Left dock at 6:00. Ran down to buoy 7 area and started trolling about 6:40. Water was flat; no working birds. Used planer boards with 50 feet of tow line; 2 to 3 lines each board. Pulled big and small umbrellas and tandem lead heads & spoons. Two lines off corners of the stern with 10 to 16 oz in lines and big (standard?) umbrellas. Trolled same area as Saturday, 35' to 22 foot depths, picked up an 18" and lost a slightly bigger fish next to the boat in first hour. Had 2 knock downs and another lost fish and threw back a few 15" - 17" by about 8:00. Saw another boat pick up a double hookup of school sized fish. High tide was at about 9:00 had little acton from 8 - 10 trolled to Md side and back with one knockdown.

Heard of a 33" fish being picked up from a boat up near the Piney Point area. Ran up there and picked up a few more throwbacks and one keeper. Heard of one more trophy sized fish being lost alongside a boat in that area. Went home at 2:30. Only two keepers: 18" and 20" Not the best day, but the smaller fish still gave us some pullage. All but one took the deep line off the port side of the boat with chartruse umbrella or a chartrese & blue back 9RS. Other fish took the deep starbord side umbrella (chartruse) Some hit in 60 to 80 feet near center channel and some were in 40 to 22'.

Still hope, but it seems the big ones are mostly gone. Very little radio chatter Sunday too. Mowed grass Sunday evening; fishing was definitely more fun!

I was there when they boated that one bout a hundred yds from us, very few reported sat though and too slim pickings for me now. It's time for lower bay. Bill
