Fluke Fishing Long Island’s Great South Bay

It’s 6AM on Saturday morning and I’m not quite fully awake as I drive towards the marina, passing only a handful of cars on what is usually a busy highway. I was meeting up with my friend Mike (the captain) who was prepping the boat for a morning of fluke fishing on the Great South Bay.

Fluke fishing is great because all you have to do is let your weighted hook sink to the bottom and just jig your line a bit. According to captain Mike, the Great South Bay is full of fluke right now. We fished between the Fire Island Lighthouse and the Kismet Inn. Although we reeled in a number of fish, size regulations that require each fluke to be at least 21 inches long forced us to throw a few back.

We managed a few keepers, but ultimately the size regulation is good as it helps to rebuild the fluke population around Long Island. And there is nothing wrong with catch and release…”Honor of the Fish.

  1. I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and interesting, and without a
    doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something not enough men and women are
    speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I stumbled across this in my search for something concerning this.
