Had many of the Monday regulars out for the first time today so I knew we had to bust some butt and find the Fluke!Not many buck-tail fishermen on board today bait was the ticket, so It's hard to say if that would have been the better of the two choices.
Saw him hook up and the fish hardly moved off the bottom, when he did have it coming, the head shake and bend in his rod had the poor kids heart pounding, from the way the fish was acting I would have bet it would be at least 10-12 pounds, a few more cranks and we would have at least seen it but another good head shake and the fish was gone!!John Froelich Had two great fish including the pool winner at 8 pounds!
Will start working the channels tomorrow, with the last of the incoming we should have some good conditions to fish there.July normally starts to produce more fluke in many of the area's we have been fishing, I guess I have to follow my own advise and say "Patience" it will happen!!!
9 knots!Got the lead out and picked away on some nice keepers and plenty of shorts the first couple of hours. Most of the fish we have been catching the past couple of weeks have been on bait, so maybe things are going to change in that department.
East wind the past couple of days had the ocean very rolley, any place we fished beyond the hook didn't produce with the exception of some shorts and an odd keeper. Bob had the pool fish at 5 1 2 pounds until the last drift when Paul Mutte landed a very nice 7.
