TARGET A DOORMAT

Posted By Tom Melton, September 11, 2017
TARGET A DOORMAT
The last week of fluke season should see some good action in the ocean and near the mouths of inlets.
This is a tough week for me as reports due to weather were off a bit. Hopefully the seas lay down this week and storms like Jose stay far away from us. When the ocean is fishable, I would take advantage of the final week of the season by targeting fluke that are preparing to move offshore. Big strip baits, whole squid, live snappers or bluefish fillets could be the ticket to a season ending doormat. Sea bass and porgies are another option on ocean reefs but as waters cool, look for them to provide very good action on deep water wrecks and structure. Inside the bays, if you want fun, grab some chum and anchor up behind West Island or the Moses Bridge for a mix of sea bass, porgies and school stripers.

My seven year old daughter Abigail Rowan aka abby the angler , nailed this 23" summer flounder aboard our 21 proline this morning along the back bay of great south bay. Her bait of choice was 34 bucktail dressed with a nuclear chicken gulp grub tail. 16 inches above that a dropper loop with a bait hook dressed with chartreuse a paddle tail. The fluke fell for the paddle tail even though it was tied on for run ins with weak fish. My only assiatance was netting her great catch and screaming like a chearleader.
