We left the dock at 6 am on opening day of Fluke and ran through some rain as we headed to Barnegat Light area with my 2 neighbors. We switched gears when we saw some birds working the inlet. For the next hour, it was crazy striper fishing, hooking up on almost every cast. We iced 3 from 33-36″ before we headed to the fluke grounds. We managed 3 fluke between 20-23 inches with lots of shorts but no slot fish! Unfortunately, we couldn’t fish the areas we wanted to because of the wind and a 2-3 mph drift. We called it a day and we were back at the dock by noon. Cold and windy day but a great day fishing.
