The temperatures have been much better than last winter, and we're hoping that translates to a good early start to tog fishing on April 1! With all that considered and an arctic blast coming in this weekend, we're going to haul the boat for winter layup and maintenance in order to be ready to go for the April 1st tog opener!

Fishing was slow to,,not good life and we only ended up with a handful of keeper blackfish,,a codfish and a pollock. .Winds were howling out of the Sw and seas got pretty dumpy. Stiil we had a big daily pool and the pool winner had his limit and a nice chunk of change. Pauly took home the seasonal. .Congrats Pauly!!!!!!!!!Blackfish season is closed as of today,,we start Codfishing from here on out. but tomorrow is canceled due to high winds and seas for tomorrow.
