I keep what I am allowed keep and we eat it all winter. An 18 inch fluke is a nice sized fish with pleanty of meat. I had some last night for dinner. Saying that you only keep 20+ inch fish sounds kind of stuffy to me. Maybe you need to bone up on your filleting skills.
THE past few years I have not been able to get the boat in the water untill mid July..seems I miss the opening of the season...I hear reports of nice fish inside...by the time I get the boat in its over.....I must admit I dont put in the time like years ago...just a few drifts and a boat ride with the family after work...I got one keeper last year.....not into bottom fishing out side just inshore trolling.......Years ago we caught large fish inside up untill Aug. my best two were taken in 3 drifts just before sundown on Aug 11 ,03.....one was 9+lbs and one 7+ lbs .... you dont see that much anymore in AugustBIGGESTJACK said:By June 15th Where Do You Find These 18" To 20" In The Back In Any Quanity???? Even The Old Grounds Has Not Good At That Time???
I had a spot last summer behind Av/Sh that held some fish year round...but then with 2 of us in the boat we only managed 3 keepers....I bet if we fished there April we would have the boat filled...BIGGESTJACK said:By June 15th Where Do You Find These 18" To 20" In The Back In Any Quanity????
