Fished with Joe and family in the bay today. We had lots of action with flounder and we had two keepers. One was 24" and five pounds and the other was four pounds. Great day. Pro Tip: Whether or not you jig, you should pick up your rod tip frequently. Flounder have a habit of just hanging on without you noticing. Picking up the rod helps you feel fish that are just hanging on and going for a ride. If you feel weight, set the hook.
Fished with Mat and crew in the Wilmington canyon. We had four 40-50 pound yellowfin tuna and pulled the hook on a fifth. Great day on the water. Pro Tip: Tipping spreader bars with ballyhoos ups the chances for a bite.
