AUG. 15TH. FISHING TRIP

I CARRIED LINDA ON MONDAY TO SEE IF THE FISH WERE STILL BITING. WE WENT EARLY SINCE IT WAS GOING TO GET IN THE 90′S AND HEAT INDEX OF OVER A 100. WE FISHED TWO SPOTS AND CAUGHT FISH IN BOTH OF THEM. IT WASN’T THE BEST DAY BUT WE CAUGHT 9 FLOUNDER WITH 2 OF THEM BEING KEEPERS. IT LOOKS LIKE ITS GOING TO BE SEPT. BEFORE THEY GATHER UP THIS SEASON SINCE ITS SO HOT. WE ARE READY FOR IT TO HAPPEN.   BUSTER

ON THURSDAY I HAD JIM BASH, COLIN HILBRN AND ERIC REED OUT TO FISH IN THE BACK WATER. WE WENT TO THE OCEAN ISLE BEACH AREA AGAIN FOR THIS TRIP.  IT WAS PICKING BACK UP AS FAR AS FISHING WENT. WE HAD 11 FLOUNDER AND 5 OF THEM WERE KEEPERS, WITH 2 OF THEM NEAR 20 INCHES. ITS GETTING BETTER, HOPE IT KEEPS ON AND GETS LIKE LAST YEAR.

WITH OUR BEST DAY BEING 28 FISH.  ALSO ONE DAY WE LIMITED OUT WITH 12 KEEPERS OUT OF 13 FISH, HARD TO DO THIS , I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THEM START BACK THIS SEASON FOR A MONTH LIKE THAT . A GOOD AND ENJOYABLE TRIP.   BUSTER
