    Doing it. Out here bobbing on the hook, playing the waiting game. Beautiful day. Chatter is promising and marked while setting the anchor. Even got my lucky belt buckle on.

    Any luck out there? Soaked for 5 hours on Thursday, what a day. Had a few marks but not takers. Saw goose hummock and someone else from green harbor had pretty large fish. Reading the latest catch update it looks like there is still nearly 20 mt available in he quota for November, I’m keeping my eye out for another opening before thanksgiving.

    We just had that one mark while setting the anchor. Would have loved to have been there for sun up but tough rousting a crew with just 7 hours notice on a weekday..... Unfortunately a hard deadline at work kept me off the water for the last 2 days. Already got 1st week of Dec penciled in as unavailable, hopefully they are still around & bitey

    Good luck to those that get out today. Green with envy watching this fishy sunrise while stuck up river babysitting a gyp ship. Try and leave at least 1 out there for me Thursday.
