Fishing Stuff


Dad and I didn't have much luck with fishing for fluke. I caught two, but they were short of the limit.

When we switched over to porgies, though, we had a lot better luck. They're a tough fish to catch - when it feels like your sinker is dragging along the bottom, that's actually the fish nibbling on your bait, so the best thing to do when you feel something - anything - is to try to set the hook.

One of the guys on the boat filleted these fish for us and did a great job - porgies are usually quite bony if you don't fillet them right. I fried these up in a corn meal/egg batter and they were delicious.
