Reminder: no pickup today
This is a reminder that there will be no pickup today as we gear up for the Fall season (which begins next week). Beau and Tony are on the water right now scouting out new spots for fall fishing in the Bay of Fundy. Beau just set his hooks and will haul them in shortly to see if he found a jackpot. Tony hauled his in a little while ago and came up with mostly dogfish, which he released. Both boats will spend the rest of the day finding fishing spots, so that when they head out next week they'll have a few new places to try.
If you have not already done so, have a look online at the new subscription options. Many people requested an "all-fillet" share option, so we have included it for the fall season. The other share options are the same, although they are cheaper to reflect that the fall season will consist of 6 deliveries rather than 8 like the summer. I have posted a one page information sheet about the fall season on our website. You can download it by clicking here. Please send the link around to friends, neighbors & co-workers to help spread the word about Off the Hook. When you renew your membership online, you will receive an automatic $10 discount as a returning member. We are also working on setting up a pickup site in Dartmouth and in Bedford. If these locations would be more convenient for you, please let me know.
I had a meeting on Monday with Beau, Tony & Orlie and they wanted to make sure that I passed on their thanks and appreciation for supporting Off the Hook for the summer season. Your support made a big difference, and made it possible for them to continue their traditional, sustainable way of fishing. As you know, many of the hook and line boats in the Province have been forced to stay tied up at the dock because they can not compete with the industrial dragger fleet. By supporting Off the Hook, you help insure that the fishermen get a fair price for their catch, and help demonstrate that hook and line remains a viable and sustainable fishing method.
On behalf of Beau, Orlie, Tony and their families, thanks for supporting Off the Hook.
