OPENING DAY BABY!! The early word is that there are some fluke in the bay. We will find out very shortly. . . Just a reminder that we will be sailing daily as of today. Our magic hour fluke trips will begin tonight as well. Those trips will run Wednesday thru Saturdays from 5pm to 9pm.
Flukemaster Pool (May/June)
Since the season opened in the middle of May, we are going make May and June one month for the monthly pool. The total collected on day one was $120.00.
A little bit of magic. We headed out into the ocean and had some very good condition with the current just beginning to run. We will only have a little window to fish here because the drifting conditions will become too fast with the current and wind together.
The conditions have become unfavorable. We are going to head back into the bay and give the Coast Guard Ledge another shot. Only a handful of shorts caught on this one.
Not so hot. And the weather is falling apart also. We are going to completely change up the area and head west.
Check back tomorrow for more live updates.
