24th January 2009

We are now hauling our last lines from the Ross Sea grounds then this area will be closed at midnight on the 25th Jan until next season. Even at this stage of the season we still have scattered floes of ice work in.

Grover is driving while Tangi gives some advice as we ease past a large slab of ice that has drifted up from the south during the last 24 hours.

Chevy and Noel hauling and pushing ice away from the line as it comes aboard.  This photo was taken just before midnight last night with the sun still well above the horizon. That water is now -1.5 degrees C and it doesn’t take very long to freeze the fish once they are processed and put in the blast freezers.

    Hi to all and Nick

    Got that message re the car Nick but found out the cheapest Insurance you can get if you buy that model is $2000.00 a year…sucks eh…! but that series of Subaru’s in under 25’s gets hammered by the Insurance companies…let me know if there is anything else you want me to keep an eye on….. not long to go guys so hopefully you last few weeks are the best fish wise….bet your loving the US$ at the moment…dropped twice over the weekend and I think is .52 now… Still a bit quiet on the game fish front Nick so hopefully they are all saving them self for when you get home….KT says thanks for remembering her birthday and Sarah actually asked where you were the other day so 3 months in has just noticed you’re gone….she got back from parachute yesterday and slept for 18hrs….
