Residents, visitors put dipnet fishery to use
Jim and Marie Bradford have lived in Kenai for over 45 years. Until Sunday, they had never been dipnetting. Their first attempt landed them 21 fish in a few hours at the mouth of the Kenai River.
"We're retired now, so we decided to try it," Marie Bradford, 62, said. "We're doing things we never got to do before because we always worked."
Sunday was a day full of dipnet rookies.
