I am posting on behalf of Carlos Pedro, who has organized a pelagic out of Galilee, RI. Message below:
"A day Pelagic has been scheduled with the Frances Fleet for Saturday, June 11, 2016.
It will depart the Frances Fleet Dock out of Galilee, RI onboard one of their larger fishing boats
at 7 AM and return at 3:30 PM. The trip will take us out thru Mud Hole to Coxes Ledge
and back thru the Cod Fishing grounds southeast of Block Island. The cost of the trip for 32 of us
will be $95 each. This includes a 10% tip for the crew.
Birds during this time should include Great, Cory's, Sooty and Manx Shearwaters, Wilson's Storm-petrel.
Past trips in early June have usually produced all four Shearwaters and occasionally Red-necked Phalarope,
Pomarine Jaeger, Parasitic Jaeger, Long-tailed Jaeger, Northern Fulmar and South Polar Skua.
Boat Information and directions to the Dock can be obtained by Googling
'Frances Fleet". Sightings on past trips can be found at Paul Letoile's Website
If you are interested please e-mail me at dcpedro at cox.net as soon as possible to
reserve your spot. The trip is limited to 40 participants.
Thanks for making these trips possible.
Carlos Pedro "
