I noticed it was just about high tide, as I glanced out of my living room window. I was pretty sure, I had enough gas in the boat for at least a short fishing trip. Knowing, if I used time to get gas, I would miss the best part of the tide. I spent about 1 hour and 20 minutes bouncing from spot to spot. When I was tying the lines up, I had two nice back bay keeper summer flounder onboard. The boat traffic was about as bad as it gets. The water clarity was about a 6. the water temperature was 74 degrees.
