Yesterday mornings forcast was just too tempting to pass up. I through the gear in the boat and picked up Paul Higgins and we ran east of Chatham to try and get another fish on feathers before the long winter sets in. Incredibly we had fish busting on top early on and it lasted all day....I hooked up on the flyrod for a bit but pulled the hook. Setting up on the fish was tough because they were mainly on krill and not feeding agressively. When they switched to sandeels you could easily tell by their more agressive nature. Problem was they just would not form up and stay up long enough and were easily spooked by the boat. Eventually we broke out the popping and jigging rods and hooked 11 more fish. We kept one fish that succumed to the RONZ. Just a phenomeal day for so late in the year. Todays forcast is even better but I am steaking up this fish and getting the boat ready for possibly 2morrow....Hopefully they will blow the forcast as good as the blew it today!
