Nice work on the bugs! Related question - how’s your cholesterol fairing? I’ve always heard lobsters are high in cholesterol, but I’ve never dug into it enough to find out if it’s because of the animal itself or because of how it’s commonly prepared.

I kept in the general area but when the sun finally burned off that fog I was amazed that I was probably five hundred feet or more off. I guess when I was moving around, I mistook the sound of the ocean hitting the rocks and was actually moving parallel to the shore, not straight to it as I thought! I think I'm going to get a big bell and put it on the boat, one of my friends suggested that once. In the end, I only had two bugs in my mutiny bag, the surge was so bad and the vis wasn't getting better and I wasn't having any fun so I packed it in. Water temp dropped to 62 today, about degrees colder than earlier in the week! I'll be packing the 7mm next time.
