Fish Monger Tues Fluke 7/14
Headed back to where we have been seeing better size fish and Keepers....
Had a nice North wind so thought it would be great conditions... NOT... had a current from the s se against the wind leaving us sliding at .2
We bounced around between rock pile for a slow pick of fluke All day... A keeper here a keeper there with few shorts mixed in but not that many... Had a couple of flurries but when ya went back you couldnt repeat it... Frustrating but we kept plugging away.
South wind came on a little but since it was now with the current the drift became very fast for a while... When it slowed down we boxed a few more...
We all thought Keith Had a doormat but it turned out to be a Nice BIG 23 LB MONKFISH...
By the end of the Long Day we managed putting 19 Keeper fluke in the box 2 seabass and a Monkfish...
Tough bite But everyone worked hard at it to put some fish in the Boat... Rich and Keith were da pullers with 4 or 5 keepers a piece,Smokey did well considering he only fished 2 hours and Thank you Pat for keeping the boys stomachs full with her great food. Fun Crew!!!
Got room This Thurs All Day Open Boat Fluke... Give a buzz to get out.
