Roger reported the 8am full day boat was very good for both fluke and sea bass. Biggest fluke 6lbs and biggest sea bass was close to 5lbs with several others between 3.5 and 4lbs. The fish were very spread out around the boat. Just about everyone left with some of both. Hi hooks had six and five keeper fluke respectively with hi hooks on the sea bass about the same. The first half of the day bait rigs and whole squid were hot and then the second half of the trip saw slower drift conditions and hi lo spros take over. It was a nice light crowd today with plenty of elbow room and the 8am full day is fishing the type of ground similar to that of the 7am boat but just much closer to home to ensure a nice healthy mix of fluke and big sea bass. There was also a scattering of blue fish from harbor size to true alligator size with Capt. George taming a mega blue fish beast in the upper teens!! The 8am fluke and sea bass trip will set sail tomorrow morning on the Admiral Frances with Capt. Matt who has been on a real hot streak as of late. Some pics today provided courtesy of Roger.
Capt. Rich from the 7am full day reported good fishing overall. Not all that many sea bass today but quite a lot of quality fluke although numbers varied wildly from angler to angler. There were at least a few limit catches and one angler who limited twice!! (orl)!! However there were other anglers who had hardly enough for dinner. Mike T from Narragansett had five nice fluke today to take home but three of them were jo fish of 5,6, and 7 pounds while Bruce from Mass, a longtime regular, had the day’s biggest fish with a fine 28 inch super thick slab that was close to yes, you are reading this correctly, 11lbs!! That is the kind of fluke that you would not want to trip over. Bruce tempted the beast with a whole smelt. The biggest scores for numbers of keepers were taken on the spro set ups today. Capt. Rich reported a few blue fish and big porgies and one keeper Striper to round out a good catch of fluke and some nice sea bass. Capt. Rich sets sail tomorrow morning at 7am aboard the Gail Frances.
