Capt. Rich reported another great day of fishing aboard the 7am full day boat with another monster slab taken by regular customer Joe Noga from Pt. Washington,LI with a slab that tipped the scales at just under 12lbs after sitting unbled most of the day in the cooler. For those keeping track this is the 7th fish of this caliber so far this season. Would someone please catch a 15lbr to add another layer of excitement to a season unbelievably chock full of double digit fish. The 12lb slab was taken on a rig that consisted of a fluke ball with a trailer with a white fly and the big fluke took the white fly trailer tipped with just boat bait (squid and spearing). Joe also, like so many other anglers today easily had his limit of nice fluke. Next biggest fish today was just over 7lbs but first mates Chris and Ted reported there were many fish over 4lbs today. Sandra and Cyrus Tompkins from Hopewell Jct NY also had a great day with a full limit of nice fluke each plus a nice mess of good size sea bass. A nice turnout of angelrs aboard the Gail Frances today put more than 150 keeper fluke and 80 plus sea bass in the boat. Some of the sea bass were quite impressive with fish over 3lbs not all that uncommon but nothing over 4lbs. One blue fish and a few nice scup to round out the day’s catch. Due to the fast drift conditions today the bait rigs were far superior and if one could keep in contact with the bottom was the key to success. A small but spry Mahi ate a fluke bucktail today and will provide some lucky angler with an amazing meal a bit later on. Capt. Rich looks forward to more good fishing tomorrow with the Gail Frances set to sail at 7am. A couple pics of Joe’s awesome 12lb slab will be featured above today’s fishing report.
