Misquamicut Fluke
« on: June 19, 2007, 06:03:53 PM »
Went out fluke fishing in the new boat Sunday and today. Sunday my wife, nephew and myself only managed 3 keepers (19" minimum) out of about 20 or so fluke. Today my oldest son and I went out and got well  over 50 fish, but only 3 keepers. Also got in on a bluefish blitz on Watch Hill Reef. Lots of fun.

The boat is awesome!!!!!!

Good Job Mike!

Personally i don't like the new 19" limit on Fluke  Every year they keep raising the limit. I'd rather see them cut back on the creel number than make it so tough you have a hard time getting one for the dinner table  :P

Joe,

I agree with you wholeheartedly.  We had many fish that would have been legal at 17.5". It's funny though that when the limit was 17.5" you would get many at 16.5" or 17". Now that the limit is 19", it seems that 17.5" & 18" fish are abundant.

The other thing that bothers me is that if you have a commercial fishing license the size limit is 14' and 50lbs. Something wrong with that.

Bob,

I'm lucky I can do these written posts, nevermind adding pics, but I'll take some and give it a try.
