Fluke Fishing in the Rain

Good Afternoon Everyone,

 

I am new to fluke fishing, I recently tried my hand at it and happen to get ten in one day; it was a great time. I was curious and was hoping for some insight in regards to fluke and weather. How does rain effect the fishing in your experience? I am used to fishing for striped bass who don’t seem to mind rain and who enjoy white water and strong currents. Though, I have no idea about fluke. The weather is suppose to be rainy/cloudy, with some scattered thunderstorms for the next few days (at least last time I checked). Was hoping for some insight into whether it could be productive or not so much. 
 

Thank you.

They hang out on the bottom so I bet it has little or no effect them. I generally find fresh and saltwater fishing to be better in the rain, so it probably couldn't hurt.

No makomike I don’t believe I am. I am new to fishing for fluke so I did not know, that is why I reached out to this community of Rhode Island anglers for some insight. All of which I appreciate.

Your fine in the rain for fluke. I wouldn't want to be on the water during an electrical storm. The problem I've had, in just rain, is fishing for tog when the cloud cover shut them down. Thanks.

Hint, do you think fish, any fish mind getting wet?

Interesting take, though I would build from what ‘ribeye’ just posted previous to you. They have noted that they notice the tog bite is effected in their perspective by cloud cover. That is useful information. I was not sure if fluke may response similarly to such things, for I do not know; thus why I asked in the first place.

Who is “they”? I’ve been tog fishing for 50 years and I never noticed it.

Do you believe everything you read?

Who said I believed it, and why are you looking to pursue some type of conflict? Listen, I don’t know who you are and I don’t particularly want to. But it isn’t like I made an account on this website to go back and fourth about petty conflict with strangers. Here is the bottom line chief, I love to fish. And currently the world is upside down with a pandemic and protests. Though I seek and find refuge in fishing. It is a fun outlet which appears to be enjoyed by those, or at least most of those on this website. I came looking for advice about a fish I only once directly pursued once before. I am looking for insight which may assist me later on from those who have been doing this longer then I have. You may derive pleasure from bickering with those you do know over the internet. Maybe it makes you feel important or like a special snowflake, but I do not. So unless you have something constructive to add, I plan on ending our short chat. So, MakoMike, or rather Mr. Mike (whichever you prefer best) I hope you have a nice rest of your evening and I wish you luck on your future fishing trips.

I was trying to, maybe not subtly, suggest you use some common sense. Otherwise you’re just wasting bandwidth.
