Fellas, went out yesterday behind OC and Somers Pt to do some flattie fishin and the bite seems to have slowed a bit in the back and the water was real dirty. Think it may be time to fish the reefs, what do you guys think? Anybody catching any flounder out there yet? I think ill hit the GE and OC reef next week and see how it goes. Boat traffic inside could be shutting down the bite as well.

I'm still knocking them pretty good in the rivers leading to the lower bay on the De. side.
The skinny water action is still pretty hot, but I am hearing more reports of the fish turning on near the shipping channel in the DB. The dirty water you encountered was most likely the culprit for the slow bite.

I have had a bad time this year behind Oc. My days off are always after a big rain and dirty water, low tide. Fished today all over the bay and back to kennedy park. Most keepers today were back there, I boated 7 fish and no keepers for me.
The reefs still dont have any flounder in large numbers yet.

Didnt do any fishin today but looked around and seemed people were doing better today in the back than in the past two weeks. And everyone was catching keepers and no throwbacks, no monsters but all keeper sized fish.

Fished CM Reef on Saturday. 10 keeper sea bass, plus another dozen throwbacks with most being in the 10-11" range. One keeper fluke at 17.5" and 2 small blues. Steady action for most of the morning then tailed off around noon.

Sounds good to me up and over, just as everything is calm and quiet, here they come!!! We had 2 a few weeks ago split us while we were anchored up. They came no more than 20 yards from us and we didn't think twice about getting some lead out!

We were out there also, not much going on at all. Bunch of doggies and othera ssorted trash fish. Water was nice and there was a freejumping Mako about a mile inside the reef.

I fished the same skinny water spots I did last week. Water temps were 82 degrees at low tide. The flounder fishing stunk. I had one keeper out of two fish. Thursday I tried a spot a little north west of the crossledge looking for trout(where I never catch flounder) and the flounder were there thick. I had my limit of fish in 1.5 hours. Nothing over 22". I think the fish are further north than usual due to the higher salinity in the bay.
