Fished aboard a charter for fluke on The Fishy Business with Capt.Phil Kess and mate Tommy.First off What an incredible boat Capt.Phil runs and Tommy was on his game attending to everybodys needs.This was my first time fishing with Phil and it was first class all the way!

As for the fishing I was very satisfied catching numerous fluke in different sizes.Since we were only able to keep a slot limit size, numerous 21 to 23 inch fluke go back to hopefully fight another day.We boxed 22 keepers on the day in the RSA slot limit of 17 -20 inches.I also bucktailed up the big fish for the day that took a pink white and silver teaser 15 inches up with the standard spearing.After careful measuremants and a quick weight the mini mat went 7.3 lbs.A nice way to start the season,that beautiful fish was released wich was great to see.

My only complaint about this trip was that the RSA fluke had to be purchased by Captain Phil,its hard to believe when ther are more fluke then anyone of us have ever seen including the 70s and 80s that you have to pay for the reasearch st aside fluke permits.Unfortunately the for hire industry has no choice or they will not be allowed to fish at these times.Despite paying for the extra poundage Capt.Phil did not charge us extra for the trip!What a shame,Managemant is working,lets let the charter boat industry and all the private boaters fish!!!

All in all another incredible day that I was able to spend oput on the water with freinds,Thank you,Brooklyn Mike for setting the trip up!

I agree, Rob

RSA is a ridiculous concept. There's more fluke out there than both of my grandparents ever witnessed. For the captain to have to pay to be able to fish is absurd. The charter industry has so much working against it, they certainly do not need this. Imagine if they charged Donald Trump $1.65/lb. for the steel he used during the contruction of his buildings.

Nice fish, BTW. Phil runs a great boat and is a terrific guy. Glad you guys had a successful trip. upup

Who you kidding you only had 1 slot keeper as I did.All your fish were to big and had to be released!ToungueToungueToungue:It almost reminded me of when Toggy caught his 42 short tog in RI Lol.

All kidding aside youupup definatly showed us all up when it came to quality and quantity,but then again I thought we were a team.Are You joining up with the lounge boys Jay!surprise

Sorry I missed you but I belted this report out in a few minutes before sleep.Shades
