The end of summer...

Saturday was the last day of summer and Tom K., Keith, Larry, Paul, Maz, and "Staten Island" Tony had a fun day on the fluke grounds. I stopped in the bay where we have been fishing and found it devoid of life.  The forecast was for winds gusting to 25 knots and I was reluctant to run outside but we did and were greeted with working birds over schools of bait. The guys had fun catching blues and a few nice fluke and we got the day in before the wind came around noon time. Sunday was the first day of fall and it felt like it. I ran out to the ledge with the intentions of staying there until the NW wind forced us into sheltered waters. Loads of life and not another boat in sight. We caught blues, weaks, hickory shad, sea robins of the biggest size and FLUKE. Mike M. had a limit of nice fluke, Ken the legend had a couple up to five pounds and Big Tom also had a couple along with all the other stuff. We left the grounds at 1:40 with a cooler full of fish.
