Just Some Thoughts,

I did well in Lowes the other day. I needed some throw away brushes for fiberglass work and only spent forty three dollars. They didn't have the sanding discs I wanted and spent another twenty at Home Depot. Typical spring boat yard, some warm nice days and some rain and snow.  Baseball starts soon. Yesterday Tanaka gave up seven runs on nine hits in four innings and Girardi said he looks good for opening day. One thing I've learned watching MLB network this spring is that we are spoiled with the Yankees and Mets announcers. All the others stink and some are really bad, you don't even know what they are talking about. On the fishery front, fluke rules will be the same as last year, but the NY geniuses are looking for a fifteen inch sea bass. I can't wait to get out of here.

Lots of Life

The bay is loaded with bunker. All the big bunker that came in last fall never left the bay. Yesterday we watched the guys on the 69th street pier snag big bunkers on every cast. The bass and blues (and fluke) may show up early this year.

Spring is in the Air

The past two weeks have been very busy and exciting for us. The warm weather makes you think of the days ahead and we are getting things ready in the boat yard. We are looking forward to seeing all our fishing friends soon. In between all the chores, we snuck out to some of my favorite trout holes and caught a few nice rainbows that held over from last fall's stocking.

Giant Blackfish

Our friend Capt. Howard DiCicco of the Sea Horse landed a 22lb.13oz. blackfish aboard the Big Mohawk with Capt. Steve at the helm. Congratulations to both of them.
