Blake is a second
generation commercial fisherman, born and raised in the port
town of Astoria. Growing up he was always actively
involved with our boats and fisheries, gill netting, salmon
trolling, albacore tuna fishing, longlining for black cod
and halibut and dungeness crabbing. From an early age he was
always eager to learn about any aspect of the industry.
Among his certifications is that of Safety Instructor.
Today he skippers the F/V Evening Star for Dungeness crab,
black cod and halibut. He also runs the F/V Maverick for the
Quashnick's during tendering for salmon and herring, as well
as king crab. You may have seen him for seasons 1 through 3
of Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch.
