Not a breath of air in the old Shantytown flag; we tied her loose and found a calm sea. Time we got to our block drop with Eva Todaro of BelAir MD as guest reef builder, however, it had come NE at 13.5 knots.
Hmmm.. With afternoon winds forecasted at a near gale I just didn’t trust it. In this business you’ve got to go with your gut. We fished inshore artificial reefs until it came NE at 18, then headed for the barn with full reschedules around the rail.
Lisa Ruziicka of BelAir MD took everyone’s pool money today with a real nice fluke. Had several other good flounder aboard as well. Tim Herbert of Forest Hill MD had the largest trigger.
Here’s a podcast I did with the fellows at Grande Yachts International. They let me ramble a good while about habitat.
With NE winds carrying through the night and intensifying in the AM, tomorrow will be the third Saturday in a row we’ve lost..
