Thurs 8/17 - 9 lbs of fluke

      On the morning trip we had some short action and then went to look for some keepers. Mindy who only comes a few times a year with us caught a nice 4 lbr. We went on to get a couple of more keepers and then tried a another area. Mindy then comes up with a nice 5 lber that ended up taking the pool.  We also caught a 4 .5 lber on the same drift. The afternoon trip was less eventful but  and less action but we did get keepers with less short action. Marty and Howard both got a keeper (sorry Paul) as well as a few others around the boat. The pool winner was caught by a guy who has not got a keeper this year but had his hopes up. Here are a few pics and thanks for looking in. We didn't make it out this morning with the lack of patrons and the afternoon is not looking good as its raining already down here.

Pics and update of last few days

     The fishing as far as short action is getting better at times but there is not a lot of keepers in the mix. Still getting a few every day and hoping more will show up. We will be hanging in there with the fluke until the end of fluke season on Sept 5, sailing every day, two trips at 8 AM and 1:30 PM. Thanks for looking in and here are some pics.

Sunday 8/13 Bill gets the triple crown

     With the missed fore cast on Saturday more fishermen turned out on Sunday. Not only more people but a lot more boats to contend with which I believe doesn't help the fishing. We did have a pick of short shorts that were not even close to being keepers. But we did end up with some keepers and had a seal swim by next to the boat, which we don't normally see this time of year. On the afternoon trip the we ended up with twice as many keepers, with Bill O Hara getting his third pool in a row with one of his two, way to go Bill (although they don't look too big in the pic). Here are few pics and thanks for looking in.

Fri/Sat 8/11 & 12 reports - oops

    I just noticed my last report was supposed to be Thursday 8/10 not Friday. We are still picking at some shorts and getting keepers in the mix but not the action we would like. Some areas we can only fish at certain times or the drift will be too fast or in the wrong direction, or the wind may hold us up for no drift. So please don't think we are saving the best for last when we get a better pick at the end of the trip. We are still running two trips every day for fluke thru Sept. 5, then switching to bottom fisihng(porgies,sea bass & blackfish) on the same schedule. Here are some pics and thanks for looking in.

Friday 8/10 Another beauty

    The weather was very nice, maybe too nice with slow drifting conditions but we did pick at shorts and a few keepers.  Towards the end of the morning tried an area that produced good action with shorts and some keepers mixed in.  We were all alone  for one drift but then the boats came. We still got a couple of more drifts in that made the day. On the afternoon trips there was a breeze so we had a decent drift but couldn't go where we left off since it was too fast. We still managed a pick of shorts with a keeper here and there. Thanks for looking in and here are a few pics.

Tues/Weds reports 8/8-9 Go Bill

    Didn't go out on Monday with the rainy weather but did on Tues. Cool temps and breeze called for sweat shirts in the morning and then t-shirts in the afternoon. Picked shorts and keepers with Big Steve getting his first keeper for the year and the pool. The afternoon trip was much nicer and the fishing again was better with  twice as many keepers. Wednesday morning was very nice but it got warm. Very slow drifting conditions made it tough and picked at shorts but the keepers were few and far between. On the afternoon trip it was much better again once the wind picked up and we got a drift. Bill O' Hara got his second pool in a row with one just shy of 6 lbs and we  had a lot more keepers than the morning. Still sailing two trips every day for fluke until the end of the fluke season on the 5 th of Sept. Here are some pics and thanks for looking in.
