What is the best bait for fluke?
When it comes to bait, the favorite choice for fishing fluke among anglers universally is squid, either fresh or frozen. Depending on your preference, you may want to cut it into strips or use the whole squid. Other popular choices for fishing fluke are sand eels, killifish, fluke belly, and even minnows.
What is the best time to fish for fluke?
As a rule, during May, June and early July you’ll find the best fluke action at the start of outgoing tides as warmer water from deep inside the bays is pulled out into the main channels, inlets and harbor mouths. During the heat of summer, cooler rising waters generally trigger the bite.
How do you fish a bass fluke?
This is the most common way a Zoom Salty Super Fluke is fished. You simply take a hook and run the point through the nose of the Fluke until the point emerges where the slit of the belly starts. Pull the nose of the Fluke up the hook shaft to cover the eye of the hook and then run the hook point up through the belly.
How do I get more fluke?
The best way to hook a fluke especially for a beginner is to wait for that extra weight on your line, this is the fluke swimming along with your bait halfway in his mouth. After about five or ten seconds he will flip his tail a few times for the extra speed, open his mouth and swallow the bait and hook.
What size hook do you use for fluke?
For bay or shallow-water fishing, go with a size 3/0 or 4/0 octopus, sproat or wide-gap hook. For larger fish, ocean fishing, or live bait, choose a 6/0 or 7/0. The bigger hooks work better with larger baits and make it tougher to stick the shorts, resulting in fewer fish to be released.
