Had a great time on the Mako with captain Dano yesterday. Easily put 60 or so flounders in the boat all on gulp. Only 3 keepers in the bunch. We both dropped some heavier fish, though. Magic rig was the double hi-low gulp skrimp rig. Also got into some bonus jumbo croakers, saw some BIG sharks thrashing around in the back, and some of the dumbest boating moves I have ever witnessed. I even managed my obligatory rat striper that I thought was a nice weakie. Nice way to wrap up the holiday weekend for sure
wouldve been nice to get more than 3 keepers, but at least the action was okay. like you said, we defintely dropped a few keepers along the way. i know that one i had on was a mogan type. we dropped alot of shorts too, the bite was a little finicky. i think its time to break out some live spot fish to get those mogan fluke that are still in the back waters.
i am starting to think that all the rustling around we saw on the flats may have been large rays. defintely possible they were sharks judging by how they were charging and thrashing, but we saw a couple large rays basking on the surface out there too.
the jumbo croakers were a nice surprise. i know we could have stayed on them if wanted too. they seemed isolated.
