Tautog & Flounder in the Bay and Boat Limits of Sea Bass in the Ocean

Tautog & Flounder in the Bay and Boat Limits of Sea Bass in the Ocean

Kristen and I have one more day of vacation before we head home and back to full-time business, but I’m not thinking about that yet because St. Lucia has been awesome!  Back home it was back to the ocean for some of the party boat fleet, and some exciting news that flounder are still snapping in the bay.

Captain Monty Hawkins of the Morning Star had a light rail today, but it was still a boat limit of sea bass with some scup and flounder.

Six boat limits straight.. 

Felt a bit of air from the NW parking my truck this morning. Forecast steady 4 days running, wasn’t worried.

My client base sure saw something in the forecast I didn’t though. 

And they were right. 

Sort of. 

A bit of wind, a bit of sea; fish decidedly in no hurry for fresh groceries.. Ugh. By 1pm the day had become what I thought had been forecast – gorgeous. 

Ah well, certainly wasn’t bad weather in the morning – just not what I’d hoped. 

Jeff & Wayne were our guest reef builders. They not only deployed today’s blocks, but helped Brian load three pyramids as well. 

It looked like reef builder’s karma would hold sway and push them into the (teeny-tiny bit of) pool money, then Hung boated ‘el grande’ and put that notion to bed. Joe was first to limit with Jeff & Wayne soon to follow..

No doubt – today was a grind. But we landed a boat limit anyway. 

Have a few more trips up for this week coming. 

Hope the forecast holds!



Tyler MacPherson was fishing with Mason today and they had a great time catching flounder in the East Channel.  Tyler had 8 throwback flounder using Deadly Tackle Deadly Doubles and Mason had 7 himself.  Tyler even had a true “double” with two fish on the same rig at the same time.

Brock Michael had a nice day at Martha’s Landing with three keeper tautog up to 19″.
