    Default Trip report; Sunday, Aug 11

    Left CM inlet and went SW for approx. 11 miles. Very nice day with cooler Temps and calm seas. Left the dock at 6:30 A.M. and back by 2:00 P.M. Had 5 Keepers , 2 that just missed the mark by 1/2"[they went back], and another 30 to 35 throwbacks. We did drop 4 to 5 Big Fish since on the Spro on the bottom we were using long Squid Stripes or long Bluefish Strips. Skates were a problem and we caught only 1 Sea Robin. Nothing else came up . Hot ticket was 3 inch Gulp Mullet in the bright Chartreuse color. Most of the fish were caught on the top Teaser hook dressed with either Gulp or Spearing[Frozen]. Only rough fishing was when we got closer to Delaware just before the deep drop. 8 ozs. was like a joke trying to hold the bottom.

    Jumped on the Porgy Friday, decent bight early and late when there was some drift, slow most the day with no drift.40-50 fares, probably 30-35 keeps. 4 got their limit, including me at 19, 22, 23" jigged 1st two, they took spearing & meat on the cheater, got the last and biggest on tandem hook rig, glow skirt with meat & 3 spearing on each hook. Caught 6-8 shorts including 2 at 17 & 3/4...the gulp only crowd was pissed I outfished them with bait haha

    We did the same general area yesterday and had some keepers, not as good as Tuesday. Skates were a major problem as slake tide was skate city.
