Ocean Fluking

   Love jigging fluke in the ocean in deeper water. Wanted to get out and fish the ocean since they started out there. Tried finding some to go fish but everyone was working today so decided to do a solo trip. Water was 65 degrees just out the inlet but out 4-5 miles it was 60.5. Cold...wasn't feeling good about good fishing.  Started drifting  and had 2 shorts then I hooked a good one. Felt so good hooking him on a jig. He was 25-3/8" and little under 6 lbs. Then a nice keeper seabass. Next one I get is almost 22" then a short and my 6th fluke was just over 19".  So I caught 6 fluke and 3 were keepers. Little better than the last trip inside with 2 keepers and 70 shorts. I had to keep fishing cause I can't not fish a short time. Left that spot after my limit an figured I'd go checking a few areas. Caught fluke in all the spots I tried. Good spread of fish out there. Can't wait to get back out.

Wishing for a bigger boat oceanside won't cut it in a 17ft Montauk

I'd take your to the Mudhole. LoL. My boat is only a 18' MayCraft CC. I have taken my 16 ft aluminum boat 10 mile north of the inlet.

If you pick your weather windows a 17 Whaler is plenty. If your fishing north of Belmar, watch the ever present summer ssw winds that creep up early afternoon. My brother and I got caught up by the rocks in his 14. I think he was 3inches shorter when we got back to Belmar. Way to get it done John.

That was someone else with the 17' whaler. Mine is a 18' MayCraft. 

  Yeah the dreaded afternoon south winds suck....always there
