Fishing Vessel St. Jude Ballard, WA

The Malleys are a family business based in Seattle. Joe Malley started out salmon trolling in Sitka, Alaska in 1978. From salmon trolling he moved into longlining, pursuing halibut, blackcod and Pacific cod around the Gulf of Alaska.

Presently Joe owns the 95-foot fishing vessel St. Jude, which trolls soley for Albacore tuna in the North and South Pacific.

Joe and his wife, Joyce, fished and lived aboard the St. Jude for 12 years until they started a family and decided to market their own catch.
