A Day at Sea
1 - 25
Heading towards the open sea as the sun rises over the village.
The engine is warmed up and it is time to cruise.
Every mate’s job - cutting bait on the way to the fishing grounds ...
... and the never - ending task of rigging ballyhoo.
The first bites of the morning.
What exactly has Willie hooked?
Two gaffer dolphin near the boat.
“there are sharks out there!” (3 hammerheads)
The sharks have to eat too!
Where the Gulf Stream meets the Labrador Current.
A hungry shearwater eats the bait.
Fin meets Feather - p.s. that’s not Photoshopped
The Albatross II dolphin fishes in large beds of sargassum.
A nice wahoo provides a struggle.
That is a very nice wahoo indeed!
That dolphin will barely fit in the fish box among the yellowfins.
One of the many loggerhead turtles we see.
A large white marlin puts on a show next to the boat.
Sailfish on the wire!
This blue marlin is about to be released.
Mate Sumner unloads a wahoo at the dock.
Some one will eat well with all these dolphin and wahoo.
Nice yellowfin photo-op at the end of the day
“Let’s help show off this king mackerel, blackfin, barracuda, bluerunner, dolphin, wahoo and oceanic bonito catch.” What a variety!
Capt. Bryan’s great day of sailfishing.
A day at sea with the Albatross Fleet begins at dawn. Once off shore, the fishing is exciting, some of the best on the East Coast. At day's end you return to the docks with enough fish to feed family and friends many meals and with enough memories to last a life time.
