Fantastic! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!Day Before Thanksgiving with Capt. Mike
Had another excellent trip on Mike's boat yesterday - fishing off Conn. and Fisher's Island on a breezy East End day.
First did the deeper thing for a bunch of keepers, and then over to the shallow jigging ground off Fisher's for more quality fishing. PLENTY of short action and a full boat limit for the four of us to 5lbs, plus the largest sea bass I've caught in at least 10 years - didn't weight him, but trust me, it was a monster. Now gutted and scaled, its waiting for Turkey Day festivities to end, so I can use the Asian steamed whole sea bass recipe from the "On The Water" website once again - it'll be a great switch-up from leftover turkey, believe me.
So that's it for Mike - his boat comes out next week after another successful charter season - and now we shift operations to my boat, heading West instead of East. Gotta say a weather prayer for some decent NY Bight sailing weather. Have a great Thanksgiving weekend everybody!
