 Not as good as yesterday, we had action with shorts but more keepers would have been nice, The drift was a little fast with the wind today that always makes it a little harder when you need the heavy sinkers . Mike Scheer boated his limit but he was the only one today. I do have some suggestion if you want a better chance of having a fresh Fluke dinner. If you go to the tackle store and find a rig with tinsel. rubber squids, propellers, etc. and you think hey that would look good on my Christmas tree, well guess what that's where it belongs! Keep it simple!!!!!If your going to spend money for Fluke fishing Buy GULP. 5 or 6 inch there are many colors. I think they all work, its just a matter of presentation, you have to bounce your sinker just little bounces on the bottom, you will definitely catch more fish and increase your odds of getting keepers. You do  have to put a little effort into it.  You cant just drag your bait!!  Sure sometimes luck comes into play but not always. Some people really take offense when you tell them they should change the rig.  Sometimes people do finally listen but the bite may be over. Believe me I want you to catch, fish, but I would never force you to. LOL There is a  old Chinese proverb, Stubborn fishermen goes home with empty bucket. Some days nothing seems to work but if you listen and pat attention your odds will increase. If you just out for the day and want to relax and sit on the bench and just drag your bait and enjoy the day that's fine, whatever makes you happy. If your happy I'm happy.  I just figured I would give you some tips before you waste your money on Christmas ornaments. And if your not sure what type of rig or gulp color just ask. I sell gulp on the boat probably cheaper then the tackle stores. Me personally I use a 3/0 bronze baitholder hook with a two and a half foot leader of 20or 30 lb test and one 6 inch gulp and that's it. but I never stop bouncing my sinker. Some guys use a bucktail as a sinker and have good success I use just a plain lead sinker. Just watch whose catching fish and copy it.  Enough said Tomorrows trip Saturday is cancelled but we will resume on Sunday. Thanks for listening and hopefully if your success  rate has not been good this will help. If you have been catching well keep doing what you have been doing,  Be safe and see you soon, Capt. Rob
