Just got back from a weekend trip to the Eastern Shore with nothing to put in the freezer. My brother and I fished hard for flatties both Sunday and Monday (Saturday was too windy) from Plantation to about 3 miles north of 36A, shallow and deep, with only 15 or so throwbacks. Largest 18". No one else watch catching either. Guess the NE blow has them in lockjaw mode, or they're not in their usual haunts. Talked to some folks that fished Kiptopeke and the 3rd/4th island with the same result. One interesting thing was that, even with an E/NE wind, could still get a 1.5 to 2.0 mph northward drift on the incoming. And, fishing was certainly doable. Oh well, weather was great, as was the company, and it beat working by many miles!! Bill S.
Thanks Bill...flounder fishing has been slow this year.
How bout you guys turning off the wind machine so we can get offshore
Just goes to show that, contrary to popular belief, we don't have any control over the weather!
