Beach Haven Boats Target Fluke
<p>The boats of the Beach Haven Charter Fishing Association concentrated on fluke fishing this past week. Captain Fran Verdi on the "Dropoff" reports he found fluke in depths of 44, 48, and 65 feet and even one drift that went from 62 to 55 feet. On one recent trip he had 20 fluke with four nice keepers including one doormat that measured out at 25 inches and 4.5 pounds.
The "Miss Beach Haven" with Captains Frank Camarda and Brant Whittaker has been seeing the fluke fishing action in Little Egg Inlet and in the ocean improving on just about a daily basis. Mate Sal Rosa reports that trips over last weekend produced a good number of fluke including some sea bass and ling. Pool winner Sunday was 11 year old Xavier from Budd Lake with a fluke that weighed in at over 4-pounds.
Captain George Finck of "Sparetime Charters" fished Little Egg Inlet for fluke with Jenny Dauer, her dad, and three brothers over the weekend. With the ratio of keeper to throwback being very low, Captain George made the decision to try trolling off the beaches of Long Beach Island. That proved to be the right move as they enjoyed plenty of action and ended up with a nice catch of 1-3 pound blues.
