    Was looking fishy out to Jefferies today, herring balls, corys, ganetts, petrels, few whales. The table is set, just waiting the guest of honor.

    That forcast was a little understated, it was snappy & rolling hard white most of the day. Arms are pretty tried tonight, as the A/P was not up for surfing home.

    Heard 3rd hand of a cocker getting landed by a Portland boat yesterday, pushing 800#

    Chatter on the radio last night was someone took one & dropped another. Rolling up on the haddock ridge this morning there was a boat doing the circle jerky but he lost him shortly after. Didnt see much under us, but were ground pounding up high & pretty quite on the vhf for 10 boats on the edge.

    Can't learn much from 10 boats, lessen their your friends. Or you see them doing circles. Thinkin you don't have to do many circles for Haddock. :)

    I made my first trip Saturday, got out in the dark, saw absolutely no sign. Even the birds seemed to know nothing interesting yet - at least where I was at.

    Bait was there and that's it, not even a suspicious scratch.

    Just a heads up to update your charts. There seems to be some new structure out there.......
