Went out this afternoon and got a good supply of green and calico crabs. I'll be using them tomorrow morning. I'll leave the flounder for others. I want MR TOG ;) I'll let you know.

First report of the season .....WINDY !!!!!!!

On the water at 6AM tried all the favorite spots. Looked like we were fishing in chocolate milk, the water was so muddy.

Windy about 25 knots and couldn't hold bottom.

Tons of of grass.

Back in by 9. There are too many nice days ahead to waste time on a crappy one.........guess i'll get the honey do list over with so I can try again tomorrow.......

Well, today is tomorrow. I fished for about 2 hours. I almost had a bite. Did I mention that there was a breeze? I am a slow learner. I'll probably try again tomorrow. ;)

One flattie at daybreak and about 10 blues. Here was my trick today with the wind in mind: I anchored close to a producible spot and casted a 3oz. Btail laced with a whatever--you---call--them strip and then bounced it from there. Missed two other fluke-like hits. No weakies and no stripers on a hi-low rig sporting a blood and clam strip, I wonder why :rolleyes: ??

Tough day today. NE-E at 20 knots. Back bay water temp 59.7 but looked like mud. Clearer water near the inlet but only 50.5. The wind blowing my boat sideways against the current was making a wake. Called it a day early at 10 am. No fluke for me.

I decided to wait till late afternoon when the [email protected]#$ was supposed to lay down a bit. Got out at 5 with my son, and the wind was still honkin. Took about 8 drifts in a w#%@ protected area. Actually found some semi-clean water. The blues were relentless, and wouldnt leave us alone long enough for a chance at fluke. Switched over to chunking herring at a bridge for the last hour of light. Had 2 run-offs with no hook-ups. Try again this week.

I sold the boat last year and went with a guy who doesn't have a clue. You know the kind, "I caught 3 20 inchers here last year, let's try this spot" Tells me he caught them there last year in July.
I try to explain that deeper holes and cooler water are GREAT in July but it's MAY, 58 DEGREE WATER TEMP, AND BLOWING IT'S BALLS OFF,WE NEED TO MOVE OUTTA HERE !!!!

But I bit my lip cause it's his boat and at this point I don't want to waste anymore time and just want to go home........

Sunday morning at Anglesea. Green crabs. 3 hours. Got 1 TOG 15". Only saw 1 other caught. That was about 11" or 12". Incoming water. Had to leave before the water got where I like it.
Mothers Day, you know how it is. I'll probably try again Monday. ;)

Fished Sat. the 8th at IRI and did well on the tog. Top of the tide in 56 degree water. Bait of choice was green crab but they would not hit it. I had 6 peelers with me that I was gonna use for trout but the tog seemed to like em. 3 fish around 17" and a bunch of throw backs but it was fun. The only other fish I saw caught all day were shad and 1 keeper flounder.

Fished with a friend today behind OC. We had a little engine trouble so we couldn't venture far from the dock. We still managed to scratch out 3 keeper fluke from 18" to 21" and 1 16" blue in about 2hrs fishing time. We caught our fish on the incoming with strip baits. Water was dirty but fishable.
