Capt. Al

August 14, 2017:
Aboard the Capt. Al in Point Lookout Capt. Tom Weiss told me to tell you to come on down for an ocean buffet. Action was excellent all week with fares hammering short and jumbo fluke, sea bass to 5-pounds, porgies, triggerfish, mackerel and blues to 4-pounds. The pool fish is usually a summer flattie in the 6 to 8-pound class. Tom has been targeting the 60 to 80-ft. depths. He noted that GULP baits seem to catch everything. The boat sails daily from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. for sea bass, porgies and fluke.

    Aboard the Capt. Al in Point Lookout Capt. Tom Weiss told me it was another week of very good fishing and once again a 5050 catch of sea bass and summer flatties. Fat flatties to 8-pounds came over the rails and there are many 3 to 5-pounders in the mix. The flatties have responded to porgy and sea robin strips, GULP, jigs and bucktails. Mackerel have appeared and on Thursday the fares had a bail job on chub macks to 2-pounds. Some blues and triggers have been in the by catch. Porgy action was on and off and not very consistent. The boat sails daily from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. for sea bass, porgies and fluke.

    Aboard the Capt. Al in Point Lookout Capt. Tom Weiss told me it was another very good week of action with a 5050 mix of summer flatties and sea bass. Nice size fluke to 5-12 pounds came over the rails. Some anglers have manages to limit on both species and on most days the porgies have provided a good bite in the morning. Ninety-nine per cent of the time the captain was able to drift which brings a better fluke bite and larger sea bass. On Friday the fares concentrated on fluke and hauled in a near boat limit. On Saturday in tough conditions the anglers on boars connected with plenty of scup, a fair amount of sea bass and a bunch of triggerfish. The next day was Super Sunday as the fluke were on the feed and nice size fish to 5-pounds were taken. Several sharpies limited out. Loads of porgies and sea bass came aboard and 75 per cent of the scup were keepers. The by catch included a handful of keepers. The boat sails daily from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. for sea bass, porgies and fluke.

    Aboard the Capt. Al in Point Lookout Capt. Tom Weiss told me it was a very good week of activity with most days seeing a fine 5050 mix of sea bass to 4-12 pounds and summer flatties to 5-12 pounds. The fluke bite fell off on Sunday but the scup made up for it by providing their best action of the year. A few triggerfish came over the rails during the week. The drift conditions were quite good on most trips. Clams and squid were the primary baits but sea robin strips helped anglers up their score on fluke. GULP worked well on all species.
