I checked my gear this early A.M. It was a nice morning to be down the canal. Not to hot or buggy and the fish were busting all over the place. Nobody was bass fishing!
14 keepers, two egger's, a large V- Notch female and a couple of shorts. All my keepers had various degrees of shell diesease. A lot of good size females. These females are the egger's I catch earlier in the year. They have since dropped their eggs. They all taste good!!!!!! It's nice to start catching lobsters in numbers again. Now the question is what to do with all of them?
The fluke bite is slow but steady at Lucas/middle ground. My friends are putting a day in for a 100 pounds. There is no bite at stony point although the seabass are still there.
I haven't bothered looking for bluecrabs but I will soon.
Speaking of shell diesease on lobsters. When I was a kid we never saw such a thing. Now its so commonplace we don't think twice about it. It makes the lobster meat more bitter and less tasty in my opinion. 14 keepers today and not one without shell diesease!!! Whats up with that?
