Did a quick trip with my son (3rd grader) yesterday after he got his homework done. Gogs on the kite and pilchards/gogs on the flats at different depths in the water. Picked up a solo sail on the long kite bait in about 125ft just south of the Deerfield pier. Jonah fed him and brought him to the boat after a 25min fight for a clean release. Next set managed a just short mutton on the vertical jig in 90ft. It was a kind of slow on the radio without too many boats out. Seas were a gentle 3-4ft swells with a great N and E drift. Back to the house before dinner. Hope this helps.

    Great report!!! I took my daughter 6 yo daughter with me a few days ago, no sails, but we caught some stud kings and she loved every minute of it!!!

    We would have loved to find the kings! I can't seem to stumble on to them even though we are looking for them.

    We heard through the grapevine they were shallow, it was true, we caught them on the hook in 50ft of water! Chumming live pilchrads of the transom!
