went out on sunday to drift for some flounder. the wind had other ideas. we anchored up next to a light house 14 miles from port.

we tossed top and bottom rigs with surf clam strips at the base. we picked up about 50 sea bass, 1"-2" too small. picked up two trigger fish.

the wind did lay down after 5 hours of 3'-4' seas. we could get a drift in the 50' water, ended up with a couple keepers and some through backs.

not a great day, but most stayed in port because of the wind.

Lived part of my life in Hampton VA, right next to the bay. Loved fishing for sea trout and flounder, those are a couple of nice flounder you have in that last pic. Never seen a trigger fish before, how do they taste?

the triggers taste great. those flounder were 17 1/2 and 18 1/2, not the biggest, but their keepers.
