June 18, 2018:
Mike Star Island Yacht Club, had plenty to report with the most exciting news being the invasion of moo bass coming from the rips surrounding the point since Thursday. On Saturday while fishing on the "Hurry Up", Bruce Kushner used live bait to dupe a monster bass of 52.9-pounds. Lots of other bass were brought to the scales that were over 40 pounds on Friday and Saturday. Fluke fishing has been very good for savvy anglers that have their favorite fluke spots dialed in. Aboard the "Marlana" Sam Gershowitz and four of his buddies got together this week and put 20 big fluke in the box and also safely releasing many other keepers and some shorts. Sam had the hot hand on the day by landing the three largest fluke of 5, 6 and 8-pounds on the day. Nice job Sam. On Friday, Tom Kiernan nailed a 9.6-pound flattie aboard the "My Miss Shell". The Anderson group fished aboard the "Hurls Girls" for a limit of fluke to 9.4 pounds. Ryan and Tiffany had 4 keeper fluke to 5 pounds. Porgies and sea bass surround the Mecca while bluefish have moved in to the ground fish zone terrorizing and chopping up anything smaller than themselves.
