Flounder have finally returned to the Delaware Bay. Last weekend most of the boats reported catching at least one keeper while some caught the limit of 5. Bruce's jumbo sized minnows seem to be the best bait so we are keeping well stocked with live minnows daily. Last Sunday one of our boater said he had to hook nearly a hundred smaller flounder in order to get five legal size. Another Money Island Marina member said he found his five keepers quickly with only about 10 hooked.
Open house on Father's Day was a lot of fun. See the photos on Facebook. When is the next BBQ?
