A trip Thursday met rough seas but did bag a few summer flounder and some bluefish from the bay on the Salt Talk, Capt. Howard said. Seas were calmer, a little chop but not bad, on a trip Sunday that caught about the same aboard. The trips fished at the ditch between Egg Island Point and the 19 buoy. Trips aboard had been fishing at the wreck buoy, but Howard heard about catches at the ditch, so moved there. He heard nothing about other catches like weakfish, croakers or kingfish from the bay. Bait stealers like sea robins and baby sea bass pecked at baits on the trips. A 15-inch cobia landed was talked about on the radio. Some red water was around, and Howard didn’t know the cause, like maybe one of the creeks or rivers was a cause. The Salt Talk used to be a Fortescue party boat. Howard sold that vessel, and the new Salt Talk is a charter boat for up to four passengers.
