Whale Show, Salmon no show at Duxbury bouy

Reports were that there were still salmon around so I gathered up a crew of the usual suspects, my son Pat, brother Randy, Mike G and Dangerous Potatos. We pushed off at 8:15 in punishing 72 degree 0 wind conditions.

We ran up the line and joined the fleet circling the buoy.

We had 5 rods out in 80-90 feet of water with  herring and anchovies. Bait was thick and dimpling the surface. Meter often blanked out with pelicans gulls and terns slamming the water.

Some nets flying, I saw maybe 15 fish netted on other boats.  Mike and Randy ran the gear agressively but we managed  3 drivebys and no fish. Obligingly a mama whale with jr in tow put on a show for us.

We pulled the plug around 4. Easy ride back while listening to the 1-0 Giants game on the radio.

Little did I know I would still be watching this game 5 hours later!
