Love those big Hali's !

Good news for the Northeast too ......Hali's are on the comeback in the nothern water (gulf of Maine)

More cattleboat hookups are being seen every year (spotty but more and more)

Those controlled fishing areas are paying off slowly but shurly .......

Would'nt it be nice to travel a few miles off Block and be able to take one of those. Yes One ! Get some summer Fluke and

Seabass on the way back in and maybe a striper . Your Freezer would be good for awhile :thumbsup:
