On the party boat Big Mohawk, fluke fishing, on the ocean, was great yesterday and good all week, Capt. Chris said. A 7-pound 10-ouncer was biggest yesterday, but some sizable were claimed throughout the week. The trips fished every day, though a few of the head boats did not. The Big Mohawk is fluke fishing 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.
Ocean striped bass fishing was a little slow, but picked a few, said Capt. Pete from Parker Pete’s Fishing Charters. The angling wasn’t nearly as good as before, and not a lot of trips sailed, but a little fluke fishing did, on the ocean. The fluking was picking up, not great yet. “You know, there’s life,” he said. Bucktails caught better than bait, and two sea bass per angler will be able to be kept beginning Friday. So those fish could be mixed in then. The ocean’s warming, so Pete hopes the fluking just keeps getting better. Trips aboard include annual On the Water Seminars that teach bucktailing for big fluke in a non-threatening environment. Inexperienced can learn the skill, and experienced can hone it. Trips also include family cruises that fish and enjoy sunset. Don’t have enough anglers for a charter?
