after an epic morning on Sat, I invited my Dad in from CT to join the action. He arrived in time for lights out and we were out the door at o'dark.

long & short: pogeys were harder to locate but we eventually loaded up. wind & seas were worse than forecasted by 5 knots and 1 foot but we made due. yesterday, I could do no wrong; today, I could do no right. nevertheless, the old man came thru and boated some nice fish to feed family and friends back home. damned fine day.

Nice fish. What was in the stomachs? Did you catch them all on live pogies or some artificials?

all on pogeys. shameless meat fishermen. I intended to fish big flies while my Dad livelined but the seas ruled that out. gut contents today were digesting pogeys and lobsters to 6".

Nice early Father's Day present.

Those fly tying lessons came in handy. --127-3-

touche' Ray... don't mention this braggin post to Steve Cook, he'll disown me! --125-3

right re: early Father's Day. I figure that the pogey boat is comin any day now to shut down this action, so, I wanted to make sure that my Dad got into it. Now, it'll take me some time to readjust his expectations back to schoolie fishin.

Do you think that the pogy boat will be able to clean them all out? It seems that they are everywhere this year and more of them in places the pogy boat can't get to.

Great post....you said Saturday was epic. Any details....pogies? Fly? Thanks.
