Only 20 tickets were left as of this morning for Saturday’s Canyon Runner Seminar at Capt. Bill’s in Bayshore from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. No tickets will be sold at the gate.

The $120 tickets include a full meal with carving stations as well as all the offshore fishing information that’s well worth the price. Call 732 272-4445 ASAP.

A gale warning goes up at 6 p.m. in NY/NJ Bight and runs through Tuesday morning. East winds of 20-25 knots plus gusts to 35 are in the forecast along with likely morning rain.

The weather is a lot better in Florida, and Vinny D’Anton reports he got into some snook yesterday morning while wading in Sarasota. MirrOlures were effective.

Kil Song reports that Chong Chae’s party had great tautog fishing Sunday out of Virginia as nine over 12 pounds were caught. The largest went 16, 17, 19 and 21 pounds. They were caught on Chae’s jigs and Song’s Black Hole Challenger Bank 701L rod.

An historic note to yesterday’s blog about tilefishing off Key West in 1975. That was long before modern braided lines that make it possible to drift in 600-foot depths. Mono is so stretchy that you can’t feel bottom in such depths, and the best line we had to use then was DuPont Dacron. Unfortunately, I didn’t record in my notes what we were fishing with that day.
