Holiday Weekend Report
Hurricane Arthur passed 150 miles off our coast, but did not effect us at all. The weather was about as nice as you could ask for, cool and calm. Saturday, I tried a variety of fishing areas and some were barren and some produced keepers. Anthony "The Barker" fished hard as he always does, and came up one shy of his limit but did have the 6lb. pool winner. Alan P. had two fluke over five pounds in his bag, and everyone had at least one nice keeper, except for the only angler to put BAIT on his hook all weekend. He shall remain nameless. (Hint- He used to drive a tugboat). Sunday started with a strong tide and as the norm for this season, we could not catch fish in the same spots we did the day before. A ride out to some spots that produced in the past paid off. We followed the tide up the bay and found plenty of hungry fluke. Jack put on a clinic fishing with a tiny jig-head on ten pound line, landing his limit as he was hooked up all afternoon. He also had a sea bass close to five pounds. Late in the day we had fast up and down fishing with no one around. About the time Ken the "aughh" Legend said to me that they were all shorts Roger landed his third keeper, the six pound pool winner. Once again, everyone went home with fish.
