Holiday Weekend Highlites
It was a great weekend on the water and the fluke were biting. Friday, the same all-star fluke crew from last week came out again and went home with fillets. A nice mess of keepers covered the bottom of the cooler despite one of the best flukers on board having an off day, only catching shorts and talking to himself. Grumpy had the largest at 5lbs. and "The Legend" took the pool. Skip and the crew from HUMC had a happy Fourth on the fluke grounds, catching many shorts and enough keepers for some good dinners. Sunday was a beautiful summer day, and we found fluke in some spots we tried for the first time this year. The good news is the quality keepers are showing up, the jumbo size that fill the fillet bags. Evelyn had a 7.6lb, Rebecca landed a 6lb. and Cathy ended the day with a 4.75lb to add to all the others in the cooler. Roger caught a four-spot flounder (google it or look it up for you old timers) and after I explained to everyone what it was and pointed out the differences from other fish, he dropped down again to catch another one! We usually catch four spots offshore ling fishing, and never in any amount, but never in my many years on the water did I ever see anyone catch two in a row. That Roger is just a special guy.
