It means everything with fishing. Having the right tide and drift makes for a good catch. Too much wind, strong currents and high seas mess things up. Like I have been saying all season, it's the luck of the draw, you just have to be out on the right day when it all comes together. Friday was typical summer fluking, Jack had five nice fish and, other good anglers had none at all. Saturday Tom K. and friends and family had a fun day in the sun but the catch was dominated by shorts and sea robins. "Staten Island Tony" from Brooklyn was the star of the day catching the four pound pool winner and a twenty pound cow nosed ray. Sunday I returned to the exact same spot and we had the second best day of the season as far as the number of keepers in the box. The cooler was half full of three to five pounders. I would like to get back out there and will sail an open boat trip Wednesday. I think the conditions will be right.
