Went out of Lindenhurst at 8:45 a.m. Used buck tails, poison tail teasers with gulp and a single spearing. Started just east of Flynn's Caught a number of short weakfish and saw many others being caught but all shorts. Then fished various locations working my wayback towards the Coast Guard Station. Two short fluke one belly snagged and one sea robin. Don't understand the reports of many keeper fluke, weakfish, but I didn't find them. Returned to dock at 2:30 p.m. Passed 5 party boats sweeping same area didn't see them picking any fluke either.

, it should be obvious
I went out this morning on the yak in my area. Lost what felt like a 20" plus fluke right away, than lost a smaller one. No tears in the Gulp so they were either hitting way up on the lead head or just mouthing them. Then I shook off a 16 or17" fluke. Not a weak even seen today although I was in a different spot than last Saturday. Two stinkin' robins and I went home.
