Captain Rob has worked hard and done his do diligence in honing in on the Pollock. He reports he is confident in the success this fall. His deep water trips also will continue with high expectations.
Capt John has done an excellent job on the Offshore trips to Cashes. The decision to go to Cashes has been nice with almost exacting results for the different species.
The NEW really distant trip to Georges Bank is getting more and more exciting (check out overnight fishing on the website www.yankeefleet.com). These trips allow us to get out of the Gulf of Maine regulations, with a size of 22 inches and no bag limit. We continue to talk to fishermen that have been there, getting intel and suggestions. The anticipation, and expectations are high. We are getting the boat ready and an added bonus of having a commercial grade vacuum package machine available to help keep what you catch longer and fresher.
Yankee Fleet believes strongly in the conservation of our fish and the waters they live. We also believe in the rights of individuals. It is unfortunate how the process of getting to a sustainable fisheries has been fooled by all the smokes and mirrors, and allowing it to come to this. We will continue to do our part.
