Went out early before the wind started to crank up and fished the state channel and the far end of the east west channel of of Amityville. Lots of action, but all the fluke were short. I was using Captain Al's killer fluke rig. I was also testing out a new camera that was made for fisherman. The Olympus TG-860 is the best point and shoot camera I have ever used. The camera is waterproof and has a super wide angle lens that makes it perfect for shooting in tight quarters on a boat. This little camera will also give GoPro a run for it's money. The TG- 860 shoots HD video and so much easier to use with it's flip out large screen and much better battery life too. I will be posting a full review in the next few weeks. Berger Brothers in Amityville has these cameras in stock, stop by and check it out for yourself. -TCS

I fished today with Lenie and we had a great time on a beautiful day. We jigged the Captain Al inshore fluke rig and connected with a five pound fluke caught on the artificial shrimp/bucktail combo rig. We also had a school striper, a couple of short fluke and a bluefish to round out the action.
Another great day on the water.
