Got an invite the other day from Dan K and the boys. Do I want to go up to New Hampshire for a fishing weekend? Ahhhh sounds good to me! So, they picked me up Firday afternoon and off we went. Took 5 hours to get to the hotel, 10 minutes from the boat. Nice restaurant accross the street and general store. Went out for dinner, had a few drinks, listened to the band and then back for an early wake-up call - 3am. Booked the first day for a 6-man charter consisting of Kev, Kevin R, Henry, Jeff, Dan and myself. We left at 5. Met a new Captain up there that they knew - Nate. One of the youngest captains I ever met that could run a boat like he did - just absolutely amazing captain! He had the anchor in the water, the parachute out to slow us down, fishing to help fill our bin, and helping out and gaffing the fish as they were coming up. Just amazing. It was exciting right form the gekko. We fished in about 250-300 feet when we jigged, we used 20 oz with a single teaser up top, either pink or purple worked the best. You would drop down, and sometimes, before you reach the bottom, you'll get a 30 lb. pollock slam you before you could lock the reel in gear. Just crazy! Everybody pulled their weight and we filled up that bin to the top by the end of the trip. But the coolest and most exciting thing was the 3 tuna run-offs that we weren't expecting. The last one Jeff had on for 25 minutes. We all thought, All right, sushi tonight! It ran out 275 yards of line like it was nothing. We pulled in our rods, cleared one side, the Captain got the harpoon ready, and 2 guys on gaff. Heading towards him, gained some line on him then he turned and came towards the boat. we figures, OK we got him now. then he dove straight down. It was sick! all the line that we got back, he ripped back out. then all of a sudden, we felt nothing - like we had lost him. that sneaky SOB was jetting up towards the boat to creat the slack on the line that eventually, he knew he'd be able to spit the hook. Smart fish! Jeff, I give extra kudos to - no one could have played 'em any better. We were all bummed. So when we went back, Dan knew another captain, Ralph and he invited us to a clam bake which turned out to be a seafood feast! Lobsters, clams, crabs, corn, potatoes, all steamed on fresh seaweeds on a flat grill. Just absolutely tremendous! What a day a what a night! we were all dead. My shoulder was killing me, i have to say. Next day, all 6 packs were sold out so we had to jump on one of their larger boats with Capt. Tory at the helm. Today was different - the wind was honking and the tide was wailing. But Dan still had a great in and they roped off the bow for us 6. There were a lot of tangles and it was very tough fishing, Dan caught a really nice pollock - about 35 lbs. but just was beaten out of the pool by a hair. We picked up larger pollocks and a few more Haddocks to go with the 10 bags of fillets we already had. What a trip, what an experience! We're all going back next year for sure! It's gonna be known as the Dan K Charter. The only thing that's tough up there is that everybody is a Boston Red Sox fan and NE Patriots fans. Here we are, all Yankee, Jets and Giants fans in enemy territory :) But the New York crowd led the way and taught these boys how to fish :) LOL! Now, I'm spending the day cleaning my staff and bagging fish with my wife. can't wait for tonight. we have 3 species to try - haddock, pollock and cusk heres a few pics from the trip keep em tight the Veteran
