Aboard the Capt. Al in Point Lookout Capt. Tom Weiss told me it was a very good week for porgies, sea bass and summer flatties. Fluke to 9-pounds came over the rails and there were good numbers of 4 to 7-pounders. Sea bass went up to 4-12 pounds and some sharpies limited on both species. The best scup action was best along the inshore grounds. The flatties are leaving the bay for deeper water. Quite a few mackerel were in the by catch. The full day trips depart at 7 a.m. Capt. JR said porgies are still cooperative on the night bite and so are the sea bass. A few nice size fluke have been mixed in. The boat sails every night for porgies and sea bass from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m.
