Full Day Fluke and Sea Bass
Captain Carl reports a good solid day fishing on the full day boat. Despite some nasty conditions, we were able to pick away all day at quality fluke and sea bass and put together a great catch by the end of the day. All quality flukes and some jumbo sea bass, more than we have been seeing. Anthony Caputo had 3 fat fluke and a limit of jumbo sea bass. “Screaming Reel” Dave had 3 fluke including a 7.1 and a 6.9 pounder and some sea bass. Half Day Man had his limit of fluke and it was great to watch. He caught one fluke over 9lbs, then dropped back down and immediately caught one over 8lbs! He ended up winning the fluke pool with a 9lb 6ozoz fatty flatty! Bobby Lambertson took the sea bass pool with a 4.3lb JUMBO- just edging out a 4.2lbs!
