Friday, Evelyn and I hosted "Tugboat" Fred, Ken K., Cory, Cor-Cor, Bob B., and Ken "The Legend" for our first trip of the season. The bass bite was not what we hoped for, but the "Legend" suggested to me to try something different and we ended the day picking at some small stripers. Sunday started off with dense fog and we waited for it to lift before trying for fluke. We did not land any keepers, but we did throw eighteen fluke in the boat despite the cold water. A switch to bass produced a steady bite of 22 to 27 inch fish but Roger nailed a 17lb. striper to take the pool. It was nice to be on the water again, and the fishing is just getting started in our area, with better days ahead.
