Full of enthusiasm , got down to boat and waited for fog to lift, and waited, and... anyway finally got out 3 hrs late and set up for flounder. Almost immediately had a fish on, the years first sea robin. Proceeded to get spiked and bled profusely. (glad I got that over with) Another 10 of those and moved further back in the bay where the robins were waiting, and caught a few short (under 20") bass. Moved again, and getting ready to leave, caught my first 15" FLOUNDER 2018. Chum pot back in the water, 15 minutes ready to leave, another black-back equal size. This time I really did leave, with some hopes for the upcoming season.
