island. Catches dropped off dramatically after the first day of the fishery in late April and the opportunity for a second opening never panned out early this month. Fish and game decided to close the 2009 season last Thursday (may7th) after waiting several days for more fish to show up. Matt Lichtenstein spoke with Fish and Game about how things went.
