Capt. Mike reports the 7am full day trip today was nothing short once again of sensational. A relatively modest group of anglers put more than 125 nice keeper fluke onto the deck of the Gail Frances along around three dozen nice size sea bass. Biggest sea bass was easily 6lbs while the pool winning fluke honors went to John “Sandwich” Mag from Newington Ct who put a fine 9lb plus slab into the safety of the net and onto the deck of the Gail Frances. John like so many other anglers on board today easily had his full limit of good size keepers plus three nice sea bass and Capt. Mike reported that a good number of today’s keeper fluke were 4lbs or better. Next 7am full day sets sail aboard the Gail Frances tomorrow morning with Capt. Rich.
Capt. Chris reported the 8am full day trip also saw some great fishing today with Gil, longtime regular customer but known more commonly to those in his inner circle, as “The 1999 New England Fisherman of the Year!” and Gil demonstrated his fluke expertise putting five fine keepers in the boat including the pool winner which Capt. Chris said would easily go over 6lbs. Well done Gil! Ivan Franson from Ct had one of the year’s biggest sea bass with a fish that tipped the scales at 6.5lbs. The majority of the anglers aboard according to Capt. Chris had three to five nice fluke apiece to take home along with a sea bass or two. there were other hefty sea bass over 3lbs recorded on the Admiral Frances today. In addition to the fluke and sea bass, Capt. Chris reported a few nice porgies, one fine blue fish and plenty of shorts to keep the anglers busy at the rails. The drift was rather fast today with the fish readily chasing down baits but long leadered bait rigs the key today. Next 8am full day sets sail tomorrow morning on the Admiral Frances with Capt. Mike and first mate Capt. Matt.
