Capt. Rich reported an excellent day of fluke and sea bass fishing. A lot of quality fish of both species. Plenty of fluke in the 4lb range with the biggest fish taken by longtime regular Peter Tu who took the top prize with a fine 8lb slab. Dan King easily limited out today and Dan also had a pile of big sea bass up to 5lbs. Capt. Ted and first mate Chris said a number of other anglers had five to seven nice keeper fluke apiece and upwards to an over a half dozen nice sea bass apiece. A good number of “nettable” sea bass today over 3lbs. Some slammer blue fish to ten pounds, one nice scup, and a surprising number of red hake to add some variety to the fluke and sea bass. The fellas noted that hi lo spros and whole squid were the best producers today. Capt. Rich looks forward to some fantastic weather tomorrow and more good fishing with the Gail Frances set to sail at 7am. A few pics of yesterday’s pool fish are provided courtesy of Roger.
The report from the Half Day was of quality fluke and big sea bass but not in great numbers due to wind against tide throughout the entirety of both outings. Some slammer sea bass to nearly 25 inches and 6lbs did come to land on the deck of the Lady Frances today with the biggest fluke of the day just a shade under 4lbs. A respectable number of the sea bass were well over 3lbs on both trips. A fair shake of shorts kept things from being too quiet. A few sea robins and skates as well. Next brace of half days are set for tomorrow at 8am and again at 1pm. We do expect the morning trip to be busier than the afternoon outing.
