    Sailed with only 5 fares. First three drifts. We're all n the extreme western corner of the bay-more like the mouth of the Raritan River making drifts between the Perth Amboy shoreline and the sailboats off Perth Amboy. Over 3 drifts there were 3 keepers (I had 1 of those) and 5 shorts caught. Moved to the eastern end of the Triangle. I added two more keepers in 15 minutes and the bite shut down completely as the wind picked up out of the east and the tide changed. Bounced around some before finishing up where we started. 9 keepers for the 5 fares. There was one other limit besides mine, another had 2 and another had one. Pool winner was 20.5"s. Everything was on bait
