The crew was down early Friday morning to scout out the blackfish grounds.We left in the dark in summer-like weather and arrived before day light to find a half dozen boats already there. We set up on a spot and the crew of Randy, "The Barker" and "The Legend" went to work right away landing a bunch of tog and some porgies too. Good fishing and good weather. Sunday our intentions were to repeat our good fortune, but when I arrived at the marina the wind was gusting and it was raining. It was hard to get a forecast with the media concentrating on the hurricane and they were calling for the rain to stop and the wind to come on in the afternoon. I checked with the crew and they decided not to go, which turned out to be a good decision as it is still raining. The "Legend" bolted to his car and all we saw were tail lights as he raced from the parking lot. I guess he had somewhere to go. We went home and put on the fireplace to take the chill off and get ready for football.
