Fishing_for: Blackfish / Fluke
Boat: Keep It Simple
I launched from Jordans Cove Monday morning around 10:00am and went to Hatchetts Reef for blackfish on the out going tide. Fished about an hour using green grabs with no hits. There were about a half dozen boats there and no one seem to have any action. So I motored to Black Point and started to drift in about 80 to 100 feet of water and the Fluke were there on the out going tide. Squid, Mummies, Bucktails all worked fine with fish in the 4 to 6 pound size. Four or five boats there and everyone had action with one guy boating what looked like an 8 pounder. I also caught some nice sea bass and some good porgies that I released. Can't keep them until July 13th.
Once the tide went slack the fluke stopped hitting so I went back to Hatchetts and the tide was coming in good but after trying to anchor up for about half an hour I gave up and and called it a day.
Two good fluke 20 and 24 inches a 14 inch sea bass and a small blue fish, 12 inches. Fillets for the freezer.
Time to get out on the water.
