Default Enough screwing around!

Finished all the glass work and paint today, new radio and antanae are installed, all trim wood has been varnished and the safety items tested tommorrow night the boat goes in, no more shore fishing until the fall, Tuesday night will be the first all nighter of the year... I'm tired of catching s, I've got eels and a new trolling motor and battery... its time to get it on!

Looks like your time-table correlates well to the weathermans forecast for improving weather conditions.

Got my boat in on Memorial Day. However, it has been sitting in its slip since then with the weekends being so rainy. In Maine the whole weekend was pretty much a washout. Whereas, in MA yesterday was OK according to my daughter.

Had thoughts of getting out for some fishing yesterday in Maine because the forecast was for drizzle but that mid-morning wind kicked up the seas something nasty. Not the conditions I want to go out in on my little red boat with only one short sea-trial under its belt so far this year.

Good luck with the launch and sea-trial Roc.

I'm never in much of a rush to be in before June 1, thats when all the good stuff starts happening, it all gets food at once, inshore cod and haddock and big bass, but as you said Tony the weather has been rotten to say the least, but the whale cod are close and I may run out for them right after work tomorrow, then fish the night for bass, still making my plan of attack, I'm not working On wednesday so I'm going fishing....

These fish are over gravel bottom, on the edge of mud.. 160' of water, most of my june cod and haddock are in 140-180'

Any rockplie with at least 100' has a shot at having cod on it, I've got them as shallow as 40' but most will be 140-180', as the water warms 260-300' becomes the norm...

get your chart out and look at the depths, running blind with fuel @ $3.50 a gallon is a fools errand, do a little homework, check out several spots on your charts, look for breaks in the bottom, rockpiles, sharp rises in the ocean floor, nearby wrecks if they exsist, write down the coordinates (lat-long) then at least you head out with a plan, once you find them fine tune the numbers and put them in a pemenant log, record time of tide, sea and weather conditions even if you dont get fish try again, I give a spot 3 tries before i write it off....
