Two trips today - a little better success on keepers.

Two trips today - keepers were biting a little more.

 

First, I had Eric Haase with his brother-in-law Craig Fordyce and girlfriend Caitlyn Tornes on a 4hr Bay Fluke trip. With primo conditions (wind/tide), I kept the three using the S&S Bigeye tipped with either fresh, live, or artificial baits and it paid off. We worked from spot to spot, and the trio ended the day with 4 keepers (18, 18, 18, 19.5). Caitlyn lost a nice fish early which would have made it 5 total, but still a good day on the bay. Nice job!!

 

Second, I had return client Chris Pacione of Pittsburgh, PA with his two sons (7yr old Enzo and 10yr old Leo) and his brother Jeff of Boston, MA on a 4hr Bay Fluke trip. The winds really kicked up out of the south for the late afternoon trip, so we were pinned to work only a couple of areas with the tide. The foursome did a great job in really tough conditions (wind/tide) and landed a respectable 24 fish keeping two for the table (18, 20 inches). It was a pleasure to see the boys again, and looking forward to getting them out next year.
