Happy New Year!

It's been a awhile since I posted on my blog and my apologies for that.  The season get's so busy towards the end with trips and the onslaught of the giant fishery that my posting suffers.
Here is a recap of what went down after August.
Bluefin fishing was slow but the Albie fishing was very HOT!  I normally do not fish for Albies due to their proximity to my port but this year I made an exception and did many Albie trips in Buzzards Bay.  I must say we had a GREAT time fishing for them and plan to do more of it next season!   The weather was poor in October and we did not get out much to chase tuna around like we were hoping.  On the days I could get out, I spent some time *on the ball* chunking for giants.  We had them in the slick many times but just could not get them to EAT....Eventually it was time to hang it up and get on with the fall around here and the many neglected household things that do not get taken care of during fishing season.
It was a great season in all and the new boat gave me very little problems.  The new SIMRAD NSE electronics gave me the edge all season long and I highly recommend their new products!
As we head into the New Year, I start to book trips in earnest for the coming season.  Alot of my repeats have already secured their dates for next year and I encourage those of you that haven't to do so.
I hope 2012 is good to you all and I look forward to fishing with you this season.
