With the bad weather yesterday and today, I thought I'd post an update to our fluke fishing trips!
Fluke season 2012 has been nothing short of spectacular. While only a couple days have been slow(usually due to bad weather), most days have been seeing fantastic catches and many 4, 5, and 6 pound fish in the mix. We've also had a number of 7 to 9 pounders recently, too! Many days have seen boat LIMITS of fluke, and the days we have not caught our limit we were very close. I don't feel the 17.5" minimum size has bolstered our catches very much, as the majority of the keepers we've taken home have not needed to be measured as they are 19, 20, 21 inch plus fish.
If we can stay in the clear relative to the tropics and don't have any tropical weather impacts to our coast either directly with a landfall or indirectly with a large ground swell from offshore, fluke fishing should continue to be excellent through the remainder of August and continuing through September until it closes.
While August is booked aboard the ADAM BOMB III, September has plenty of openings, particularly on week days. Please, give me a call, e-mail, or text to book your dates. Also, keep in mind that once fluke closes we'll be targeting sea bass and the fall fishery for them is usually outstanding!
