FISHERMEN/Then the Fog lifted!! 4/21/12
<p>Started out the morning in pea soup fog. Fished the clams with a slow one, one pick. Couple keepers, Couple shorts. Knew after the tide change it would get ugly so we left the area and took a bit of a ride.
Still had the fog so we anchored again waiting for better weather. At 11:30 the fog lifted, gannets were hitting the water in several area's and the rush was on to get on them!!
Had a couple shots but it was tough to keep up with them as they were moving fast. Worked away from the traffic and found better action on some beautifull fish.
High hook had 4, Couple limits, a bunch of singles and some guys with none as it certainly wasn't easy fishing.
Had the first blues of the season also. Nice pics from todays catch....
Shaping up in the AM as I think the worst will be late in the afternoon on the weather. Will see how it goes.
