WOW ....... What's that shiny stuff in that low spot in the picture? LIQUID WATER??? We don't have that in Minny-SOH-duh in December .... You got to chop a hole in the water here to catch them fishes, yet ..... eh?
Great post...Fog, compass and charts and from the looks of it no marine radar! By Jiminee, that there is some fine seamanship. Your making me miss living next to the water...So how did you prep the fish? They look tasty...
For those of us who inland flatlanders, what's a rock fish? They looked like strippers to me. The one on the right seemed full of eggs. Are the salties different? Personally, most likely because of inland lakes, I never keep a sow with eggs.
No roe this time of year.. They were full of bunkers (Menhaden) and had fat reserves that looked like white tubes a couple of inches wide inside their bodies. They feed heavy this time of year to build up those fat reserves.
