The 50th birthday celebration was great. My brother, sister in law and nephew drove up for the festivities. We had lobster on the lawn with friends and family Friday evening, including oysters brought by a friend who works at one of the local oyster farms. (they were part of a delicious stew for supper this week) On my birthday I was guided by my son on a smallmouth bass fishing trip. Spent the afternoon at an opening for an art show that was supposed to include a piece of my other son’s work.
On Saturday I’ll be 50 hard to imagine that I could be so old. The family has big plans. I’ve been told to take the day off and there are lots of secret phone calls going on so I’m sure it will be big. It is a delight to have made it to the point where I am happy doing what I do and do it well enough to be successful and have a great family to share it all.
Yes we have them; bluefish in Thomaston Harbor . Yesterday morning was a blast with a large school of 5 to 8 pound bluefish on the surface for an hour or so right after the turn of the tide. Clients have been catching them steadily for the last several days and I have only been cut by teeth once, so far so good. The blues seem to move the stripers into shallower water and make them a little more skittish.
