JUST BEFORE THE STORM
Sometimes the fishing picks up as a storm approaches. On June 22, with a forecast of afternoon thunderstorms, the Pandion crew took a couple from Georgia out for their first striper trip in the Gulf of Maine. Conditions were perfect in the morning, and the anglers went 4 for 4 on schoolies. Conditions changed rapidly, however, and thunderclouds were massing as Pandion returned our guests to the Harbor. Shortly thereafter, the crew raced to our mooring as torrential rain and even some hail pelted down.
