Almost didn't sail today because of the low turn out but we bit the bullet and went . Thankfully fishing was better than previous trips landing keepers size fluke numbering into the teens along with good short action to boot. Clown shoes Steve was one shy of his limit and James Rampino won the pool with a healthy 7.9 lb fluke.
Sailed way east this morning in hopes of finding the fluke biomass and we did, but the only problem was most were 16.5 or 17 inches. We scraped together a catch of keeper fluke and and nice load of sea bass. Kelly Reily won the with a 5.1 pound fluke.
Yesterday we had the boys from Amtrack aboard. We had a hard north west wind, which kicked up some nice seas. The shorts were more prevalent than keepers, however we still managed a few. Bob Dylan won the pool.
Today we had the Carteret Elks aboard for day at sea. There was a solid roll from the east all day which made things interesting at time and prevented us from turning the corner and heading south. We pounded the grounds had a decent short bite at times and a better pick of keepers today.
