Headed offshore on Tuesday of this week for fluke. It started out slow but picked up once we began to get a better drift. Moved around to a bunch of spots and put together a six man limit up to six pounds. Also, caught some nice sea bass. Great weather as well!

Good way to put it! We usually run out of Cape May and head south or to the area of the CM Reef.

gotcha. way to find em. most of the guys from my marina have been hitting the reef (CM) or site 11. some guys guys are running all the way to the old grounds. i would do all that, but my boat isnt quite sea worthy enough to risk a long distance offshore trip. i could do CM reef on a good day, but even then need to keep a close watch on the weather. besides i've been finding some decent fishing in the back bays and inlets lately. the other day, one of my sister's step sons put his first fluke ever in the boat, a solid 25" that took a live spotfish. actually first time he ever even dropped a line down for fluke and literally a minute later he's got a 25" at the boat. call it beginners luck i guess. hopefully i can continue to find fish like that close to port, until the fall fishing picks up.

Nice Dano, i knew i should have done something with those spot i was nailing in the back bays at night on my ultra light. Especially since the bait shop by me was selling them live, should have put 2 and 2 together.
Itching for some fishing.

Thanks. I have to give credit to insomniac haha. Booked a trip to learn his method for live lining spot for big bass since topwater has really dropped off but the fluke were the only thing biting
