Interference charged in Sitka herring fishery

From the Alaska State Troopers:

Location: Sitka
Type: Interfering with commercial gear
On 4/7/12 Robert Haltiner, captain of the F/V Signe Lynn, a registered tender vessel participating in the 2012 Sitka sac roe herring fishery, was issued a summons by Sitka Wildlife Troopers to appear in Sitka District Court for interfering with commercial gear. Investigation revealed that during the third opening of the fishery, Haltiner attempted to block and interfere with a seine vessel's set.


  1. Anybody remember when he got corked near Craig?
    A gun was fired, the Coast Guard and Troopers
    were called and an assault rifle was seized.

    He's really mellowing in his old age.

    Bob, I still love that Football Head remark.

  2. Anyone remember the "Crab Louie" incident? That was long before the internet. If I remember correctly, he was being harrased by an ADF&G bozo and some crab was "accidently" dumped on the guy. Kinda funny!
