Ahh. A nice brisk morning! One of these days the wind will lay down. . . We will have good conditions in the back of the bay with the end of the flood water and NE breeze. Going to get set up and see what swims.
First Drift – 100% keeper ratio!! One fish, one keeper!! Joe Illuzzi got us started with the first fish of the day
Second Drift – We did better on this one. Al Skowronski put 2 in the box and Joe Illuzzi added one to his cooler. Running back up for another.
Third Drift – Good conditions and put another one in the bucket.
Fourth Drift – We lost the flood water, and didn’t catch much on this one. Going to change it up just a little.
The day did not get any better as it went on. We did not catch much after the tide change. We really need the weather to break to get this fishing going.
