Squaw Island Fushing Club had their annual spring trip yesterday, 4/26 on the [b]CAPT.PETE[/b] out of Freeport.

Headed down to Romer for a shot (maybe last?) at the flounder.

Beautiful weather and great conditions, made the 23 anglers very happy.

Started off on the last of the incoming just east of the shoals and the southern edge of a fleet of 50+ boats.

First drop and we had a 13 inch keeper before the pots hit the water. 10 minutes later, a fat 17 " flounder. Tide went slack, and at the beginning of outgoing we had a flurry of action again. The tide was ripping requiring 8+ ounces to hold, which didn't help the bite.

Once the tide slowed the fish showed again, even though we were chumming very lightly.

We picked a few more fish and then moved right up on the east side of the lighthouse.

Within minutes, another flurry of a half dozen fish, with the eventual first and second place pool winners being caught.

Finished the day with about 30 flounder, biggest going 3.4#. Several other fish in the upper 2 pound range.

Strange that we had no shorts, every flounder a 'keeper', and all caught on mussel, even though we had worms, clam and other tidbits on the hook.

All 3 mates were super and Capt. Pete gave us the extra time and effort to make the day a complete success.

Highly recommend his boat for a group charter!
