Went on the Speedy Express at noon for some Fluke. Speedy was at the helm today With about 20 fares. We went to the Fire Island reef. Nice 2 foot seas with a favorable drift. Picked away at the fish all afternooon. Many throwbacks of the 18" variety. About half a dozen keeper fluke with a few sea bass thrown in the mix. Almost everyone had some decent action. Mates were attentive and right on it. Caught the pool today at 23 1/2 inches. On a side note, I accidentially dropped my rod into the drink and watched it sink to the bottom. Grabbed Frank's pole and threw a cast to see if i could snag it. Wouldn't you know it, first cast, snagged it. Recovered my Penn baitcasting reel with 6 1/2 foot Ugly stick. Won the pool and got my pole back. Couldn't ask for more.

Actually, almost foiled. Thats what you get when you have wet hands and try to "flick" your rig away from the boat using just one hand. Fishing for almost 45 years and never dropped/lost my pole. Be careful out there. happens to the best of them.FingerFinger
