Buddy of mine spent time down there and they used to use steel cables attached to tractors to fish with. Leave the line down for a few hours and haul up tons of fish. Used them all for science.
Im actually thinking about going down and doing a summer stint at McMurdo Station myself

Doing what?

I have some good gouge....

I went out to an ice fishing hut in McMurdo with a couple of friends and a bottle or tequila.
We caught a couple of Antarctic Cod.
They were part of the "fish fry".
Fresh cod steak!

He was working with the National Science Foundation. Who knows what studies they were doing. Got the privilage through the Boy Scouts. One Eagle Scout is picked every 2 years. He got to do all sorts of neat shit.
Next time he just went down there to work, wintered over and did electrical

It's a Ling Cod I believe.

It's more than likely too late to get a job with Raytheon Polar Services.
Let me know if you're interested and I'll hook you up with "the right people".

Check out this page very closely before you make a decision.

Pay close attention to the letters and Boozy the Clown sections....

Antarctic Cod.

Mawson's Cod
Antarctic Cod

Despite its name, the Antarctic Cod is quite unrelated to the true Cod, it is not even in the same order, being classified as a perciform rather than a gadiform.

Dissostichus mawsoni

The Antarctic Cod (Dissostichus mawsoni), also known as Mawson's cod, is a fish famous for producing antifreeze protein.
Antifreeze proteins or Antifreeze glycoproteins (AFGPs) are produced as a specialised adaptation by certain fish living at high latitudes.

The frigid seas of the polar regions both of the Antarctic and the Arctic have water temperatures below freezing. For example the in the Antarctic seas, temperatures between -1 and -4 degrees Celsius are common, well below freezing point. The water temperature varies very little from season to season and the waters are often filled with ice. Without specialised adaptation, fishes would be frozen to death because of high water content of blood and flesh.

These large sluggish fich can be found swimming on the sea bottom, particulalry near the shallow water on the coast.
Fully grown, these greyish fish are among the biggest in the Antarctic, at least 5 feet long and weiging in between 40 -200 lbs.
When eaten, they have been described as oily and tasty.

I'll bet the gun laws are pretty good down in Antarctica, too.

What made you go down there?
Link Posted: 10/14/2004 6:34:02 PM EST
Yeah, that isn't a ling cod. Those are black-colored.

yeah and you would have to cope with the Kiwis while staying in NZ....

The C-130, C-141, C-5, C-17's are not "cramped" by any means.

My buddy had pics from inside the c-141 and they look cramped as hell. Maybe it was a fluke, hopefully they arent stuffed in all the time like that
Link Posted: 10/14/2004 10:24:25 PM EST
Oh yes, if you are going down as science or support then you are in a cattle car.

I was a Loadmaster on Navy LC-130's, I never had a problem with being crowded.

It's only twice a year, if you go by jet it's about a four and a half hour trip there and a five hour trip back depending on the winds.
By C-130 it can be an 8 hour trip there and up to a 10 hour trip back....

If you go down during WinFly it's not that bad, if you go down after main body open up it's not that bad.

The C-17 has passenger pallets they use now, vice the jump seats of the C-5/141/130.

C-141


Upper deck C-5

Which one are you talking about hitting?

The chick with the Fish? At the south pole? Hellyea I'd hit it. Proabably not too many hotties there, let alone ones that fish. Hmmm I wonder how big her boat is.

Nice looking tuna!

And the fish ain't bad either.
Link Posted: 10/15/2004 12:43:52 AM EST
No fish at the South Pole - It sits on almost 10,000 feet of snow and ice.
That would be a hell of an ice hole to drill, except it would be in vain since it's dirt that's under there.
