The Last Round Up
We headed out on Wednesday looking for last licks, as fluke season will close after Sunday's trip. All the big boats headed way out to the old Ambrose Light area and we went back to the same grounds we fished the past few days. The blues are still around but did not school up in big bunches and were a little skittish in the flat calm weather but the fluke went insane. It was an up and down bite, a fish a cast, for over four ours. Only a few made it into the cooler but as one angler described it, "like catching bluegills in a pond. " I fished a ten pound spin outfit with a 1/2 ounce jig and had a bite on every cast. Lots of good fun on a "ten best " weather day and I can't wait to get one more chance to land the elusive "keeper" this weekend.
