Re: Weather or not

While it seemed to be a late spring, the Mackerel appear to be early. Ospreys have been passing overhead with large ones in their talons, for a couple weeks. And fishermen line the public docks to harvest them. I watched a large school going up the river in the harbor. The above behavior and the large schools near the surface, is more a late August thing in my experience.

Water is still predictably cold outside the harbor. The lobstermen aren't complaining about a too early harvest(that kills them when warm water brings them into shore early - there's no market demand then)
