Ripping up and the Full Moon
The full blue moon on July 31st made the sardines go a little bonkers. The coastal currents increase in velocity adding stronger tide rips. The schools of sardines get flighty and hard to catch. The fleet has been 50% successful in rounding up boatloads of sardines. Steve & the F/V Papa George were in a set yesterday when a tide rip caused the web near the stern to fly horizontally thereby catching in the skiff's prop. The result was a big hole, but nonetheless, they brought in 15 tons last night. Today was a day of patching and piecing in new web.
I'm hoping to ice up a hundred or so sardines on Friday morning for my friends back in Seattle.
