6/16 Open Boat Fluking
<p>Ran an open boat trip today and had to great couples onboard, Aaron and Michele and James and Chloe. Weather was perfect but conditions were not the best for Fluking. Ran to first spot and did a caouple short drifts with only a Robbin to show. Changed locations and the action picked up. Started pulling up the Flatties, first keeper was Chloe's 18" fish. Played catch and release with some shorts before Michele slammed a healthy 5 lber into the fish box. Pretty much all the action was shorts, but poles were bending. Wind came up again and the bite shut off. The girls outfished the guys 3-1, had the fisrt and biggest keepers.
A great day with 2 great couples, lots of laughs. Dispite the lack of keepers, was a fantastic trip!!!!!!!!
