I had Mike, Rusty and Antony schedule for a full-day on Thursday but the rain storms kept delaying our depature. Since they did not want to move to Friday (I had a cancellation), I knew that if I could get them out for an hour they’d be sold on a Friday full day. Some, we zoomed out to one of my flounder holes dodging rain clouds – they fished for 45 minutes and caught 15 flounder. While only 3 were keepers (most were 13.5 inches), the bite was hot. So they were sold on Friday.

Come Friday morning, the skies had cleared considerably and they were ready to chase some kings and flounder. Within minutes of reaching my destination, the reels were screaming and a big atlantic sharpnose shark was released and a 30′ king was put in the box. The action was very, very steady – with hits coming like clockwork every 5-10 minutes. This crew did very well – missing very few fish. We broke off a nice one, pulled the hooks from a couple (inlcluding one that came off with a bad gaff job…sorry about that one…). It was then that one of the reels started smoking with our last king hit of the day – 15-20 minutes later, Rusty pumped a beautiful 20lb king from the depths.

The bite slowed right before lunch, so we switched over to flounder. Today, the bite was good – they caught many, many flounder (among a bunch of giant toads) with 2/3 of them being shorts. In a couple hours they managed six beautiful keepers, broke off a few bigguns, etc.

Great day guys!
