Fished today with Jim and Dave. We started out catching some sand sharks. They weren't as big as the other day so we quickly changed gears. We hit the flats and found some blues and stripers. We caught them on jigs and Jim caught a few on the flyrod. We switched gears again and chased the fluke around. We had three keeper fluke to 21" plus several shorts. The weather was beautiful and it was a great day. Pro Tip: When throwing jigs in shallow water, keep your rod tip high when you retrieve. This allows the jig to run higher in the water column and makes it less likely to foul on seaweed.
