Friday started with a slow pick at the striped bass and a try for fluke produced some nice ones with "Tugboat" Fred landing three keepers. Tom I. and the crew from NYC had a better striped bass bite on Saturday. The Sunday crew caught a couple of stripers before we switched to fluke. I tried many different spots but a cold water condition slowed the bite. Monday, the plan was to get on the striped bass early but we only caught a few. I had good flukers onboard, so we tried some different areas and found some nice fluke. Evelyn had a 5 1/2lber, Grumpy had a 5lb, "Mittens" Mike had a 5lb, the biggest of his three keepers and Ken "The Legend" lead the way with 6 1/2lb as the biggest of his three keepers. Things are looking up and the fluke fishing should only get better.
