Bay/Inlet Charter - Multi-Species Trip

This past week I had Patrick and Nancy M. of Virginia on a 4hr Bay& Inlet trip and the goal was to target a variety of species. The ocean swell left the inlet unfishable, so Plan B was to work different areas by drifting fresh baits in the back. Patrick hooked up with small Sea Bass, while Nancy who never fished before, would've caught her limit of keeper Fluke to 6.5 pounds. All of the Fluke caught were above the 18-inch limit and RELEASED. It stinks that the season is prematurely shut down. Patrick threw artificials, but couldn't raise any Striped Bass.
