We took the Old Oly out to Westport for one more tuna run yesterday. Arrived in plenty of time to load ice and get bait, but everyone was saying the tuna are 65 miles out. Since Old Oly only has an 80 gallon fuel capacity, we changed our plan, stopped in the Hungry Whale for some gear, and went bottom fishing instead.

    I have way too much time on my hands but I count 41 rockfish for a final count of 49 fish. I will come confiscate the extra fillets for you after you bread and fry them for me.

    Figured as much. Just giving you a hard time. Was very impressed with the haul! Does this mean no fried fillets though? :)
