Biggest Fluke

post #1 of 62
Thread Starter 

So I want to know what is the biggest Fluke anyone on the town tavern forum has caught. What kind of tackle were you using and was it in deep water . Did you use circle hooks.How much test line. Did you use braid and Florocarbon leader? Did you use a bait casting reel like Abu-Garcia 6500C3 and what kind of material and what line test? Where did you catch that monster?

Remember no Fish stories, just the truth.

wow that's a nice fish . I did hear that if you want the big ones then go deep like you did. What color bucktail? Did you get him while on a head boat?  Are you going out this year for Fluke?

Regular white bucktail with red.

No headboats. Not ever.

I had my own boats for years but am currently without so no, I won't be doing much fluking from my canoe...biggrin.gif
