Midweek trip - All shorts except...

I had Nick Gennari and his son Michael on a 4hr bay fluke trip - the two did a pretty good job jigging them up - unfortunately all of the fish were short.  Again, same story a few in the 17.5 inch range, but still not legal to keep so back they go.  We fished some of the usual spots but the key was to finding cleaner water - the bay water was pretty dirty.  We tried for some blues in the inlet area, but the tide/swell made it too dangerous for safe fishing.  

I had a chance to make a few drifts solo later that evening - I ended up with over a dozen short fluke and a nice 25.5inch fish weighing 6.3lbs.  There are some keepers there, but you really have to work for them.

And yes, my grey Under Armor shirt matches FishHQ siding perfectly...
