From St. Peters to Liscomb – Day 58

This is St. Peters Marina on Cape Breton Island. We spent the night here and are now going to head southwest toward Liscombe Lodge at the head of a small fjord in Nova Scotia.

The weather was terrific...very calm for the ocean along the NS coast. We slowed down here as we passed a sailboat that was heading ENE.

After passing small islands off the point of land just east of the town of Canso, We swung the boat to the south and west and started running along the Nova Scotia coast. Twenty miles later we pulled in close to Whithead Island with lighthouse and many very tiny islands that were the summer home of seals and sea birds.

 We stopped over an underwater cone shaped rock that rose from 150 feet to 60 feet. A great place for fish. I tried jigging and started catching little Pollack immediately. They are related to cod fish.

A very large school of Pollack along the bottom. A view that will get a fisherman's blood pressure going for sure!
