Boy,... Even you guys out there on boats are having the same results as the surfcasters on the north shore. Man... The north shore is SHOT!!! What the Hell happened? Just got back fishing with bait and Not even a Hit! This season just keeps getting worse......

Just got done with 2 weeks vacation, spent most of it drifting Fluke by buoy 11(Pt Jeff) never had a limit but never went home without a few in the bucket. NEED WIND for a proper drift!! Had my best scores last 2 hours outgoing and the turn. Sacrificed my first keeper (17") each day and used Fluke belly with spearing, always ended up with at least 1 Fluke over 23" 3 -4 lbs. I was fishing the shallow area west of the buoy just before the drop off, goes from 10' to 53, I'd start deep and drift up over the high spot. Tons and I mean tons of shorts!! Had my father in law (from Florida)with me on several occasions and all he did was thank me for putting him into fish all day. If you don't have wind with tide or wind across tide pack up and head home or go for Bluefish. Fish are there just need the right drift!

When you get that frustrated, get some clams and find some rocks or structure and put down yoy lines for porgies, They're all over the place and the action is fun.You can filet them and fry them and they're delicious
