Maggie and I have gotten out a few times in the past two weeks fluking.
What a difference a year makes?
Water temps in the mid-sixties.
Bait ranged from whole squid, squid strips with mummies(kellies) and fluke belly strips with mummies on our own fluke rigs.
Fished Madison, Clinton and Westbrook areas in depths from 8' to 75'.
Ratio of shorts has been unreal for us (approx. 1 keeper vs. 12 shorts)
Last year on the same waypoints, we regularly caught fish from 3lbs to 8 1/2lbs. Biggest we got in the last couple weeks was 4 1/2 lbs. (boga)
Still trying to figure out if they've moved to other routes to the CT shore or just not nearly as many big fish this season.
Have been studying the charts and have a couple new spots picked out to try.
Will post results.
