Talked My buddy "Soggy Norm" into a winter flounder trip today, To nice to stay home! Trailed JR up to barnegat to look for some action. Very slow for us in the AM, headed outside to check water temps, around 38 just outside the north jetty. Headed back into the bay, water around 45 north of oyster creek 47 south of it. Headed into the creek and found some boats on the hook in 54.8 degree water :eek: !. We finally got some tasty flat fish in the box, only 6 to 15.5" but at least it was enough for dinner! It's been at least 25 years since I went winter flounder fishing, it won't be that long till I'm back doing it again :D ! Next time I'll bring more chum

RR is a good perfesser. Nice Pics!

Way to get some dinner for Norm's family. Knowing the way Norm fishes, they probably forgot what fish tastes like


Pat Howz Jr. running? Did you mount the new BarnFest bench/rodholder?

Life is good indeed, Johnny D. Wouild you have it any other way?


Capt. Lew,
I'm looking forward to a fishing year more like 2002 than 2003. The tough part for me is that I'll be coaching and umpiring Little League, officiating swim meets, and sooner or later I'll have to go back to work. :rolleyes: And in the meantime, I still hope to earn the title you have bestowed upon me. If only I were worthy enough. ;) I just got home from the Legion *hic* so I'm not embarassed to say, "I love you, man!" :D
