Madam Commissioner's Day Off

The Marine Fisheries Commission meeting for this week was cancelled due to the anticipated lack of quorum, now rescheduled for Aug. 30-Sept. 1. Anna has been "studying up" and was ready to go, but enjoyed her afternoon off.

Capt. Gene Wooster at Mobile East Marine is finishing up putting on my new powerhead, so I took her and Shamrock drum fishing in the skiff. No GPS and a marginally working depth finder, but shortly after sunset we got the right bite with a head shake at the end of the line. Pic to come.

The afternoon bite is very consistent, the morning bite will be improving after next week's full moon.
