Bluefish, Striped Bass and Fluke, early June, South Jersey back bays

This was an early morning into all day trip to the Jenkins Sound area.  That's as back bay as it gets.  Launching at high tide at sunrise onto a flat, casting a topwater lure at the banks and having it SLAMMED by feeding stripers just waiting for its next meal.  It really doesn't get any better than that.  throw some one pound bluefish in the mix as well.

I fished light tackle only, and was trying something relatively new and different for  fluke.  Just one buck-tail and a curly-tail soft plastic with some pro-cure bouncing on the bottom.  Usually I would be fishing a heavier buck-tail, with a slightly heavier rod, and have a "HI-LOW" rig with a teaser a-la "Skinner."  

  We each had two keeper Fluke, and two bluefish to take home.


The drift was well planned and the wind direction had us back at the launch in perfect timing.
