The Stray Cat fished the ocean the past couple of days, and summer flounder were squirrelly, Capt. Mike said, but a few sizable sea bass were plumbed, plenty of bluefish were trolled, and Spanish mackerel and mahi mahi were mixed in on the troll aboard. The blues and company pushed somewhat farther from shore than before, schooling 13 to 15 miles out. Trips are trolling first then sea bass fishing. They’re also flounder fishing a bit. Got to try for the flounder, and you never know, he said. The reason flounder were reluctant to bite was unknown. Plenty of bait schooled including sand eels, butterfish and squid. Get a group together and come down, Mike said. All who are tuna fishing seem to be catching. Onesies, twosies, he said, and the fish seem everywhere. The ocean is gray-green, not clear, until off 20 or 30 miles. Open-boat trips for tuna are available late this month and in early August. Saturday, August 12, and a couple of Sundays are yet to book for charters.
