    I had the chance to run the Parker over to the Island on Sat afternoon to do some hoopin, so I took off and it turned out to be a very interesting trip. As I was getting ready to set some gear, Mr Seagull stopped by to supervise. I fed him an eight inch frozen mackerel and in a couple of minutes it was back for more.Ugh!

    I got the hoops in, trying some deeper areas than I have been fishing and it paid off with a bunch of very nice bugs that crawled well before the moon got too high. It was an awesome night, with the air warm and almost summer sultry and a few showers with big fat drops that reflected the light of the nearly full moon. It was the prettiest evening I’ve spent there in a long time. I finished up culling a good limit with many of the nicer ones coming from some deep spots…over 20 fathoms!!! I’ve had some divers sharing some info and they were right, but pulling the gear from that deep is a lot of work!!!

    The wind came up by morning and cut short my plans of fishing yellows. There was an amazing amount of bird life and bait off the East End, all the bonito you want for more hoop bait.

    Now…as to the other pics…they were from the last trip. We were holding up a few for pics when the boat rolled and Natalie let the big bug she was holding get too close and the rest was history. It grabbed, she shrieked and as any good captain should I came to the rescue of my crew. It took some serious concentration but I forced myself to focus on the task at hand to get everybody untangled and we all had a good laugh afterwards.

    Good Luck and Good Fishing
