Time to Catch Some Flounder!

Flounder season is here…finally and with it, warmer temperatures. All good for local fishermen and fisherwomen…or is it fisherperson? Whatever…I now am among their ranks, after a fabulous day of fishing on the Duke O’ Fluke in Somers Point.

Last September we went fishing with relatives visiting from the Poconos, and we had a fabulous time. The day was picture perfect. The crew on the Duke of Fluke was great. We rented rods and even got help putting on the bait. If our lines got tangled, they were right there to help us. We caught a lot of sea robins and seaweed, but only 1 flounder.  Hopefully the flounder are getting hungry now!

It is a great way to get out on the bay and inlet and feel safe with experienced boaters. If you get a chance in your busy schedule to take some time off, the Duke of Fluke is the perfect way to get out on the water and even learn how to fish.

Important Info - Bait included, refreshments available, a head available (bathroom), $3 rod rental available.

$22, Seniors $16, Children 12 & under $14 Cash or checks, no credit cards.

First come first served. 3 ½ - 4 hour trips.

The boat was full of experienced fishermen, children and novices. We all had a great time! The kids were even given a chance to steer the boat with the captain!

Duke of Fluke On the bay at Higbee Ave. Somers Point 8 am & 1 pm

Call ahead to find out their schedule 926-2880

Cinco de Mayo Feast at the Ocean City Yacht Club

The Epicurean Society celebrated Cinco de Mayo at the Ocean City Yacht Club recently enjoying great food supplied by Bill McGinnity and his staff from the Yacht Club. We started off the evening with nachos, tangy fresh salsa with cilantro, fresh vegetable and cheeses, spicy shrimp,meatballs, sausages and wonderful hot hors d’oeuvres. The Yacht Club hosts private events and has one of the best views of the sunset in the area.

Next we were treated to a Mexican buffet of salad, pork, fajitas with grilled peppers, onions and chicken and toppings, and grouper. For dessert we had fried ice cream, which had a warm cinnamon sugar coating (pictured below). We also enjoyed tira mi su and almond cream desserts.


Peter Mora, President of Atlantic Cape Community College , spoke to the group about the significance of the local college which provides the area with low cost, commuter access, higher education. They have an open admissions policy and about 40% of their students transfer to Rowan or Stockton. The college helps students who might have trouble with math or English to catch up with refresher courses or help those who never had algebra.

ACCC has 13,000 total students and a top ranking archery team. They look forward to adding a Science and Technology building, a new student center and more fitness programs. Mora also praised the Culinary Program which is celebrating its 25th Anniversary.

The Epicurean Society is hoping to go to Careme’s, the Culinary School’s student-run restaurant in the fall for one of their meetings.

The other speaker was Doreen Prinzo of the Concierge Association of Atlantic City. She told the group about the importance of the concierge to spread the word about tourism in the area and announced there will be a Restaurant Week coming in March 2009 in Atlantic City.

Careme’s Fine Dining by Local Culinary Students


We had a fabulous luncheon meal at Careme’s at Atlantic Cape Community College Academy of Culinary Arts. The culinary students prepare and serve the buffet in a professional and friendly manner. The meal started with creamy corn bacon bisque. Next we enjoyed the cold buffet including many wonderful different salads: tossed green salad, fantastic carrot salad, fruit salad, creamy cole slaw and pasta salad. We also enjoyed cheese, crackers, chicken pate, prosciutto and pepperoni.

For the hot buffet we enjoyed veal Marsala, creamed shrimp and salmon, an interesting layered portabella mushroom, fabulous mashed potatoes, creamy risotto, tender filet mignon and green beans. For dessert we enjoyed warm bread pudding with crème fraiche, oatmeal cookies and sponge cake with berries.

This fabulous lunch was $15 per person and is served Monday – Friday when school is in session. Dinner is also served. BYOB. Be sure to call ahead to get more information. 609 343-4940. Spring classes will be done in the middle of May so make a reservation soon! You’ll be glad you did.  It was enjoyable to see the future chefs of our area learning and practicing their trade.
