  Brent Robinson Brent Robinson has been fishing for salmon ever since his childhood days on Harstine Island in Puget Sound.  Burned out on boatyard fiberglass work, he bought a Salmon Hand Troll permit for Southeast Alaska in 2011 and moved to Ketchikan to learn the ropes.  This year, joined by his wife, Dianna Garfield Robinson, the pair decided it was time to find a better market for their beautiful, fresh Chinook and Coho salmon. This year they are hook-and-lining salmon into their boat out of the fresh ocean waters outside Ketchikan, and shipping them directly to market.
