TULALIP, Wash. – For Tulalip Tribal fisherman Joe Hatch Sr, fishing is in his blood.  For 30 years he has fished the waters around Tulalip and  is passing down his line of work to his son Joe Hatch, Jr. On December 28th, both father and son were in good spirits at the Tulalip Marina as they worked on transporting the rebuilt motor that the F/V WinterHalter will be sporting when it carries in the next catch of geoduck, clams and halibut.
