Default NO FLUKE or was it?

Went out to try my hand at Fluke yesterday. Organized my Fluke gear, loaded the boat for Fluke, and headed out for Fluke. I did bring two striper outfits just in case.

No luck from 9-1pm. Just small fish making off with my squid. I stop for about 10 minutes for a sandwich and a cold drink. Off in the distance I sea some birds gathering between the cannal and the old channel. I also see some splashing on the flats so I decided to take a look.

First cast I catch myself a healthy 9" striper. I was happy that I did not get skunked. I was drifting pretty fast and on my next cast I caught a 25" striper. I headed back to start over. In approx. 200 yards of drifting I caught 3-5 fish, all approx 26"-27". Back to the starting point and this time I decided to start closer to the canal. I drifted and did not catch anything on my first few casts so I thought I would go back and start closer, but I got one more cast in and Bingo.......I caught a 32" striper

About 20 fish in all I guess. Was a great time. Tried again today. The fish were there but smaller and less frequent. A good time all the same!

Nice work. Getting 20 fish even if they're small is always fun. I went out to the Charles yesterday for 3 hours and caught 2, 36" and a 38," lost 1 using eels. What were you usin?

I was using a black/silver colored 6" Rapala (fitted with better hooks and O rings). The bait they were chasing was similar looking.

Although I hope most people who have a boat know this or should I say could come to the assumption this location produces many species of fish I will keep the post details to a minimum moving forward. Your point is taken! I have many more spots that are not so obvious that produce and those will stay close to the vest.
