Fluke fishing in the ocean has been the best of the year recently, and doormats are finally becoming more common. Mike Holodinski of Hillsboro boated an 11 1 2-pounder that took the pool, but not before he got a scare when Paul Schduckalo caught a 10 1 2-pound doormat.
That started to slow up so we hit the ocean channels and they are finally holding some fish in our range for the half day trips. Unfortunately now we are going to have a few days of hard East North East winds that will keep us out of the ocean.
Don Jr. put on a clinic fishing in the stern also with Six nice fish and Sea Bass in the Box. Several other great fish around the boat along with the Big Sea Bass once again with June Sal combining for a nice rack of fish.

Capt. Ron Santee is on a roll with weekend doormat fluke on his Fishermen from Atlantic Highlands.
