First day of fishing
The Tag-A-Giant team is in NC now fishing aboard the F/V Sensation with Captain Dale Britt and Mate C.R. The TAG team, led by Dr. Andre Boustany and Rob Schallert, along with Luis Rodriguez and Jake Nogueira from Stanford, spent their first day on the water. With the commercial season in full swing, over 150 boats are working the waters close to shore in search of bluefin. Despite good weather and a large fleet of boats, only 6 fish were boated today (all by commercial boats), and the tag team did not hook one! Some stormy weather is approaching but the team hopes to get out early tomorrow to find the first fish of 2007.
