I'm in, but it'll prob be near 6pm. Lets make it an evening/night trip. I really need to avoid the sun haha. Winston said he's in and he'll be leaving after work. I don't know who else is in but how did those guys do tonight?

Blue fish were thick on the Willoughby side (rock jetty side). Calvin and George were on them when Darrel and I arrived. I caught about 6, which is all I wanted. My fingers are all sliced up and bandaged. I think the others caught some shad later in the night. Didnt see any striper or trout. Called it a night around 10.

One of my student's was there with his dad. Said they got a bazillion stripers, three keeper flounder, and some fat croakers. All caught on GotCha plugs. He was out late and is now asleep on his quiz. Good to see him being brought up right. I'll be out there tonight. Countin' the hours.

Im going to try to get some bull gudgeons before we go out this afternoon, I think I'll try mason's creek before I head out to the marina, just give me a call at 409-1908 if you want to come earlier cause there is nothing worse than getting trying to flounder fish with small minnows that barely fits on a hook, that you paid 3 bucks for, bring your minnow bucket just in case I have extra. FISH ON!!!!!

Ray,

There are so many blues there now you will never get a flounder to touch it. I had minnows yesterday and all I got was bit off hooks from the blues. Better at least bring some long shank hooks. Have fun!

Never say never, there are places out there that you can spank the flounder and you'll never see a blue fish.......

well I know there is alot of bluefish out there it doesnt mean that theyre going to stay on 1 place ... the place I fish around at doesnt really have the chopper problem, if you would call it a problem, but to my knowledge has produced some good flounder action in the past...

Well, good luck. I didn't mean to discourage anyone. I brought my limit of bluefish home last night and I'm going to smoke them tommorrow. If anyone has a smoker, I highly recommend it. If anyone wants to do it I'll tell you how I made my smoked bluefish spread last fall. Everyone who ate it loved it.

Flounder and minnows just piss me off because you get so many little ones and they all get gut hooked. You spend all your time tying on new hooks. I think I will wait until I can get some mini spot or croaker for bait.
