Glassy seas greeted us on Stellwagen Bank this morning, in addition to yellow bands of thick pollen that ran for miles. The density of baitfish has continued to accumulate, and the fish finder showed schools stretching from the surface to the sea floor. Another four species day for us on the Miss Cape Ann (if you are only counting charismatic megafauna and ignoring all the fish and birds) minkes, fins, humpbacks, and more basking sharks. Shuffleboard and Hancock seem to be the official exemplars for the humpback population on Stellwagen thus far this season.
