Moved around into the Sound for the slack water period and enjoyed a solid Sea Bass bite coming just one fish short of our limit with fish to 3.5#. The crew desperately wanted some Fluke so, despite my strongest warnings of poor action with the flatfish we pressed on to Gardiners for about 3 hours of the Ebb tide. Sadly, things remain the same on those formerly fertile Fluke grounds with only 6 shorts to show for that effort. At least Daniel landed one more 3.5# Sea Bass to fill out our limit. We even tried about an hours Fluking in Orient Harbor on the way in but still found nothing but shorts.
Nevertheless, the crew went home with big smiles and nice bags full of tasty “Bass On Bass” filets!
Still some openings this week if you want to cash in on the strong Bass bite. Just give me a call
