Left Bluepoints around 9am - turned on the VHF and heard a bit of a disgruntled exchange between an uninformed boater and a Lock contractor. -- " In other words - what you are saying - is I can't go fishing today ? " -- Lock operator : " There has been ample notifications - the locks are closed Mon to Fri ---- " Oh well -- Got to 8a about 10 am - put out freezer burned ballyhoos - My first mate and I didn't slay the Kings - but they were definately there ! Despite some light drags on some new gear - we only boated 4 kings out 10 good hits. After useing up the old baits - switched to frozen mullets I netted a couple months ago - only had one bite on them - so we had enough fish and were on our way in by 1 pm.
