We fished with the rest of the fleet all day and had a couple of fish each drift but certainly not enough to make us happy. There will be a gusty easterly wind tomorrow AGAINST the outgoing tide giving us a snotty ocean with no drift most of the day and we will not waste your time or ours hiding in our bay just to get the day in.
Jim, from Staten Island started it off with the first fish of the day at 6 pounds and the lead for the pool. 5 Minutes later a 6 1 2 then the big one of the day at 8 pounds caught by Jose Mocreia, Old Bridge, N. J. Brett fishing in the bow had 2 fish both over 5 pounds and Richie fishing in the stern had a beautiful 7 pounder.
We fished for fluke for the first half of the day, but after fishing a number of spots from shallow to deep, it just wasn't happening for us or anyone else. It pains me to say it but judging from the number of aggressively biting little fish and lack of larger keeper sized fish, I would say the recent winds have pushed a large number of the keeper fluke beyond our grasp.
drift and a decent crowd aboard, every thing was in place for a good day of fluke fishing. Too, bad the fluke did not think so, they were not cooperating today, it was a slow day of fishing, even the active short flatties took a rest today.
