    If you want to catch ling AC reef is full. Less than poor fluke fishing from the inlet to as far as I am going to go to bother catching them. And to go to deepwater reef for a few sea bass isn't worth it to me.

    Did you fish there in the afternoon? I was there all morning with about 20 other boats and didn’t see anyone catching. No drift, flat calm and clear water. Wind started to pick up as I headed back in.

    heck, you could've done that 100 yards from most docks in the back

    Fluke begin arriving inshore in early April ,largest on average of the year,they arrive in waves stopping on inshore reefs and sand lumps,this usually continues thru early August BUT each month the average size drops. They will stay in inshore waters 8-10 weeks before moving back offshore on out to Continental shelf to spawn. 30 years of tagging fluke is the evidence I will bank on. So yes fluke are on the reefs offshore beginning early May

    I feel the exact same way

What's interesting to me is how waves of Fluke seem to move on and off the reefs throughout the season. Last year for instance August began with good fishing at a reef where I have a lot of spots saved in the GPS, only to go dead for a week or so mid month. By the end of the month it was easy limits again, plus Sea Bass (where were they all summer?)
    I'm interested in that as well if some fish just hang up on the reefs and never make it to the back. Judging by the headboat reports I'm seeing up north they're hitting them on the reefs I'd imagine they're there down south. This season I really want to work on better fish patterning on reefs
