Really too bad we couldn’t keep fishing, fishing like this for so long is unbelievable. Next few days we’d be in port due to weather, but fishing like this two or three days a week into February would be amazing. Today’s trip is on the way home, and our last trip is tomorrow (Sunday).
This year the Lady Merrilee Ann will be hauled out for the winter for some “extra loving care” in the boatyard. The USCG requires this every other year for a dry dock hull inspection, so the crew will be busy in the boatyard through the winter keeping the “Queen of the Fleet” in tip-top shape for the spring (as they always do).
