TJ was the hot hand today, but everyone got some nice fish and we ended the trip with 21 keeper fluke in the box to 6 pounds and plenty of shorts mixed in to keep it very interesting. We fished a few different spots today and the guys worked hard and put a limit of sea bass together including some really nice fish to nearly 5 pounds.
The conditions for fluking have been absolutely perfect before the tide change with the wind and tide together, and the fluke have been coming over the rail!Two angler, Jerzy Pytel and Jham tied for high hook with 4 keepers, and Mark McQuaid tied Mike Butler for the pool with a pair of 5 1 4 pound fluke.
Most spots we catch a couple, shorts and a nice keeper but can't repeat the drift so we move on. The keepers are still all nice fish from 3 to 7 pounds with not many 17 1 2 incher's this season, where did they all go Tried Ambrose a couple of times, no life yet with the exception of sharks, the flats didn't produce much and the beach has been dead!
We rescheduled our 30 hour overnight trip down to the Washington Canyon on Monday July 14th and this opened up Sunday July 13th for a day chunk, jig and troll trip. Great chance to take advantage of one of the few open boat trips we will be offering in July as we are pretty booked up with regular charters the rest of the month.
July 7, 2014 Monday report Today the fishing was better in the morning, with a good drift we were able to pull over the rail several keepers on each drift, as usual the short fluke kept you busy during the day. Tomorrow Tuesday is our Fluke Marathon fishing from 7 00 am to 4 00 pm.
