Does anyone have favorite/active  HF frequencies for listening to the fishing trawlers etc on HF SSB?
Tnx,

Sorry, the last time I heard some ships using SSB on the marine frequencies most were speaking foreign languages.  Those using english were literally swearing like sailors with every other word starting with F. Otherwise everything they said was boring and not worth searching for.

The only 'fishermen' I hear are either Spanish, Malay, and sometimes Japanese or Korean guys talking either on the marine HF channels, or illegally just below the 40 meter CW band.

On the East coast of the US a lot of guys hear Brazilian Portuguese transmissions on the same frequencies below the 40 meter CW band. Some of those may also be fishermen.

I used to listen to captains of Mississippi barge towing boats, ship to shore, (very interesting, sometimes quite personal) Coast guard making drug busts,
military traffic during the cold war(scary at times). Monitor Times used to have articles on boats, planes and trains. Unfortunately no longer available. Spectrum Monitor is only available on line. Almost all traffic now is via satellite and all I can find is seaway and merchant traffic only on VHF. Limited range on those frequencies.
