A Winter Fishing Trip
The weather let up for a day and allowed us to make a trip on the J II. It was good to see a bunch of old friends. On board were mates Ken and Jimmy, Capt Steve, Paul A.,Paul from the White Star,Nick from the Sea Pigeon, and Tim D. an old Pioneer II regular. Lots of fun and laughs and old stories. A little choppy in the AM and then a nice calm day with dolphins around the boat. About thirty cod came aboard along with a dozen nice pollock, the biggest over twenty pounds. Not many ling but they were big old fashion kind. Evelyn and I will be enjoying our cod dinners this weekend. Mike L. went home with a nice bag of ling and many lessons learned about offshore fishing in the winter.
