David Rudolph and Jacky Baker are a couple of the best commercial fishermen around the Oregon coast. The two men get lucky and sign aboard the two-hundred-twenty-foot fishing vessel, the Edmund Fitzgerald II.
Sailing with a crew of ten, the ship sails through radioactive waters in the Pacific that had been carried by currents from the Fukushima nuclear accident in Japan. Using the latest and most sensitive Geiger counters available for underwater use, the captain of the Fitzgerald II is determined that his catch will be safe for human consumption.
After a day full of good catches, however, the good ship and crew encounter something they didn't expect.
Something in the water.
Inspired by the hit song by Gordon Lightfoot, this short story by T. M. Bilderback is full of thrilling sci-fi excitement!
