If you are looking into coming out on one of our evening trips please look at our schedule because we have some private charters coming up. These charters will only affect the evening trips.
Conditions – Wind against tide to begin the trip.
We pulled up on the Reach to start the morning and caught some shorts and one keeper landed by Ken Legend. We have no movement at all, but there are some fish here. We are going to change the area and head east a good ways. Might come back to this after the tide change.
We made a 3 hour drift out in the deep blue sea and hammered away at the fluke. Running up for another.
The fishing today was excellent. Catching keepers was another story. We made our first drift in the Reach, and despite unfavorable conditions we picked a few fish. Rather than struggle with no movement we opted to head into the ocean where we would find a very good body of fluke. We had some shining moments with 6, 7, and 8 fish on at a time, however, we suffered from a poor ratio. One angler told me that he caught over 40 fish with nothing to show for it. Kenny Havens was the FlukeStar of the day, winning the pool and earning high hook honors with 3 fish. This was a step in the right direction after the way things were the past three days. Looking forward to see what tomorrow brings!
Ken Legend won today’s pool and was high hook.
Check back tomorrow for more live updates.
