|This is the biggest fluke we have ever taken|
from the boat. The fish was close to 30 in. and
was caught on a bucktail jig fished
in 70-80 ft. of water.
|Big black sea bass were in|
abundance today as we
landed many between 5-7 lbs.
Our luck changed dramatically. My brother Steve landed the biggest fluke that we've ever caught from the boat, a doormat that measured close to 30 inches and that we estimated went about 8-9 lbs. We also landed some of the biggest black sea bass that we ever caught in RI waters. We had many in the 5-7 lb. range along with countless other keepers. The bottom seemed to be paved with large black sea bass. We also had another big fluke that went over 20 inches.
So, a day that started off poorly turned into one of our best days of the year. As I've said many times before.....the fish are there, you just have to find them!
