We went right back to the fishing grounds and did not find the life like the past few trips. The bait was there but the fish were gone. Mike M. threw a keeper in the boat but then it was only a few sea robins and shorts. The east wind against the ebb tide made the drift a little snappy, so I headed to sheltered waters. We found a mix of shorts, some sea bass and a couple of keepers as the fluke season ended with a whimper.
