Conditions - Going to be a while before we have any kind of drifting conditions.
First Drift – Back where we fished yesterday, but we just do not move. Going to change it up, and maybe come back to it later after the tide change.
Second Drift – Not to bad. We made a move to where we would get the wind and current together, and we are picking away at the fish. Two people are 1 fish away from their limit.. The keeper ratio is probably around 3 to 1 today. Very good, but not as good as yesterday.
Third Drift – We are benefitting from a very good keeper ratio again here today. There is one limit, one person with 4, and three people with 3 keepers. Running up for a redux!
Fourth Drift – More of the same. It isn’t super beat them up fishing, but we do have a good pick going, and the majority are keepers. Unlike yesterday where they preferred bait, today the Jigs/Gulp is doing the trick!
Fifth Drift – Had to make a quick because of an outbound tug, but we did throw some more fish in the cooler, and put another limit in the books! The conditions are PERFECT!!! Running up to bang ‘em up again!
We had another good day of fishing. Unlike yesterday, today they wanted jigs and Gulp. We also benefited from a very good keeper ratio. There were 4 limits on the boat, and Sean Vitale won the pool with a 5 pound fluke.
Check back tomorrow for more live updates.
