I first had a photo of Eastern Welder here in a post from almost 7 years ago. And I had the photo below all lined up back on the first day of the season, but I snapped it after my subject had left the frame. Oh well, I put this here to show what the salt pile looked like–all tarped–before the ice season began. Hundreds of thousands of tons of salt have moved in and out there since. The white hulled vessel is Dutch Girl. Here and here are more sixth boro fishing posts.
And here’s our subject. The photo above and below were taken on December 1, 2013.
And the rest of these I took this past Sunday.
It’s hard to believe the New York Bight can be so glassy smooth sometimes.
