Fished the Fluke N' Nuts Flounder Tourney today with my cuz Mike (TRMB) and Rottn Captn. Had a plan to hit the stripers in the early a.m. (to try for heaviest fish) and then switch to the real deal- them flounder.

Well- we set up in a beautiful creek with crystal clear water and a sod bank just waiting to be abused. It was just a matter of time before these boys got on them stripers. We had to work through the grass and the sharks- but we ended up with 4 stripers to 29 inches. (Come to think of it, I personally never did work through them sharks- or the grass either).

Anyway- we should have left the striper grounds much earlier- after all it was a fluke tourney- but- as BAY guys sometimes do- we got striper fever all over again and stayed put.

Finally pulled the hook and headed to flattie land and proceeded to hook up with 18-20 shorties on various baits(minnow, blue fish, herring strips, and others).

Rottn finally put us on a keeper- but we never got 3 fish to weigh in the 3 fish stringer.

We ran to the weigh in with our stripers- hoping to win the heaviest overall fish- but we were beat out by .06 pounds. That's right .06.

Anyway- thanks for a great day on the water Mike and Ron. Enjoyed it immensley!!!

I'm sure they'll fill in the blanks.

Tommy,
sounds like a FUN day. That's all you can ask for. Placing or winning a tourny is just gravy

Gotta be careful about what you say around him, guys. He don't let nothing slip buy.
