The only other time I have been to Cape Cod was to coach a high school football game. Off the bus onto the field then back on the bus. This time it was for training for certification to become a Dockside Monitor. The Dockside Monitor documents the offload of the fish at the dock to help assure the sector quota does not exceed catch limits per species. The training was thorough and interesting, I thought I knew my fish! I knew most but the subtle differences in several species of both Flounder and Skate was an eye opener. I stayed and studied in Falmouth while the instruction took place in Woods Hole. So after many exams,homework,studying and handling alot of dead fish I became certified. With all the study work load I didn't have much time for photography, the weather wasn't the best either.
