    I fished the AM trip with @40+ other fares on a beautiful morning. The fluke fishing in the bay as of late has been nothing to write home about. My past couple of trips have yielded only shorts and not very many of those either. Today's conditions provided a decent drift allowing me to work my bucktails the way I like to. We fished shallow water since fishing the channels on a full moon would prove to be an effort in futility. I connected twice on my first 4 casts resulting in 2 keepers in the box. I then hit a dry spell for a short while until a 4 lb. fish took a liking to one of my 1/2 ounce Spro bucktails. Near the end of the trip I would connect with my 4th & final keeper of the morning. The keeper ratio was fairly good this morning as 4 of my 6 fish were all 18"+ up to what would eventually be the 4 lb. pool winner. Tight Lines! TINKNOCKER
