Raritan bay is loaded with big fluke. I caught my 10.4 in the bay. Don't get me wrong. I love fishing the sticky shit but they bay produces big fish


Me, Jeff and bobble head limited out a couple seasons ago on an afternoon trip on the sea tiger in like 2 hours. When I say limited out, I mean limited out with Almaty every fish over 4 pounds and the majority on the 6-8 pound range. We were trying to rail 2-3 pound fish after we had our limit for fun. Crazy fishing. Right in the bay

Congrats Guys, those are some real nice flatties :thumb_up:

 

Not a big fluke chaser... I tend to prefer stripers, believe my biggest fluke to date was a 6 or 7 pounder.

Hoping to try to get back into some fluke fishing this year.

My best was 8.12. Although it wasn't a monster ,it was big enough to knock a certain hot shot out of the pool. Haha he got all pissy like a little girl and didn't talk to me for week.:D. He's gonna try to deny it but Lou witnessed it :beer:

With all the years I've been fishing Raritan and Sandy Hook, my biggest was maybe 7lbs. My son caught a 9lb while on vacation at Holgate Inlet. I like the back bay light tackle spinning flukin the best. We had a great June last year with many limits on the Keyport Flats using light spinning tackle. Peanuts were around most of the summer which helped.
