A Busy Week
Thursday's fishing was good for Tom T. and family but keeping was poor. Close to a hundred fluke were landed but we only kept a few. Friday we took a long ride and fished in a fleet of a hundred boats. "Tugboat" Fred and the crew from West Milford had a nice day, with Steve taking the pool and hi- hook. Saturday we took the ride again, only to find more boats and a lot of shorts. I left the area and fished some rocks and wrecks to pick some keepers and stopped on the traditional fishing grounds on the way home to make a catch. Everyone had some nice fish, "The Barker" bagged four and our old friend Tommy O. had a 5lb. to take the pool. Sunday started with a poor forecast and the early boats reported a rough ocean. We stayed on the local grounds and had it all to ourselves. Action all day with shorts and enough nice keepers to fill the bags. Jack's 6lb. was the biggest of his four keepers and took the pool. The best news is we caught our first few keepers of the year on the "Pioneer Banks". It looks like the new herd has moved in, now is the time to get out there and catch some fluke!
