10/21/12: The Lone Jackman- The Lagging Fluke

Dolo Jackson
Location: Dock in Cold Spring Harbor
Time/Tide: 8-9 AM/ Low Tide around 10:30 AM
Bait: Sandworms

The Fishy Wonder hit a local dock to catch some Killis and Shrimp in the bait trap for the fish tank while wetting a line. The Hi-Lo rig with Sandworms saw no action for 20 minutes before getting a nice strike. Assuming it was a Schoolie Bass, Lord Jackson was surprised to pull up a nice, fat out of season Fluke. The majority of Fluke are well on their way to deeper water but this fish lagged behind apparantly. The Fluke would go down as the only catch for the hour as the tide starting getting too low. Nibblers attacked the bait a few times but disappeared by the time Fishy switched to the smaller hooks.
