Hope to get out to the shore later this month. So I can be prepared, what's a good fluke rig for drifting the back bays (Ocean City area)? For past years trips I have tied drop rigs with extended leaders but they seem to tangle easily. Thanks

Do you tip your bucktails with bait?

i have to say the biggest fluke i ever caught 8 lbs was in the surf on a white bucktail with no bait worm or plastic of any kind. some will say spearing or sand eels or squid are the way to go. i dont really fish for fluke, too boring for me.

long strip of squid on a bucktail should do you well, or even a pork rind. anything that'll give you fluttering action as the bucktail moves

or you could try the fluke balls; some swear by them, others not so much.

if you decide to go with a convention rig, i'd throw a teaser out front.

PM that dude who posted his fluke trip in the NJ forum.

get withthe program...if you are gonna act like a dick, don't get all butthurt when someone points it out

3/8 to 1/2 ounce lead heed and 3" GULP shrimp or standard three way fluke rig with enough weight to just hold bottom

White curly tail grub with a pink tail on a small jig head. Nails em every time. Not tipped with anything. Ya don't need stinky bait to catch fluke.
ARGH!!! You've given up yet another secret spot!!!!!!!

Bucktail, jighead, leadhead tipped with soft plastic, A Gulp product, spearing, killie, or strip bait bounced along the bottom will score you some flatties and an assortment of other fish

I like 3/8oz up to 3/4oz ones.

Like everyone else said, but I like the GULP swimming mullet in white, yellow, or pink on the jig.
I ate one anchovy, and that is why I did not eat two anchovies.

Has anyone every used a spreader bar for fluke? Or a daisy line? I came across a spreader bar for fluke the other day, pretty cheap, and it seemed like a good idea. 2 oz wieght right in the middle, and 4 loops for tying your leader and hooks too.

Rigging like a drop shot does sound like a great rig. The in-laws I fish with out there typically drift only fluke rigs consisting of two minnow rigs and weight. (They only use minnows, no other baits.)

Old school always seems best, just squid strip and killie on a hook
