The largest fluke ever landed on the "Just One More" was boated on Friday, the 11th. of July. We had aboard the Shawn Mallery charter. We were fishing in pretty deep water, about 45'. We had plenty of short fluke and some more keepers as well. A lot of the fluke were just under the limit at about a 1/4" to 1/2" below the legal size. Havi Rodreguez had never been salt water fishing before and broke in with some fluke and sea robins. Around 11am, he started reeling in a fish and thought he was stuck on the bottom or the drag was too light. I slighlty tightened the drag and the "bottom" started to move! After a short battle it was netted and I immediately weighed it. The fluke was 10.1 lbs. !! It was the largest ever landed on this "Just One more" or my last boat. We had come close many times but never broke the magical 10 lb. mark. But Havi did it!! It was a beautiful fish that measured 28.5" long!! Congratulations Havi !! Pictures will follow in a later email as I forgot the camera on the boat.
We need 1-2 more anglers for the OPEN BOAT fluke trip this Wednesday the 16th. of July. $80.00 per head fishing from 7am to 1pm. Just give me a call at 908-472-2684.
