04 29 16 Tomorrow will be the last day to keep blackfish this spring before the season closes!!Sunday we resume sailing at 7 00 AM daily for striped bass until the opening day of the fluke season on Saturday, May 21!
Arrived at 2 pm for the outgoing tide, light SE wind and immediately got Into some action with big blues on a red head white body Polaris popper in the bowl area along north beach. I got up near False Rip by 3 pm to find the northern end of North Beach stacked with big blues that provided non-stop action from when I arrived up there at 3 pm until the tide went slack at 6 30 pm when the wild action finally petered out.
It started off slow with shorts and a few keepers coming up but by the afternoon, the blackfish bit good and we wound up with a decent catch. Today, we had good action on shorts but the keeper ratio was not there.
