Newburyport to Gloucester

OTW at 11:15am and headed south to Gloucester. Did not look like much was going on so we turned back and headed for Halibut point. Lots of birds but all were sitting idle.

Had one mini blitz off halibut but they went under too fast and we did not get a shot at them.

Back in front of PI we picked up a couple of small blues.
Then we noticed birds working- headed to the action, just a ways off shore. Found the water erupting with action.
Turns out it was tinker macs - manny, many, many of them.
Some were being chased by 7 whales working them into packed circles. But when you got on top of the macs you could see the problem.

Dogfish everywhere! I must have seen a thousand dog fish today. All chasing the tinker macs.

Thought I could get a blue or bass under the bait but could not find any.

Could have filled 10 freezers with all the macs out there. Hooked several with my deadly dick while casting into the action.

I think the fat lady is warming up for the Newburyport area.
