    After a fairly decent 2 months of fishing the Navesink, this morning I ventured out onto Raritan Bay to sample the supposed great fishing that has been reported from several different sources. Prior to the trip I talked to several fishermen, captains, & mates that I know at the dock and after hearing what they had to say I wasn't very optimistic. We, along with just about everyone else, headed west towards Keansburg to fish the flats on the green side of the Reach. The light NW wind coupled with the ebb produced a decent drift as a slow pick developed. My first fish of the day that was caught on the initial drift of the morning was a nice 21 1/2" specimen. Subsequent drifts in the area produced a few more shorts and another keeper of 21", for my total of 10 fluke for the trip. There was a sizable crowd on board, but not enough keepers or even shorts for that matter to go around for everyone. While the overall size of some of the fish isn't that bad the numbers are way down, which is something that I've been saying for weeks now. Tight Lines! TINKNOCKER
