John just completed his captains course and should be an official captain as soon as the CG processes the paperwork.
He is going to be doing some crosstraining, but will still be spending most of his time on the deck.
The tuna highway is starting to form, as you can see in this Terrafin shot.
The water is a little colder than last year, when they were around in late May.
I am predicting they show in the middle of June and as soon as we see 58 degree water, we will be headed west.
I can't wait for June.
