Fluking In Sheepshead Bay New York Is Excellent Right Now
<p>The conditions for drifting this morning were a little slow and that affected the fishing a bit. We did end up with a good catch of Fluke and Sea Bass. None of the jumbo Bass today but about 20 keepers and countless shorts were brought up. We also had over 100 Fluke up to 5 pounds.
The wind picked up nicely this afternoon and we concentrated on the Fluke. At least 250 Fluke were caught up to 4.5 pounds. The action was non stop and everyone on board was in on it.
20 keeper Fluke were caught between the 2 trips today.
