This isn’t exactly a news flash, but we’ll say it anyway: August is one nasty hot month. The captains aren’t immune to it either, as they talk about it being so hot. How it is it? It’s so hot that the fish are fried when you catch ’em. It’s so hot that Scott’s neighbor has a chicken that’s laying omelettes. It’s so hot the birds are using oven mitts to pull worms out of the ground. It’s that hot.
