Coveting early boat numbers

On a fishery that is likely to fish small, many of the competitors covet an early boat number that will allow them to get on the "juice" early. Fred Roumbanis is not among them. He believes that his place in the second flight gives him an advantage. "I believe the afternoon is the most critical time," he said. "That extra time could be two extra fish." He added that in 2009 he did not slow down enough to maximize his effectiveness but today's long day gives him an opportunity to rectify thay mistake.
