Flukemaster Pool Update
The July pool is currently up to $560.00 and Anthony Rullo is still in the lead with a 6lb 8oz fish. Time is running out to catch the big one!
If your in the pool today you need to know that Steve “Bow to your Sensei” Kerry is onboard. Steve has won 5 straight pools and has 11 wins on the season. There is no one hotter than him right now. Lets see if someone can take him down today!
Steve is so hot right now women are getting his face tattooed on their bodies!
We have a bit of a slider going on today. The lines are running to the northeast and the boat is going to the northwest making for some tangles. We are slowly picking at the fluke with the majority of the fish being released.
We are fishing in the holes that our to our north. We get shots of fish when we go up and down the edges, but not much in the deep of them. There were a couple of keepers caught on this one, but for the most part it was all shorts.
We are still fishing the holes to our north. We catch some fish each time we go through them, however, we do not keep much. Ray Angotti currently has the largest fluke on the boat which weighs 4 1/2 pounds.
Slow pickins on this one. The highlight of the drift was a 5 1/2 pounder which was caught Walter Petko. The wind has calmed down considerably. We are going to try a set of holes to our east.
Some shorts with a keeper or two mixed in.
Fluking was ok today, but we did suffer from a horrific keeper ratio. I would give it a 2.5 out of 5 stars on the fishing, and 1/2 stars on the keeping. Mary Ann Grossman was the streak buster today, ending Steve Kerry’s 5 trip pool winning streak. There are a lot of women around the country who are going to get tattoos lasered off their bodies.
Since I am working tonight I will keep the Live Updates going. Win, lose or draw I let you know how the evening went.

Excellent conditions to start the evening with a west wind pushing us along with the outgoing water. We will be fishing different grounds than we were fishing this morning. Going to try the flats that are northeast of our harbor.
Well, all I can say that it was a start. We caught a couple of shorts. We are making a slight shift to a shoal that is a little west of us. We haven’t looked at it in over a week, so we will give it a shot.
Made this one in the Reach. We haven’t caught many fish in the channel this year. The Reach is usually gold for us every year, but this season the fluke have not been in it in any abundance. . . We caught a 4 pound keeper and a couple shorts. We are going to make the next one on the flats to the north of the channel.
Not good. Only a couple of shorts. Jumping back into the channel and giving it another look.
The fishing was not good this evening. We tried a lot of different areas, but they just did not want to bite. Laura Burg won the pool with a 5lb 3oz fluke.
Check back tomorrow for more live updates.
