Capt. Mike was very encouraged by what he saw today on the local fluke grounds. We checked out all the usual early season haunts along the south shore beaches finding a pick of fish everywhere with a couple spots producing some pretty steady action. Only problem was we would have liked to see more keepers. We did have a handful of nice keepers to 4lbs nonetheless with Dana from Canton getting a pair of fine keepers to take home and winning the pool. The water is still on the chilly side but the bait is here and the fishing will only continue to improve on a daily basis as the water slowly warms. Roger stayed very busy today with the tandem bait rig today and wound up with dinner and had most of his fish on the higher hook with no teaser, just bait. All in all most of the varied terminal tackle did seem to produce at least some shorts and in the morning before the tide change Roger and a few other fishermen noticed that some of the fluke were quite aggressive taking baits fished off the bottom. All in alll a lot of very good signs today. We sail for fluke tomorrow morning at 7am on the Lady Frances with Capt. Mike.
