Tough Night
Encountered the worst conditions I faced all summer with a steady southeast wind against an outgoing tide. As a result, it was a tough bite. I was fortunate to land this one keeper to go along with just 4 shorts.

Almost A Triple Limit
Close to ideal drifting conditions as you can get (incoming tide with light northeast wind) made for a banner day of fluking. Boxed a solid #4 at the end of the first drift. Added two more to the box before the end of the second drift. Added a few shorts and another keeper (released) over the next two drifts. Bucktailed up a keeper (released) and short before there was a slight shift in the wind to the southeast which made for a slightly faster drift. Over the next few drifts I added 3 more keepers (all released), a few shorts, some sea robins and a big skate. Pink 4” GULP with bait was hot for me early then chartreuse. Not sure how many keeper fluke were caught but this is the total of the 6 others fishing around me. Note if they caught over the limit, they only kept their legal limit of 3;
6
5
3
2
1
0

I know of at least one other who caught 4 (again only keeping 3) and another 3 fluke limit both in the stern.

Hope to be back at it Sunday for magic hours.

Not To Be
Nailed this keeper fluke before we left the slip. Thought for sure at the very least I’d be able to add another once we left. Alas it was not to be as all I could muster up was about 10 shorts.

Nice Flukin’ Night
My son and and combined for 4 keepers tonight. I had my limit to 22.5”s that pulled the scale to #4.43-good enough to take the pool.

Just Missed
Missed the pool by 0.15 ounces. Caught on my 3rd cast of the day on a swim bait. Had one other bite on it and two on clams.

1st fish of 2018
After a long winter, this was my first catch of 2018 caught this past Saturday (I did go fishing the week before but missed my only two bites). This bass just barely missed being legal size. I caught one other short, one that just legal size and a nice 41” #28.7 pool winner.

1st Pool Winner Of 2018
Took the pool with this #28.7 striped bass last Saturday. When it first hit the bait it just pecked at it several times. I thought it picked me clean but after a long few seconds and a few more pecks, I set the hook. At first I thought it was another schoolie but then it kicked in the afterburners. I caught 3 other stripers (2 shorts and 1 keeper) for high hook honors.

Wife Comes Through
Even with the worst drifting conditions I've experienced all summer, my wife was able to land these 2 keepers and dropped 2 others all on the first drift. Only two other keepers were caught to go along with a dozen shorts and one legal weakfish for the entire boat. Best I could come with was 4 missed bites and a sand shark.

Blast From The Past
Just found this pictur from 13 years ago of my son and I with a spring time catch of winter flounder. This was about 2 weeks before my son's 9th birthday-ironically now at the age of 22 he is a mate on the same boat .

Look Who I Found
Ran into Capt. Blaq Sparrow tonight on the Misty Morn. As soon as he walked on the boat, I said to myself that I know him from somewhere and then when I saw his shirt it clicked. Fishing was slow tonight as only 5 keepers were boated. I had 2 shorts and I believe the good Captain had 1 short

TerryBWhat do you win if you win the pool?
LikeReply 1 year
SkolmannThe pool (which is optional) costs anywhere from $2-5 depending on the boat. Biggest (weight wise) fish caught of the targeted species wins the pool. Amount of winnings depends on the number of people who entered.

Limit plus 1
Had my limit of three fluke before the end of the second drift. Caught another keeper sized fluke which I released plus two shorts. Caught on the keepers on snapper bluefish which they were eating line candy. Caught a dozen snappers before we pulled out the slip and had a bite on everyone. At one point I was getting bites within seconds of the bait hitting the bottom.
