Default Good Fluke bite

Ran out of Manasquan this morning to drift some rough bottom areas. Fishing was good and I got 3 keepers 18.5 to 20 inches before 8am. At one point we had 5 keepers and only one short. After a couple drifts we did start getting more short fish and the bite slowed up. Nice day on the Ocean today.

My son and I ran out of Manasquan yesterday to the Axel Carlson. Short fluke and sea robins dominated the first few drifts. Made a wiggle and eventually we started getting keepers to 20. Ended up with 5 in the box. Seemed to like a white Spro with a GULP new penny grub as 4 out of the 5 came on that.

As you said, ocean was nice, little heave in the morning but that settled down quickly.

Thanks, going out the inlet we saw alot of anglers catching. My friends got 7 keepers up to 23 inches in Barnegat Bay that morning. Seems like the bite was on for everyone that day. Really like your videos. All the best to you and your daughter.

Sounds like we had a similar day. We did best on a white teaser with a Gulp new penny jerk shad and a strip of Fluke belly. It was a nice day and there was alot of fishing boats out there.

When we first started catching a few keepers there were no boats within several hundred yards of us. By the time we put the 5th in the box we had 4 or 5 within 150 feet (although we did call in one boat who was a friend)
