The first few entries from the mere seven boats in a 157-boat field that fished in today's opening day northwester were of fish that have little chance of staying on the leaderboard -- but the last was a 75-pound wahoo on More Bills that has a good shot at holding up. In contrast to the recent White Marlin Open that produced record numbers of white marlin, there were few signs of billfish today.
(Saturday) Today we ran an open boat Fluke trip and it started off very slow due to the current being very strong where we were fishing. 8-27 EXTENDED FLUKE TRIP 6 AM TO 4 PM 3 SPOTS OPEN 8-28 MUDHOLE TRIP 5 AM TO 5 PM SPOTS OPEN EMAIL LADYMCHARTERSNJ GMAIL.
