Clear and calmer waters gave way to the evening popcorn storms and wind. Still managed to fill some bags with fillets for the clients.

Only one flounder got in the live well this Saturday and she was barely legal. Saw two porpoises working the grass line going in with the tide and came back out with the tide. A friend of mine caught a 18" trout in the same area but that was it.

Looked like hard rain at the sandbar after lunch so we went to the Newport bridge to wash off the salt.

Cobia and reds are thick. Saw cobia at all 3 places I stopped. Went close to shore on the high tide and found a school of mid slot reds working the flats and willing to eat topwaters. Didn’t play with them long before going for a cheese burger. Crazy flat with no wind.

In the end we will conserve only what we love. We will love only what we understand. And we will understand only what we are taught.

Thanks everybody for sharing. Hadn't had the boat wet in months. Tough year for such so far. Too much going on.
Enjoyed the pics.

Nice pix, Captain. :thumbup: You might want to coach your anglers into supporting all fish to be released horizontally to avoid internal damage to their organs.

Numerous studies have shown that fish held vertically by the jaw by hand or a gripper device can suffer internal damage when their organs all smash down together. They are used to being horizontal and buoyant in water. It's kind of like if someone hung you dangling by the ankles upside down.

By supporting the fish to be released with two hands and holding them horizontally (or leaving them in the water, better yet), they have the best chance of survival. The photo of the multi-spot red being supported by the angler in the red shirt is an example.

Not trying to bust your chops, just educate. We all want the chance to catch those released fish again on future trips. :thumbup:

Absolutely with you on this; I’m always down to teach/show/talk conservation.

No sir, measured around 32” if my memory serves me right, and weighed around 11.5 lbs. Was my clients biggest red on artificial, and was released to fight another day.

Had a couple Mickey Mouse shaped spots on him.
