Me either, Bill..A trip to Lucas got cancelled last weekend due to the fog. I did manage to do some flounder fishing in the bay though and got enough to have a few good meals..Lots of skates and sea robins but some nice flatties too.

Before you start stoning me,a question.Do you ever get them from the beach up there? I never really target them,but last year got a few decent sized ones(4 1/2 and 2 1/2 lbs) From the beach,all by accident.There are a lot of people that get them in the surf here in Jersey.How about up there?

I'm gonna hurt you Bob!! When will you appreciate those delicious fiesty fighting fluke!!!!! Ya, sometimes get them off the beach and definately in the canal, but last year was a bust and so far in the canal I get the doggies when I try for fluke.Gottog could list the finer points of flattie fishing better than me.. but at least they taste great!

Rag,
We occasionally get one bait fishing in the surf. The wire line guys often get them around Monomoy on their jig.

As you know if you put food out anything will eat it. Biggest one I caught was about 6 pounds on chunk herring

those dog fish are getting worse and worse every year

Endorfin,
Fiesty fighting fluke? Sounds like a high school football team...
I know you NE guys(and gals) dont use clam much,so what is the prefered bait up there? Here it is squid strips and live killies,but the ones I have gotten from the surf have been on clam while trying for stripers.When I tried targeting them with the usual methods and rigs,got nothing...

Well Bobby Not that I've been getting any lately, but I've always done best with sand eels, although I've tipped jigs with squid too. "Gimme an F, Gimme an L, gimme a UKE!!

Bobby? Rah rah rah,sis boom bah,fluke,fluke,bah fluke! Give me a fightin sea robin any day!
Back to the topic,do you use live sand eels,or frozen? Down here killies are the live bait to use,(my kid used to trap them and sell them to B&T's and head boats when he was 10 years old).And of course,there are the small snapper blues...

I can't top "Muscrat Love" but often end up whistling "Maggie May". So often, I named my boat same.

Anyway, I thought the question was about bait "up here".

I've worked in two B&Ts on the Cape and the top bait in each has been Sandeels cause there's more of them here than anything else - especially since Cod went scarce. We do carry frozen clams for you Joisey guys though...

Thanks ONSHORE,
Was more curious than anything on what works there.Killies and squid strips are the thing here,but snapper blues also attract the large.This should make Endorfin happy,supposed to go out in my sons BOAT off the beach for FLUKE... However,he is also bringing the heavy gear in case those silly flat fish dont cooperate.Then we are going further off for shark or tuna...
