My wife and two of her sisters wanted a day on the water today for fishing and site seeing. Knowing that cameras would be brought- I expected the trip to be fishing-light, and was right.
The groups rallied at the chosen hour (5 AM) but we’re delayed getting out of the house by puppy dog walks (yes- there’s a new addition to the English Springer Spaniel stable at our house), etc... One of the sisters and I launched the boat a little before 7 AM and picked the remainder of the crew up at our dock shortly thereafter.
Down river in search of working birds and fish we went. The usual spots didn’t look to be doing much so we opted for the cruise to the mouth of the harbor and a cruise around the islands Outer islands. Not much happening anywhere (other than many ubiquitous photos taken of lobstermen plying their trade). Clearly the Atlantic Ocean is the Dead Sea.
So back upriver on a site seeing tour we went. The site seeing ended up making the trip (though I did manage a few menhaden for a future trip). No sharks were noted on this trip. Photo credits to my sister-in-laws, Annie and Susie.
