8/23 Merrill Lynch Crew Score on Fluke/Sea Bass
<p>Today we had on board a Crew from Merrill Lynch, Mike Sherman, Lance and John. Great weather and conditions greated us. Left the dock at 0700 and headed over to an area that had been holding weak fish. Had some reads but no takers. Packed in the Weak rigs and made a run for the first Fluke stop.
First stop yielded Shorts, Sea Robbins and Doggies. Made some adjustments, tried several differant drifts with the same results. Started headed to sticky bottom, but made a short stop on the way down. Again Shorts and Robbins.
Continued down south to the rough bottom. Was not long before Lance put the first keeper in the box. By now the drift was almost zero and no wind. Bounced around picking at Short and Keeper FLuke as well as Sea Bass. Made several differant stops on the grounds, donated some rigs and lead, but the boys battled through it putting Fluke and Sea Bass in the Box.
Good day on the water with some great guys.
