JUNE 2012 FISHING RECAP

Water temps early June were a major concern and highest I have seen in 50 years this early in year.
Fluke bite was dropping off and the normal influx of 13-17″ undersize fluke was not being realized .Fluke bite was hit and miss the entire month.There were some decent legal size fish caught but no numbers like years past. I managed to get 34 fluke with 7 legal fish up to 24″
Striped Bass bite was also hit and miss with wind playing a big part in ability to find fish.Bass were on the move,one place one day and not there the next. I got 22 bass with largest being 27″.When wind allowed the surface popper provided most action otherwise it was a trolled bucktail.Drifting eels was not producing. A few Bluefish were caught but no big schools of Bluefish that you normally see in June.
As month ends water temps are pushing 80 and a major concern for balance of the year
Spent several hours looking for Trout (weakfish) but no success
Not one of my best Junes ,more like my worst June
