Say hi to Charlie for me. Looks like I'm a land lubber for the second season in a row. :(

This year is the first year in awhile I haven't seen them on my first trip out groundfishing, similarly no porbeagles which typically I see lots of, and similarly very little mackeral - but that just means it wasn't so hot on the little 9 square mile area that's 4 miles from land that I like to groundfish in.

With the 1st falling on a Thursday I took Friday off - if I've got crew and we get the weather I'll give it a shot, if not I'll try to bum a ride, if nobody I know is going I've got 3 boats and 2 out of them have a list and one a very long list so I'll keep busy with that, maybe beat on the stripers, and shoot for giving the tuna hell a day over the weekend.

Won't be targeting for a bit. But put the heavy artillery onboard last night, just incase we see something favorable during ground pounding trips this weekend.

Very promising out there, no marks or bust'in. But all the signs are there & the table is set. Did deploy for 1 drift and picked up a pup porbeagle who could bearly get the balloon down. If nothing gets booked for next Sunday, think I'll have give it a serious shot. The wife is gonna be pissed.....

Heard a good percentage of them may be in an eddie east of Georges waiting for the water temp to head into the bay. Couple came out of the Hudson, two were taken by harpoon on Stellwagen. Who will be next?
