This Weekend's Catch for 11/13/09 - 11/15/09

Sorry we haven't updated for a few weekends! It's just slipped our minds lately, but we're still open! Just FYI - we close a little earlier now due to the time change (between 5:30 & 6pm) but we're hoping to remain open through the third weekend in December. Now is a good time to start buying things to store in your freezer to last you through our off season!
