    I know. I could tell your tone from your post. I was joking myself. I'm the complete opposite of you guys though. I'm too eat up with red fever. I looooong for 20 minute fights with them!

    Nice bulls!

    The flounder story is so dreadful this year. What's going on?

    I got 3 tiny flounders this year. This year I was chasing cobia and summer specks in the western shore, VA until September. So I didn't fish for flounder/sheepshead.
    Weather permitting, I will try in November at CBBT if water is too warm for togs.

    Comeonfish, I have vacation Nov 5-21 do you plan to go out any of those days? I want to come fish but I cant get anyone to tag along and Id like to have someone around for the what ifs. Ive also considered Kiptopeke as an option and Rudee also. Guess it depends on the timing.

    You are not on the opposite site. Everybody loves long fights with big fish (except skate). I have nothing in my bucket list. I think I may add one - catching a tarpon in Eastern Shore, VA. It will be C&R.

    May as well give up on flounder. Wait for cooler water and togs.

    Hope you chase Cobia next year, Joe. Because I want to follow you

    Water Temp is still 68-69 F at CBBT. I checked my logs for togs at CBBT:
    09/24/2016 - caught keeper flounder, sheepshead, and a 17" Tog (water temp was way over 70 F)
    In October, as long as water temp is below 67 F, keeper togs were caught in the past 5 years at CBBT.

    * So I think we can still fish for both flounder and togs. I think we will catch more keeper puppy drum when togging with shrimp. I am expecting many puppy drums at the same tog pilings

    Regarding next year Cobia fishing:
    We will fish between Opening day (probably June 1) and July 15th.

    After that I will search for kayak-able tarpon waters. - I think I can find the waters before I retire.

    Thanks.
