17 Jul July 17, busy week on the water
The flats were busy last night on eels. Saw a couple of kayaks out early evening and they seemed to be doing pretty well. Two of our commericial guys have had luck with eels as well, grabbing 210lbs so far destined for local restaurants.
Today’s low tide is at 1:30, so we expect some reports later this afternoon. It’s hot a muggy out, but a nice time to wade and catch some fish. Here are some comments from our regular reporters:

The flounder were holding fairly far off the beach. We were wading out as far as we dare and then letting off a substaintial cast. We found them!

Oh, by the way, Watch out for the penguins on the flats.
