    Default Thanks Swirlchaser

    As usual Swirlchaser gets me all pumped up by posting a pic of a big Striper.
    So I head down to the shore no Stripers but I'm eating good. Plenty of Summer Flounder on Clousers. What a feast we had that night!






    And then there was always Sea Robin's for action. Those ugly things fight like crazy.

    Those are some nice doormats !
    Are the peanuts schooling already ? That's what brings the fluke in close like that.

    Rip you are right on the money! Those fluke were right up on a bar slapping peanut bunker with their body's to stun them! Thought it was bluefish(and I've had enough of them for one summer) until one fluke went airborne. For an hour it was fluke or robin on every cast!

    Even a few suprise tide runner sized weakfish. I used to catch the hell out of them right out in front of Leonardo Marina and a limit of fluke while the head/charter boats were scratching their heads. If you fished the channel on an outgoing tide, it was just a conveyor belt of peanuts washing out of the marina. Oddly the weakfish always bit during the slack then once the tide got moving it was all fluke. Fun times though thanks for posting! Now you got me hungry!

    I just realized you posted this, sorry John. Glad you bent the rod, were they where I said they would be or did you have to hunt them down?

    Marco these fish are actually from an earlier trip on L.I.. I haven't posted the trip from LBI because my daughter has the pics. You were right on with that info as we caught 2 to 5 lb blues till our arms hurt . We also got a bunch of fluke and one of the biggest hickory shad I've seen in a long time . I'm on the island (NY version ) right now. Tons of bait and plenty of snappers and small weakfish but so far that's it. Again thanks for the info on LBI. Helps when I can't look out my back door like when I was a kid!
