It's Getting Better

Saturday we headed for Lewes with thoughts of flounder again dancing in our heads.  Left the house at 500AM, got the boat hooked up and headed south.  After an uneventful ride, we arrived at the boat launch to find a boat or two getting underway, but relatively light boat traffic.  The weather was in stark contrast to the previous trip.  Winds were light, weather was warm, and the seas were calm.  We were going to fish the canal again, and drift minnows on flounder rigs.  Made a few drifts before my father-in-law hooked up with the first fish for the day.  After it was in the net, we knew this fish was close to the 18" minimum size required in Delaware.  But no matter what, we couldn't stretch this fish past the 17 inch mark.  We made a lot more drifts in different parts of the canal and even ran out to the bay at one point, but in the end we were only able to land three short flounders total.  Sorry, no pictures, which makes this a boring blog post, but I wanted to update on my adventures.
