-------- Sat 7-19-08: Part 1 n 2 : 8am -8pm --------

--------Sat 7-19-08: Part 1 : 8-12:30 trip.------
Planned the Annual trip with Rich , Nick, Rob -R-N-R
for Flukin the N-shorth mons ago - didn't get out last year or even the year before--so i geuss it's really Semi Annual...
prepped and cleaned the boat for the 1st time this season...really-- took me til midnight to get everything
squared away..bought 2 new poles so we would all be on even ground..competition. Last time they out fished me...

meet @ the dock between 7:30-8
all on time 7:31am --
in the water and under way by 7:45am--
(little did I know wouldn't be back until...8pm)
-------------------------------------------------------
-low tide @ 7am
[email protected] 12:30pm
-water 75
-air from 85 in am to 92? HHH in afternoon
-breezy 5-10 until 1pm - slight cloud cover
-------------------------------------------------------
Conditions could not have been better- perfect drift
, slight . slight chop - but a calm smooth steady drift

good thing since everything was prerigged for just such a situation...

Rich had 1st fish on --Bluefish @ 8:11am ..very good.
then it was robins galore-- just glad we were picking fish left and right robins n blues--double headers on both..8:16am
Nick had the 1st fluke on -15"-..8:31am

this is what I had hoped for -- constant action.
9:07 Rich had his 1st fluke on..16.5"

it pretty much went on like this the entire time..short fluke, robins, blues--great action..Rich was pounding the Robins
when we would have a lull - they would ask why they stopped biting...i kept sliding off the spot of small fish looking for larger fish..they had to mixed in there some where...
10am --- bam! big fish on - largest of the season for me ---23.875" and 6 lbs.- beautiful fish - swam away like a rocket acroos the surface..wonderful sight.

(no more jokes about outfishing the fisherman..)
I had a 20" not to soon after as well..last drop had a 18" as well...but those were the only larger fish in the mix mostly small 15-16" fish..

what a great day!!!!!! so glad it was action packed -
each man had about 50 fish --mostly robins --but still a great mix..
--done @ 12:30pm
had to get them back to the dock by 1Tounguem -
---------------------------------------------------
total:
Rich : {Magic Bus + homemade pink teaser}
( he was the only one really counting -just because he had a robin every minute..You know it's alot when There are Batman and ROBIN jokes thrown in there..)
-42 robins
-8 Fluke , 15- 16.5" ( one on the homemade teaser n sandwich combo)
-2 Blues , 19-20"

Rob:{crazy Chart + grenn teaser}
20-30 robins? a double header
8-10? Fluke , 14-16"
6+ blues , 16-19" - double header

Nick: {Sandeel + Blue drk Green teaser)

1 Keeper Fluke ( 24" @ 6 lbs)
12 short Fluke ( 1 @ 20" , 1 @ 18")
8 Blues ,18-19"( - blue / Robin double header)
-------------------------------------------------------

after I let them off @ the dock --I figured it was so hot on land That I would just go back out and Relax until the heat lifted..--w/ a breeze it's the best place to be on a hot HHH day.. was really planning on being back by 5pm..

see .....part 2..................
______________________________________________________________________

-------- Sat 7-19-08: Part 2 : 2pm - 8pm --------

Dropped R-N-R @ the dock @ 1pm after a good moring of action...but since the 12:30 h --wanted to get in on the good tide bite
back out ---- stopped for more bait -- ( 11 packs on the day--)
-------------------------------------------------------
[email protected] 12:30pm
-water 75
-air 92? HHH
-breezy west 5-10 until 1pm then it died completly and switched SSW @ 10 -25 mPH! blowin hard by 7pm- slight cloud cover by 5pm
-------------------------------------------------------
Stopped on the spot where I picked the 24" earlier in the day...done drift and I was already thinkin about where to move to....bigger fish are out there..so I went to a spot that I haven't fished in Mons..

2:35pm :1st drift -- 5 fluke - 2 nice 18-19 shorts and one keeper in the mix --21.375"

drifted the same run a few more times pick in blues and fluke and robins again..until about 2:45 when the breeze died completly....now I was starting to BAKE--seriously..Bake..so Hot and uncomfortable ..but the bite was good..drank water and more water --waiting for the breeze to return..if I could just wait it out..
so hot..

finally the breeze retruned @ 3:20pm --slowly @ 1st and then it was like a fan turned on outta the SW- 1-15 then...20-25mph? gusts @ 30? so windy 3-4ft short white capped chop..rocky..

but the bite turned on hard as well....I had the best bite I have ever had!!!!!!!! just because of the consistant Quality of fish... most fish were 19-20"
with 4 more Keepers in the mix and many large or larger fish dropped..I know there were some doormats in there, some where, and I wasn't leaving ...because as long as the fish kept biting ..I was stayin...bite lasted for nearly 4 hrs...................

everytime I would pass the pile --i would get a Blue or a robin and restart the drift... I didn't really need the bait...I would miss a fish and another would shoot acrros and nail it..bounce , bounce Bam fish on...crazy..net down....measure 19-20" back in bounce, bounce...miss...miss...miss.. bam..keepr...--just insane.........................

I have NEVER dropped the net so many times---one right after another...some winged in the side came up and I thought I had my doormat--when a 20" fish comes up sideways...man that puts a rush in you..when the nearly 23" fish came up I thought it was another sideways fish...must have been pushin past 6lbs...SO fat..

by 7:30 the wind was too much and bite slowed so I called it and bounced and smashed my way home leaving the water several times..Wohoo! I was flying high.

back to the dock @ 8Tounguem
home by 9pm--what a day...my hands I like pin cushions..
------------------------------------------------------
total:
5 Keeper Fluke ( 21 - 22.25")
40+ shorts ( unreal: 25? that were 19-20.25")
15 blues ( 19-23")
20 robins?
------------------------------------------------------
-Thanks Grandma -3yrs goes fast--still like yesterday.. God Speed..sky was pefect.
-Happy B- day to my Niece - 7 yrs goes faster..
-Smiled all the way in and still smiling today..
