It’s a fluke

This is the biggest fluke (summer flounder) I have ever caught. I landed it off of Succonnesset Shoal on the Fourth near the tail end of the ebb tide.

It fed four of us. It had big teeth.
The sucker was so big it hung over the edges of the cutting board.

  1. oh Dave, whst do you do with this flatty, the same thing you do to a halibut, but for less time under a broiler?

    It is a nice fishy, though. Way to go!See there really is a purpose for bait?
    Oh you need a bigger cutting board!


  2. Now that’s a doormat! Nice catch Capt. Churbuck. They raised the min size in NJ to 18″ this year but I still haven’t landed anything of that stature (yet!) — I’m still trying.
