Way to go Willie [up] Still better than my day yesterday. I'd trade a day of shorts with a few keepers mixed in there for a day in the office anytime [smoke]

Bill, were you guys in the Shrewsbury Rocks?
I was up there yesterday in my boat. Same basic story. Three guys had four keeper fluke, two were 23 inches, and two legal sea bass. There is no way to count the amount of short bass and fluke. We bailed out at noon and it took my 90 minutes to cover 10 miles back to Belmar bucking that wind. My GPS was showing 7-8 knots at 2500 RPMs. I should have been doing about 20 knots.

Capt Jerry and the Fish Monger burn fuel to get you to the fish. One day we covered alot of areas and that was when fuel was 4.50 a gallon.

Sometimes, conditions just arent right.

I started on the beach in about 18-20 feet and hammered shorts. We went out to 50 feet and got less fluke and more bass. We ended up doing bigger fish with keepers at about 30-32 feet.
