Went out Friday 9AM- 2PM to fish for Fluke. Launched at Wantagh Park ,tide was outgoing, light wind. Nothing, not even a bite the whole trip. Did anybody fish inside Jones Inlet yesterday ? Bay was pretty crowded with boats , plenty of shore fishermen, didn't see one fish caught the whole day. No sea robins, no nothing. I fished Jones Beach Pier to the Meadowbrook, Swift Creek South of the Bridge, Jones Inlet both sides . Not even a sea robin ! I hope we have good Meadowbrook Bridge fluking we had last year. Fluke fishing doesn't look good this year.

I went under the 2nd Wantagh and saw some boats North of there. I fished there about 2 weeks ago and nothing. Yesterday I jigged with bucktails. I also saw a bunch of boats hugging the shoreline a little west of Wantaugh Park over by Levy Preserve Pier. Might try there next time. I saw those boats going out , but I wanted to see if the Meadowbrook was good on the East side like last year. Frustrating Fluke year for me.Thanks for the tip.

Not alone. Although I ditched the motorboat and just kayak fish and surfcast now, I stay in touch with a trusted friend and neighbor. But for a tiny fluke, I was skunked off the yak Friday (again) but he and two others only managed a few fluke, one keeper, and these guys are true sharpies. (They only fish the ocean in the fall, staying in the backbay and out to JI otherwise.)
