Stayed ashore Saturday. Don’t reckon we missed anything.
Plenty saucy today too, but doable. Laura Statts of Christiana PA was our guest reef builder – 12 chimney blocks made into 4 tog condos went by the rail at Sue’s Block Drop before we motored on off aways.
Found a strange bite offshore—mostly in an uncooperative way.
Sea bass were of no mood to chew. Ones that did though were right decent. High hook was just shy of double digits.
Fluke/flounder put on a one man show: with keepers scattered around the rail, Gary Rantz bagged out on flounder.
Then too mahi were spectators. Caught a few, but we’d look at them while they’d look at the baits. Ned Harrington’s pool winning mahi was caught on a sea bass rig – fishing on the bottom. Cant argue with success..
Everyone’s got plenty of fish for dinner I think. But, like I said, strange bite!
Fishermen are forever wondering what changes fish behavior, especially where it concerns their willingness to take a bait. Wasn’t a whole lot of wind in Saturday’s weather, water temp remained stable as did water clarity. I wonder then if the ferocity of lightning strikes made the bite different today.
Tomorrow promises to be a better day – very calm. Lots of spots open. We shall see if the bite comes back on!
