The Last Day of Fluke Season
Sunday was our last fluke trip of 2015 as the season closes today. We started out fishing in the area of the other days hot bite and began picking at shorts and big sea robins in an increasing breeze. Jiggin' Jack hooked and landed a little cow-nosed ray of about fifteen pounds on his lite spinning rig after a spirited battle. The wind messed up the drift and we tried for blues but they did not bite in the shallow water. We tried some different areas and I was tempted to make a run to deep water but the wind piped up to about twenty knots and we headed back to the beach. The wind backed off enough for us to get a little drift with the current and the fluke turned on for the last ninety minuets. We finished out one of the most inconsistent fluke seasons in recent memory with an up and down bite. The weather will dictate what we will fish for the next few weeks until we start to look for blackfish in October.
