For those flounder fishermen that possess the ability to find keeper flounder the back bay areas are still producing keeper fluke. Wally Bockman caught 5 keeper flounder from the back bay yesterday. Although far from the 39 keepers him and his crew boated last week from the waters of the Delaware Bay, 5 keepers is an excellent catch for July in the back bay.
Eric Reeves caught an 28″ flounder to top off his limit catch. Reeves was also a top finisher in the annual good old boys back bay flounder tournament. I should have a few reports on weakfish as the tide cycles around. All of the fishermen that are targeting weakies are releasing the fish due to the condition of the stock.
John C. from Stone harbor caught 5 kingfish from the beach yesterday. The water temperature was 74 degrees at high tide, water clarity was an 8 with 10 being the clearest water.
