Signs of fall fishing - Fluke: Two-minute warning

On this week's video fishing forecast, managing editor Matt Broderick talks about tagging fish up to 49 inches with Gray Fish Tags. He also gives us a quick surf report with a special guest this week. Last week Hurricane Larry passed us by, making it challenging for some boats to leave the inlet due to swells. This week's contributors also give us their best reports and insights as to where to fish this upcoming weekend. Also, remember to get those last drifts in for fluke soon, as the season-ender is approaching.
