It had been a great canyon fishing season. The Gulf Stream had spun off eddy after eddy of warm blue water. These eddies when they push up against the cooler, green North Atlantic produce sharp temperature edges that stack up baitfish. When these temperature edges move over the top of structure, especially the canyons along the 100 fathom curve, the action can become red hot.
It was Thursday, September 23, 2004 and my close friend Ed Lavelle called me early in the morning.
