Fluke (Summer Flounder) are on the move in early spring and so are the Long Beach Island charter boats.
Fluke have been a staple around Long Beach Island for years. The Fluke move into the area around Barnegat Inlet and Long Beach Island in early spring based on water temperature and other factors.
They're typically caught while drift fishing. Unlike Sea Bass who like to hide in rocks and other structure, Fluke lay flat or slightly bury themselves in the sand to blend in. Fluke are usually found in between the structure out on the reef or in the areas nearby.
As the season progresses the Fluke action continues, and this Long Beach Island charter boat captain puts his customers on the fish.
