Fluke fishing continues to be good in the bay on the north end of the island. We are catching fish in and along channels anywhere from 3ft. to 12ft. using bucktails, gulp and live bait. The outgoing is winning over the incoming but fish can be caught during both tides. We were out 4 trips and had to cancel 2 due to persistent winds.
Tuesday we had Chris and Amanda Felton from Chalfont, Pa out with their kids Anna (9), Luke (7), and Charlotte (1). Our first couple locations were not great. The group hung in there and once we found them stacked on a channel ledge, they went to work boxing 5 keepers up to 22″! Chris led the way with a 22″, 21″, and 19″, Luke had a 21″, and Amanda had an 18″.
Thursday Rich and Carol Holihan from Perkasie, PA were out with kids Zoe and Isaac. The group fought a tough wind from mid-morning on and could only manage shorts. Rich had high hook with 6 fish.
Friday’s and Saturday’s trips were cancelled due to winds.
Sunday new clients Bryan Yannuzzi, Ralph Manno, and John Sogluizzo of Fairview, NJ worked the cold, bay water and were able to bucktail 2 keepers at 20.5″ and 19.5″. The group had a great time and went home with some nice fillets.
Monday repeat charter Dave Capone of Collegeville, PA and sons Gabe and Bryan returned for their yearly fluke trip. They beat last year’s trip ending with 30+ fluke and 5 keepers to 20.5″. Fishing was great and they were watching the fluke attack their bucktails in only 3ft. of water! Awesome sight!
