8/14 Fluking with US Naval Academy Mid-Shipman & Family
<p>Today we had the pleasure and Honor to have onboard Ryan Lynch a Mid-Shipman at the US Naval Academy with his Dad Art, Mom Donna and Brother Kyle. We started out at 0900 for a half day trip, weather and conditions where good for the adventure. Made it out to the area I wanted to fish, there was plenty of activity as far as other boats in the area, but not on the piece I wanted to fish.
Set up on the first drift and is was not long before we had action, couple of shorts and then Art boated the first keeper. Fished this piece until the tide dropped out boating 6 keepers between 17 1/2 and 21" amoung numerous shorts and Sea Robins. Once we lost the tide the bite died.
Made a short run to another area, we picked through some more shorts and Sea Robbins but no more keepers. Just about the time we were supposed to head in the skies opened up, so we made a be line for the dock.
Great day on the water with a fantastic family. Wish Ryan God's speed in his service to our nation.
