Anyone know where the partyboat Riptide is from? I was out fluking on Saturday Morining in Smithtown bay in the slop. This boat appeared from the West. He followed the James Joseph around for a while. Then he started following some private boats around. It appeared as though the captain had no clue how or where to fish for fluke. He was basically copying the other boats around him. He was even doing a poor job at that too (he would end his drifts right before the boat was about to drift over some productive bottom). At one point in the day, he took the boat for a forty minute boat ride east to Cranes Neck, fished there for ten minutes, and then took them forty minutes back to where he started. I felt bad for the fares on that boat that day.
