Comments: Very disappointing day on the water. Started out getting bait at 5:00am. Three tosses of the net and off we went with plenty of live Bunker. Bounced from spot to spot looking for Bass and Weakfish. All that we could find  were a bunch of Bluefish. I decided to do some Fluke fishing.  2 minutes in, I catch a nice Fluke(5LBS). I thought we were going to have a great day. However that would be it. We caught 1 other small Fluke.  Rand caught several big Bluefish

 

I netted that Hickory Shad(bottom right).

I found that Hogchoker down at the beach washed up.

The unusual name "hogchoker" comes from farmers who used to feed this fish to their hogs. The hogs would often have a hard time eating the fish’s scaly, bony body.
