holy mackerel

The air has been thick the last few days.  The thunderstorms build late afternoon, followed by cooler, drier air.  We are in the summer weather pattern, for which I'm very glad.  There's a decent forecast for sailing on Sunday.

Down at a fish house the change in seasons was obvious too, with more species of fish coming into the pound nets.  Menhaden, of course, and roundheads, butterfish, grey trout, ribbon fish and even a boston mackerel (the fish with the blue back and black stripers above) which should have been here in late winter or early spring but this one did not get the word.

Softshells were available and three or four fish houses out near the beach, we should be coming into peak season.  What's on your holiday menu?
