Slow summer fluke fishing

Rate this topic

7 posts in this topic

There is this spot that I fish since June and also loaded with fluke and the oblivious sea robins among other fishes. Last few times I went out there is 0 fluke and sea robins. 

 

Where would they have gone? Water is just too warm? 

 

Water depth is between 5- 60 feet, nothing anywhere besides scup, small sea bass and dog fishes.

Fluke regularly move. You have to find them, they're out there.

Well do'h, fish swims!

 

I understand they move, but then why are they at this regular spot anymore?

Fluke are pretty tolerant of warm temperatures, so i doubt that is the reason they moved.

Maybe they moved on to greener pastures. Perhaps bluefish moved them out. Maybe they went in search of more or different forage.

My point is, just because they were there in June, doesn't mean they have to stay there all season. If that were the case, boats would pile up on them on the same spots all season long.

Many, but not all, fluke migrate to the ocean and eventually to the continental shelf. 
 

Do an internet search for summer flounder migration. The information is published.
