Hello from New England! We fish
off our 36' EndeavourCat. When we drift fish
for flounder and sea bass, we often notice other boats passing close by...they are checking on us; when they get close enough to see the fishing rods out, they go on their way. I tend not to stock the galley
with any meat and if we don't catch dinner, we eat beans (it helps that I like beans, but we rarely HAVE to eat them).
We are hoping Bertha stays on track and the offshore
swells dissipate by Friday. We are planning, if the weather
cooperates, to head
straight south from Narragansett Bay for an overnight at sea, trolling for yellowfin tuna. Our boat
motorsails very comfortably at 6 1/2 knots, perfect trolling speed. If the forecast
is less favorable, we will try for other tuna species closer to shore.
I am a longtime sailor; Tim loves to fish. We try to do both as much as possible.
