Fished Monday with Jeff, Jim, Paula, and Jen in the bay. Fluke fishing started off slow but things really picked up when we came across some blues. We quickly changed gears and started throwing jigs. We caught around 10-12 blues, four stripers to almost 28", and a 21" fluke all on jigs. When that quit, we went back to fluking and caught two more keeper fluke and some shorts. Flexibility is the key to capitalizing on opportunities. You have to be ready to switch gears. Pro Tip: Always net fish head first. Never chase them by the tail. That way they swim into the net.
