Someone once told me that if I saw a shooting star on the way to my boat in the morning, that it would be a good day. This morning, a green meteor streaked across the sky so I had high expectations. I wasn't disappointed.
Our first stop was a wreck off Manasquan Inlet. After tossing a buoy over the wreck, I noticed that we had minimal drifts. In fact, we rarely went more than 200 feet beyond the buoy on our multiple drifts. No matter, we kept working bucktails with chartreuse Gulp, and most of the fluke we boated were of legal size. Excellent ratio of keepers to shorts.
I should point out, the first and biggest legal fluke of our trip were caught in the river. So the fluke are still there. Since my fishing partner for today is also fishing tomorrow, he stuck me with the cleaning of our entire catch tonight. I hope that I won't need a miners light for this chore.
I wonder what the upcoming hurricane will do to the current population of fluke???
