Caesar Pesarini and I went out fluking on Friday 6/26 with a forecast of beautiful skies and light NNW winds and for once the weatherman delivered. We started in Double Creek and quickly had 5 nice shorts and one that Caesar lost at the boat that looked like it would have made it. Unfortunately, the action died after an hour and with the NNW winds and an outgoing tide, we were drifting across rather than down DCC. I decided to try High Bar Harbor but the wind and tide made that small piece of water even more difficult to fish.
I then made the move to the BI buoy where I had some recent success. There the combination of tide and wind pushed us on a nice long drift south along Oyster Creek in 7 – 9 feet of water without fear of running into boats, buoys or shallow water. We probably hooked 20 more nice shorts and two nice keepers: Caesar got a 20″ fluke and I got a 22″ one. Best of all – no dogfish or skates and surprisingly no crabs!
