I just received my IGFA Captain's notification, so I am up to date on the requirements for properly submitting for a world record. They also have a great smart phone app that gives you the current world records for all species of fish, among many other things.
The Stripers are in strong. Mackerel are still here also, we've been jigging them up
along the South Shore. Stripers love them - so do the Tuna which we have been chasing around.
Seems to average out to about 4 fish a day caught around here according to my buyer which, although that may sound slow, that includes all days, and the weather has not been very cooperative lately. But the forecast is for a great week coming up and we will be out there.
Bill and I have decided to revisit our policy on sharing the proceeds of a saleable fish with the customer and we have come up with the following:
If a saleable fish is caught to be brought to market, the charter party will have a choice or either:
Get the charter for free,
30% of the sale of the fish.
This decision needs to be made before we reach a dock to offload, or you will get the charter for free. We don't know what it will bring until the buyers get a hold of it for their sampling.
It's a gamble, but so is fishing!
