Big news of the day was the pool fish tipping the scales at just under 13lbs according to Capt. Cory on the 7am full day. Capt. Rich reported things were a bit better than yesterday with a great mix of fluke and sea bass although the next biggest fish was only in the 6-7lb range. Hi hooks had upwards to five keeper fluke apiece with about the same on the sea bass. Both bait rigs and spros were the ticket today although the big fish fell victim to what else but a spro although the type of spro and the angler who tamed the beast remain anonymous. A pic of the monster appears courtesy of Capt. Cory. Capt. Rich looks forward to another beautiful day on the water tomorrow with the Gail Frances set to sail at 7am.
Capt. Chris and Nicky reported the Furey Roofing charter was a great success with a great mix of nice fluke to 5lbs, countless shorts to keep things very busy including a drift that went one and one half miles catching all the way!! Some nice sea bass to 4.5lbs topped off the great catch of fluke. Meanwhile Capt. George reported the Jeff Nevrath Group enjoyed a nice day of fishing with a great mix of sea bass and good size fluke with the best sea bass just under 5lbs and the best fluke in the 6lb range. Still some prime summer dates available for charters so if interested in booking call the office for more details. Some basic chartering information for the Capt. Frances is available online on our web site.
Capt. Mike reported some nice fluke to 6lbs and some nice sea bass to 3lbs on the morning half day and plenty of shorts to keep things rolling right along.
