Although the conditions haven't been ideal, the fish have been cooperating. Fluke are spread out in their usual midsummer haunts, but consider working channel edges and deeper water as the bay temperatures reach 80 degrees. A couple hours of incoming are producing some nice bites. Blowfish, Kingfish, and even a few decent sized weakfish have showed up (5lbs++). I had the Joe Tonetti charter out fishing a combo backbay trip - we ended with a couple keeper fluke to 22 inches and over 70 blowfish. Joe Tonetti and his future brother-in-law Chris Daalder gave the trip to their Dad's as a belated Father's day gift. Later in the week, I had the Jim Crines charter out fishing strictly for backbay fluke - the father and son team had to work for them. We worked alot of areas, combatting the never-ending south wind to produce 4 nice flatties with the biggest close to 4lbs.
I have a few dates open this upcoming week - we can do combo backbay trips or straight fluke trips - no difference in price just less time fluking. Price includes everything - bait, tackle, rod/reel, fish-cleaning, etc.
