Me, Loosedrag and JPHooks fluked yesterday out of SRI...

We headed north out of the inlet to a few areas to hit the flatties. We've been Fluke fishing in between stripers but this was the first true effort this year at the flatties.

First drift, First Fish, First keeper of the day...





JP with a 7 pounder, Which took a chartruse spro jig with a gulp shrimp and maybe a strip bait but I don't remember.

Looserag continued to hit the same drift for the next many drifts with fish and keepers on every drift.

The gulp 4 inch swim minnows in chartruse tied above the bucktail from a cut dropper on a 3/0 octupus did a number on the fish yesterday and last week. I ended up with a fish just over 6 pounds that took that gulp and it's the second fish of the year over 6 pounds on the same swim minnow.



Well we had a good day with many many fluke caught... 75 + I would say for the day. 50 feet of water was the hot dept for us. and the bait of choice was bucktails and gulp in many styles and flavors.
When we got back and I opened up the fish box to count the total number of keepers, we were pleasantly surprised. We were guessing about 10 to 12.

Loosedrag's son and daughter... Nick and Julia.
They can't keep their hands off the fish!


It was a fun relaxing day as we wern't in "Striper Mode" for once this Spring.

We did fill the livewell with bunker but that's another story:eek: :D

Nice fish TSS. We were in the same general area on the 14th. Quite a few pods of bunker, but we did not find any bass/blues harrassing the pods. My crew picked thru 25 or 30 fluke in about 2 hours, but just 2 keepers. We stayed a bit closer to the beach in 30-35 feet of water. Next time we'll look a little deeper!!!

Ha !!!! I was out there a little bit south of you .

Here's a funny story .
I was out with my bro on his boat , same as your old one. Wellcraft . While heading home a 1/2 mi from the inlet i spot your maycraft.

I told my bro the story and he just shook his head . This time i said to myself don't deny it , you know it's him ! So i have my brother chase you down in hopes of telling you , why don't you sell the boat and just come with me all the time . I mean it's not like i have any secret spots or anything LMAO

We caught up and i saw it wasn't you. damb it! The one time i decide to come over and say hi and it was some fat bald dude wearing a sun visor like you do . It was a dead ringer for your boat .

Ya see , thats what i get . Next time you can come over to me LOL .
Theres only one other boat in NJ that matches mine so i think you'll be safe thinking it's me .

I assume SRI is an inlet - Is that in South Jersey?
