Mike, et al.

Sorry for the gap here, but interesting things have been happening none the
less.


"PoeGo"

Locations are still in the same general location,although still moving
north and east.  This has put him in still deeper water, and it appears
that he is following some of the deep contours.  Over the next few days we
may see if this trend continues.

"Jersey"

I think when we last left "Jersey" it looked like she might come ashore in
mid coast Maine...WRONG...She moved away from the coast, going almost
straight east and moved around the south end of Nova Scotia.  She is just
south of Halifax right now and keeping (it appears) along the edge of the
coastal and deeper water contour.  If she keeps in this direction we may
see if she follows "PoeGo's" path north by next week.

"Bristol"

Still proving difficult to track, but it appears that she is keeping close
to shore and moving along the coast.  The most recent location puts her
close to or in the Bass River near Yarmouth Massachusetts.  If she goes far
into this river it could cause the tag to shut down (the tag is confused by
the fresh water and thinks it is "dry".  If this happens we will not be
able to track her until she leaves the river.
