Drove to Falmouth harbor at 3:00 am from home in New Hampshire. Working with a good friend of mine from 6:00 am to 9:00 upside down in the bilge and finally the electonic problem was solved on the Handshake. Josh Lincoln joined us and we set sail for the Cape Cod canal. What a beautiful ride up the Stellwagen bank with a tall wind pushing along nicely.  We stopped at three spots with great success and caught a lot of cod. The day was long for all with arival back home at 11:00 pm another 20 hr day. Fishing charters look good in the next two weeks out of Gloucester. Then back to Falmouth were I am anticipating a great striped bass season starting early next month. Word on the street is that the squid are already in on the south side of Cape Cod.
