Tough Fishing

The charters over the last few days have resulted in less than expected results.  Neither the fluke nor the striper fishing has been at all consistent or productive.  There may be fish in an area one day, and the next day they cannot be found.  The squid fishing has also been less than good.  Needless to say, it has been very disappointing of late.  A boat from my dock and captained by a great fisherman went to Block last Sunday and 5 hours of fishing produced only 1 fluke for 5 fishermen.  The same complaint seems to be everywhere here in the Eastern sound.  The colder water probably contributes and things should pick up in the next 2 weeks, hopefully.
