I love to cast a large bright spoon (silver) close to a line of floating debri. the mahimahi love to hide under anything they can find. Onch caught a 40 pound bull, under two large seas turtles mating. Mahimahi seem to love the shade usually denied them in open ocean.

carry a tube and a square frame of PVC pipe and a tarp to let ride by weed lines. and light line spinning out-fits and yellow feathers and always keep one in the water at all times.

WOW! Our min size is 17" and a bag limit of 4. When I had a boat I would impose an extra 1" to the minimum size. Never had a problem finding fish back in the day.

Paw paw- where were you fishing ? Jersey, CT, Ma, RI ?? NY at one time we had a much much larger size on the fluke to almost a point nobody wanted to go fish and the tackle shops and charter guys were going crazy up and down all around lost a lot of revenue from that one. boating, fuel, hotels, restaurants etc.

Sorry, I fished the lower Chesapeake Bay, usually right along the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. I always looked forward to Flounder season. YUM!

The Chesapeake Bay is a great fishing area and we have 17 1/2 miles of structure. I never had to venture far from the CBBT to find fish.

May is when the Cobia action starts to heat up. I've caught a few but never when I was targeting them. Always caught them when Flounder fishing. Go figure

Made a run with a buddy down lower harbor and Sandy Hook and Coney Island / Breezy , Jamaica Bay picked up a 23 in Fluke- Released but a very good sign for when the season opens. Bass up to 33 inch tagged and released all in all not a bad run, Water temp in the low 50's

Roger the Cobia ( Crab Eaters ) they are good eating, little Blue Fish fight wise on light line tons of fun. Fly rods super action.
