Not this year though. Looks like we’re turning the corner on this COVID nightmare, we can only hope.
On a sad note, a dear friend, more like family, passed away Tuesday after a courageous three year battle with cancer. Dean Tsonas Sr passed peacefully with family by his side. Dean grew up at Eastmans, crewing, eating my mom’s amazing dinners, then Capt for many years before leaving to work in the commercial sector, which he saw in its heyday and in its dramatic decline. He was very successful, driven and disciplined in that endeavor and everything he did. He taught me many lessons which I carried with me even today. I was his crew, both on the party boats and on his commercial boat at certain times in my life. He passed away too young leaving his wife Pat of 50 years and his twins Dean Jr and Kristen and their families and his grandchildren. He will be greatly missed, his morning visits to the tackle shop right up to recently will leave a void in the week. Our love and condolences to Pat and the kids. RIP Service at Remicks in Hampton, Thursday the 22 at 5-7 pm.
We are in port tomorrow due to the storm and as mentioned, Saturday will depend on the progression of the storm. If your coming from NY or NJ, I’ll give advice early tomorrow morning, if local the final call will be 4pm tomorrow. 1530 Fish report. Excellent. Marathon and six packs limit of Haddock and lots of Reds( big Haddock too, lunkers) The LAM( all day boat) had several with Haddock limits but everyone had 6-10 with lots of Reds to go with them. Marathon was a private Fishark charter.
