Capt. Rich reported a great day of fluke fishing. Over 100 keepers hit the deck of the Gail Frances with two fish between 8 and 8.5lbs fighting it out for the pool and a nice pile of other fluke in the 4 to 7lb range. There were a half dozen or so limit catches and most of the other anglers aboard scored three to six good size keepers apiece to take home. Not quite as many out of season sea bass to throw back and also not nearly as many blue fish to battle today. The bait rigs today far out produced the spros and other bucktails. The drift was at a decent clip. It pays to be prepared to fish both bucktail set ups and bait rigs on the full day fluke boat. In fact rental rod set ups were as good as any other today. Capt. Rich looks forward to some more good fishing tomorrow with the Gail Frances set to sail at 7am.
Capt. Chris reported a fine morning of fishing despite pea soup fog and a slow drift. A great number of keepers, about half of which were between 4 and 7lbs hit the deck of the Admiral Frances this morning and anglers were kept very busy with short fluke and out of season sea bass and a big mess of sea robins. Monday will be here before you know it!! Both spros and bait rigs were effective today and Capt. Chris did it again with another double header of keepers taken on spros, that is twice in a week!! Way to go Capt. Chris! Two half days set for tomorrow with the first one setting sail at 8am on the Lady Frances and the next one setting sail on the Admiral Frances at 4pm.
