Feeding Frenzy in Buzzards Bay

This past Thursday ( 18th) I guided Kevin and Brian bean from VT.  I decided to take them to upper Buzzards Bay since low tide was at 4:40am and the wind was calling for a southwest blow 7-15knots.  This would be perfect for bringing in the Fluke on the incoming tide as Kevin had indicated they would like to try for some Fluke action.  We left the dock at 5:45 and ran maybe 1 mile before we had birds everywhere!  I handed them each a medium spin outfit and the Striper and Blue action was on.  They caught two nice Blues and we stopped counting at roughly 20 Stripers in maybe 2 hrs time. My guess is they each caught 12-15 Stripers all about 24-27″, just shy of keeper size.  Turns out this years hatch of young River Herring must have left the Herring Pond and hit the west end of the canal on the evening outging tide, talk about timing!  After the topwater bite slowed we hit a few of my secret spots for Fluke.  We no sooner staretd our first drift and we had doubles on Fluke.  Each drift was like that with a few Black Sea Bass and A Sea Robbin or two mixed in.  Again we stopped counting at 20 fish, but I would say they landed 30 Fluke?
