In the morning I had Ed Cooke of Basking Ridge with his son Ed of Red Bank, and son-in-law Brian Baldwin of New Providence for a 4hr Bay trip. I don't think we can get away from it, wind against tide conditions, meant power-drifting for a majority of the trip. It paid off as the trio boated 4 nice keepers (18, 19, 20, 22 inches) and one lone blowfish. We used a variety of baits and worked a few different spots to find the keepers. Nice job!
For the 2nd trip, I had Patrick O'Malley of New York with his 8yr old son Justin and their family friend Braulio Flores and his 8yr old son Chris on a 4hr Bay Fluke trip. The wind kicked up (more than predicted) which made for really tough conditions with the direction of the tide. The boys did a great job for the first boat-fishing trip and caught Fluke and Blowfish. Unfortunately, we could only get as close as 17 3/4, which was the closet to being keepable caught by 8yr old Chris Flores. No keepers, but the boys still had a great time.
